    I don't have a TV. I went with a projector and wall screen.
    The Epson 85HD is great. It's needs a theater sound system,
    but the 10w internal speakers are okay. I jimmy-rigged my
    old 80's floor speakers up, but it was a mess. Great sound,
    but messy.

    I would never by a TV again. I love my 8x4.5foot screen and
    if I have more space, it maxes out at 300" diagonal.

    There are better projectors with auto focus and other features,
    but I'm super pleased with what I have.

    Color TV cost $400 back in the 60s

    That was a couple weeks pay for most families
