Every one knows size matters. That is why you have to waste 1400$ on a tv

Size does matter... Looking at a 32" screen from 12-14ft away realy sucks... it makes it hard to read some stuff that comes on the screen.

Watching on a bigger screen is so much better.

Yea, I miss my old projector... but it did have it's draw backs.

The image would look washed out if there was too much light in the room. Plus with the ceiling fan on the screen would move. It would heat up the room pretty bad lol

But... it was cheap, and had a HUGE image and decent image quality.
