Topic:   Effects of color saturation increase

I have a laptop with Intel HD Graphics, and recently I was messing with the color settings when I came upon color saturation. When I increase the saturation, the colors become much richer and look way better than default settings. Now this might be a stupid question, but does keeping color saturation higher wear out the lamp or pixels? This question mostly applies to my 3LCD Epson PowerLite 83+, but i'd like to know if the effect is different on any other type of display. Thanks! - Luke

Topic:   Component to HDMI Setup Questions

Can anyone recommend an HDMI projector? I prefer an LCD projector like Epson or Hitachi, but anything with sufficient brightness, color, and lamp life will do. On the side, I need a Home Theater receiver as well. Of course I would like it to support HDMI, at least 5.1 surround capability, and 500 watts output or more. Any help is greatly appreciated -Luke
Topic:   Composite to HDMI question

I have an Epson Powerlite 83+. I love this projector and it has done me well for over 4 years. However, all of my new devices (xbox, PC) support HDMI, which my projector doesn't. I have 2 options that I am willing to try. A. Sell the 83+ and get an HDMI-compatible projector. B. Buy an VGA to HDMI converter. I understand that option B is much cheaper, but I am ready for a new projector as well because 720p doesn't hold up well for movies. When you leave a suggestion, please leave a brand/model name and a link to a website with specs. Thanks! -Luke

Topic:   Epson 83+ for home?

First of all, I apologize for being a newbie here. I am looking for an inexpensive projector (not necessarily HD) for home use and have found an Epson Powerlite 83+ for $230. I want to hook up my Macbook Pro to watch movies and my Wii. Any thoughts? It is XGA at 2200 lumens which seems good for my needs but is a business/educational projector. Thanks for any advice.
