Yes, 5 months ago, in June.
But instead of selfishly using only myself the Samsung 40" F86 LCD TV in a desk as my PC's monitor, I decided to place it downstairs on the main living room, where the family watches TV, etc, because there was an old 21" 4:3 analog CRT TV (from the 90s) in the living room. So everybody is happy now.
Now with the projector, my PC's room is slowly turning into a small (12' x 12') home theatre room. A 4 seat couch has been placed in the back wall, and my next purchases will probably be this and this.
For casual PC usage (web browsing, instant messaging, etc) I use my modest laptop, to save the projector's lamp life.
But for PC Gaming, PS3 Gaming and Blu-Ray movies, I turn on the projector.

Here's a couple of pics of the 115" 1920x1080p display:

Side walls, back wall, and ceiling still white unfortunately, so there is still lot of unwanted bouncing light reflections in the room.
I didn't used a tripod on these, so they are kinda out of focus.
More pics (14MPixels) and videos (Full HD) coming up soon, with tripod, from PS3 games, Blu-Ray movies, etc.

Thanks.
Here are some more pictures:


It's far better to see it in motion, so here are some small video clips of PS3's Gran Turismo 5 Prologue on a 115" white wall, displayed by the projector.
The pictures above are random screenshots from these clips.

It's razor sharp when viewing it in-person.

Hi there, current setup:

So how do you guys feel about DLP vs LCD vs Plasma? From what I gather, if I got a DLP I'd be best off going with and LED based one... right?

Yeah... honestly our Sony WEGA in the living room is a very awesome TV. Excellent picture quality. Probably wont be replacing it till it gives up the ghost.

This is for my room, I'm probably shooting for something between 30" - 40". I don't care about wall mounts, hence why I'm interested in DLP. Would and LED DLP be worth the price? If so, what are some good ones that you guys would recommend?
