Picking The Right Projector

Now that you've decided on a price it's time to think about the features that you want in a projector.

Generally speaking the 720p projectors have more features and a higher contrast. But if higher resolution is more important to you, then you may prefer a 1080p projector.

Price wise the 1080p projectors tend to be a little more expensive but when it comes to viewing experience they are well worth the price. For instance the 1080p offers up to twice the resolution of some of the step down models.

But when it comes down to it, choosing the right projector for you depends on your budget and the features that are important to you.

Finding A Projector Screen

When it comes to a screen for your home theater your options are limitless.  And if money is an option you can always use a white wall for your projector screen.  Of course the picture won't be as good as with an actual projector screen but it's certainly an option that you can consider.

Otherwise projector screens are fairly affordable right now and it's possible to get a good one that will last you for a very long time for under $ 200.00.

Hints and Tips

When purchasing a projector make sure that it's a trusted brand with readily available parts. Otherwise you might end up with a cheap knock-off and no way to replace the bulb.
