    So

    Anyone have any experience with using a projector for home theatre?

    I was thinking of buying an AR15, but now I'm thinking of BIG TV!

    It'd be nice to be able to have a giant TV and computer screen when needed if at a fairly low resolution.

    at school my drafting teacher has a projector and this special screen thing for showing us stuff. it's neat.
    my friend's dad has one and we watched a movie on it once. It was pretty neat

    Ok, I withdraw my original question and now am asking abour rear projection TV's

    Do they last as long as conventional tube TV's?

    Can you play games on them without harm?

    I know you don't care anymore, but I know older rear projections you couldn't play video games on them. They were much more likely to get images burned in then a tube TV(like a monitor that sits on a login screen for too long).

    maybe it doesnt matter now but we use projectors at work and i maintain them, we do a lot of training and movie watchin and they are very nice. the problem is the bulb burns out after a few thousand hours (4000-10000 depends on type of projector) and are really expensive (600-2000 bucks) and have to watch in a darker room then normal tv. if my living room was able to support the set up id go with one
