Deciding between a projector or hdtv

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I'm looking to get a new hdtv or projector, but I can't decide! I watch some hi def movies, play ps3, xbox and pc games. Don't watch regular tv. I hate 3d tv, and am happy with 60hz

I've narrowed it down to this projector

ViewSonic 1080p DLP Home Theatre Projector (Pro8200

or this hdtv

Samsung 46" 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV (UN46EH5000)

Opinions? I live in canada, I would welcome any other suggestions!

I would stick with the HDTV. Cheap home projectors tend to be pretty lack luster and you need pretty much a completely darkend room to get your moneys worth. Some newer LED/laser projectors can put out decent colors/contrast even in a somewhat lighted room but that ViewSonic is your typical DLP.
