    Would you rather own a 58" HDTV or a projector that from 7 feet away projects a 92" screen?

    We bought a projector for half the price of a new HDTV.  Had to do a little work to paint a HD screen on the wall, but other than that the thing is wonderful!  Just wondering why more people don't do this, or what opinions are?

    Many people prefer buying latest technology, I on the other hand always have a thing for classic stuff. So, yeah! I would definitely buy the projector instead.

    I would rather own both smile. Honestly, a projector is ideal for a home theatre but in the long run may not be for every day television viewing as the bulbs will die in about 18 months to a 2 years. IT really boils down to how you will be using it. Those projector bulbs are not necessarily cheap.

    We used projectors at the plant where I used to work.  The bulbs went out frequently and were on the expensive side.  If you watch a great deal of TV, I suggest the HDTV 58".  You will not have the extra large screen like you would with a projector, but the cost will be more cost effective...

    I also recommend getting the warrantee that is offered.  This way, you spend your money up front and have no worries....just pleasure from the purchase.

    Good luck!

    58" HDTV-Plasma. Plasma TV's have a much better black than the others and if you know anything about color pictures you know that a good black makes the rest of the colors POP!! Peace!!
