    Default Virtual Santa..What Projector Are You Using?

    Going to do the virtual santa this year and was wondering what you guys are using. I don't want to break the bank since it will only be used for this purpose.
    Suggestions on screen are also appreciated.

    I was told to look at the amount of lums. I got a 3000 lums for $100 on Craig's list. Works great, we have a movie night a couple times a year and shine it on the side of the house.

    I have an Optoma gt760. 3400 lumens and also a short throw. dont need as much distance between the screen and projector. Very brights and is I think 25000:1 ratio if I remember. I also use it for movies outside at our church and house, even camping sometimes.

    I use an Epson that can hook up to a DVD player. I have found that from a distance with all the other blinky flashy going on HD is up to you. I made a wood frame to go around my window (on the inside) out of 1x2 pine and covered it with a opaque shower curtain from wall mart and some clear packing tape to hold it on. I use rear projection and it has been working great for 4 seasons.

    I also use the short throw Optoma. Sitting here looking at one and don't see the model number.

    For the money, they're great.

    Looks like the Optoma GT760 is the best option. More than I wanted to pay,but I guess I can always use it for other things.

    For virtual Santa you could go cheaper. I had a 50 dollar projector for Halloween.
