A friend with a small room wants to project 100 inches from 10ft. Budget - about $1,000

One of the best short throw in this price range

Also the best all-in-one projector: Optoma DV10 Movietime

Will ask him, but he was hoping for a 720p DLP since you can buy the Mitsu HD1000U for USD899 (S$1,366). The only reason he doesn't get the HD1000U is that for 100", you need 12ft.

".....since you can buy the Mitsu HD1000U for USD899 (S$1,366)".

Interesting that you can get the HD1000U for that price.  Would this be thru VPost as per other thread?  If not, would really like to know.  Do enlighten, thanks.

That was without shipping. For a small item like this, shipping should be under S$100

why not buy a Sharp DT500 through comgateway ? (there are some incredible prices on this unit in BestBuy/Circuit City.) It's effectively a Sharp z3000, short throw, and according to cine4home review, has one of the highest CR for a 720p.

Though the Optoma does not have the resolution of HD1000U, it is more flexible to position and easier to project a huge image at short distances. For your consideration.
