    I guess reasonable is a relative term. What is the budget?

    500-1000

    I'm thinking of getting onw for Christmas or after the holidays if it's cheaper. Although getting one now seems kind of late.

    For 1000 US go with an Optoma HD70. You can find that puppy for under 1K and just go to fabric land and pick up some black out cloth and voila, you got yourself a BIG screen (probably around 100", not sure what width the black out screen come in, and you would use that as hight)

    I am in the market for Samsung LN-S4695D 46" LCD TV. I have been reading expert reviews and that has been useful to me. It may be help you too. I had been using PCWorld.com, cnet.com to find reviews. Yesterday I also used PriceGrabber’s expert review tab (http://www.pricegrabber.com/info_expertreviews.php/masterid=20384866)
    and found a site (http://www.smartratings.com) that aggregates expert reviews. It only covers a few categories but it is pretty neat. Just my $.02.

    I just got the Samsung 40", pleased. You just have to go look at em all and price shop and get what you want. Every type has it's warts and no brand is perfect. And next month it'll be passe anyway! LMAO

    I had seen them on display in one of the electronic appliance store here in our area and thought they're so cool. I'm really dying to buy one of these days.
