Any thoughts on this projector for gaming?

Has a DLP chip in it. Supports the standard HDTV resolutions. Its only 800x600 for PC, but its affordable at $999. Any red flags?

That throwing stick stunt of yours has boomeranged on us.
I've heard of some people seeing rainbow effects on DLP displays and projectors... if you've never had that problem then I can't think of why you'd not want DLP.

But for 1000, I'd reccomend this one:

plus there's no component input on the one you posted, so it'd just be extra hassle in having a component to vga adapter in the mix.

Runco is pretty expensive, do they make a projector (CRT or DLP) under $3000?

You definetly have to buy one used. My friend bought one that had 5000 hours of use, and it cost him <$2000. He wont even need to replace the bulbs until 10,000 hours of use. Think about 5000 hours, thats 3 hours a day for 5 years, that plenty. And it still looks beautiful, the picture, after all the hours.
