We even made the screen ourselves using some nylon fabric from a car upholstery place. It was an 80" screen and we were about 9-10ft away and it looked fine. Most of the movies he watched were divx and stuff that he downloaded, so not really the best quality either.
I'm sure that if you look around you can probably find a projector for around that price or towards the upper end of your budget. I think that it would be hard to find a 720p projector and screen for that price, but a projector alone might be possible. I haven't looked into them in a while though, so things might have changed.
Ok, well thanks. It's defiantly not a home theater I'm going for, just a big ****ing screen!
You know, something me and my friends can sit down and play gears of war for a few hours and enjoy the huge screen. Any suggestions on the projector?
