Projector help

I need some people's advice on projectors. I'm planning on getting one, and I need an opinion on these two.

Can anyone explain which one would be better and how I'd play dvds on it?

www.projectorcentral.com is a good resource for projector reviews. I would also check posts in the projector forums at www.avsforum.com. You'll find a greater cross-section of people who have experience with those units there.

Those are both pretty low-end models. If your budet is limited and those are your only options, I'd say the Infocus X2 is the better choice.

DVDs would be shown native on the cheap one, and almost native (800x450) on the X2. The X2 is almost certainly a better PJ, though. The slightly lower resolution for widescreen (16:9) shouldn't scare you away.

I wonder if you could find the Infocus 4805 in your price range. That would be better than either of them. I know they are refurbished in that range, not sure about new.

Don't know if they sell overseas, but this seems like a good deal

$899 for the refurbished Infocus Screenplay 5000 HD projector (stolen from techbargains)
