Default Re: Projector or monitor

I've seen an Epson projector at Costco for under $500 so they're really coming down in price. They are very bright and high quality. Makes a perfect movie theater screen. Definitely cost much less than a widescreen HDTV.

I'd go with a monitor. Though projectors are nice too. But for everyday use monitor is much better. We have a projector, well actually my stepfather's company has one, but it's almost the same thing since he can take it home when ever he wants to. But we don't use it much, it's very useful in some situations, like last christmas we had quite many relatives at our house, and ofcourse we had to show them lot's of pictures. So there the projector was very useful. And ofcourse it's good for keeping presentations.

It's not too bad to watch TV from it, but I prefer to watch TV from a TV.

I would go with a montitor. If you can dish out a couple of thousand dollars for a projector you could just get a nice 24"+ dell monitor.


Prices are in CAD:

(Beautiful,lol)

If you really really REALLY had the cash you could go 46"
