Looking for a projector to use with xbox 360, dvd player, computer, live VJ gigs, mobile film shows, art installations, etc etc

Must be portable, at least XGA, have good connectivity, and somewhat bright.

anyone here have any experiences or suggestions?

price range is under 1300

(feel free to move this to a better forum if there is a better category)

Hey there Riley,
I just recently finished my theater room. It's not super big - 10' x 16' with a 7.1 surround and a projector. I painted the screen on the wall and it's 105"x59" - about 120" diagonal. My brother's is way bigger but I'm really happy with how mine turned out.

I went to to get my projector. It's a Sanyo PLV-Z5. It was listed for $1500.00 but they had a $200 rebate and a $100 or camera deal. So I got $300 off. Of course I'm still waiting for the rebate to get here.

But it was well worth it. The picture is awesome. I have it hooked up to my TVo, DVD, and X-Box 360. It has hook ups for Component, S-Video, HDMI, VGA, and I think something else but I can't remember.

I just bought it online from their site and was really happy with the service. I talked to a guy named Eric Breslin, here's his info if you want it.

If you happen to talk to him and it's not too much trouble maybe you could mention my name, they have a referral program for customers. If not no big, I would still look at them. I looked around a lot and heard quite a bit about Panasonics and others but my PLV-Z5 is awesome.

Gears of War, Lost Planet, Dead or Alive 4, Burnout Revenge, are all incredible on the big screen through the PLV-Z5. Can't wait for Halo 3.

Anyway, hope you get something that works out.

it seems as thought most home theatre projectors dont put out that much light, i think i need to look at data projectors, like maybe a dell
