I built that projector and used a Proview 14" LCD. 17 ms responce (no ghosting that I can see) and I bought it at Walmart for $150. That way if it had too many dead pixals I could just return it for one that didnt. Very happy with the result.

resolution is 1024x786. Not going to find many 15" with higher than that. I went with the 14" because it was a perfect fit on the overhead porjector I bought. The final viewing size is as big as I want it to be. I have a small apartment so I play movies ans such on a 7foot screen on my wall.

As for parts for the projector itself, mine is only 2000 lumens, but It's clear when I get the room dark enough.
