Yea i dont think a screen is needed. As long as you have something white to put it against. Maybe someone else knows different.

Yes I have a HD projector. Yes they are fantastic for films, football and PS3/360. Buy a screen or look out for a projector when they do offers and included a free screen.

it's not a new model (not an HD) but it does me just fine and I just blast mine onto a magnola wall. If you've got light coloured walls, buy projector first then se how you get on. I was all intent on buying a screen, btbh once I'd seen it on the wall I was more than happy.

The best piece of advice I can give you is, make sure you darken your room as much as possible, much better return than trying to buy the very brightest lamp. My lamp is about 4000 hours. I've had the PJ for over 3 years and I haven't even used a 1000 hours depspite using it every weekend.

Everyone is always really impressed when they see the PJ in action. I've got a crap telly but for movies and sports I fire the PJ up. If I had a 50 inch plasma I probalbly wouldn't bother with a PJ though.

In sum

Get an HD one

Black out your room

Impress the pants off everyone

They are ace

I've got a HD700X

Screen
Wall (painted magnolia)

Yes, we've got one. Brilliant. Just project it onto the magnolia painted living room wall ( which, as a wall could do with a bit of re-decoration) - great picture. Love it for Friday night (HD) DVDs

would it make a massive difference if the wall was a very light colour (say magnolia) but the wallpaper had a slight pattern (not like the old days of Blown Vinyl wallpaper:-D)

It depends on what type of paper it is really. If the wallpaper is refelective in anyway and can be very off putting.

When I got my first projector I was projecting onto a wall painted with grey paint. I've now got s 108" (measured diagonally) electric screen with a Panasonic 1080p projector and it was all worth every penny!
