I just had my first showing yesterday. I had been waiting for my projecor to come in. I bought the NEC LT280 and it didn't dissapoint. 2500 lumens, USB and wireless made it a pleasure. The image was crisp and bright.

Great! How about some details, so we can enjoy vicariouslyi? What did you watch? How many people did you host? What kind of screen and sound did you use? How did the audience respond? Did you take any pics?

It was a spontanious showing as the UPS guy delivered the projector during dinner and I was hosting my nephew and his fiance (both on leave from Iraq), my wife and another nephew (small group).

The sound system was the one shown on page one of my posting. I did take a pic, however I took the pic during set up while there was a dark scene on. (Sorry for the poor quality).

The movie of the evening was Kung Fu Hustle (potentially the greatest movie ever made).

BBQ - Your set-up is excellent! I especially like your open, roomy deck! How large is your screen? I plan to switch to steel pipes as well and (hopefully) alleviate the middle bungees on mine.

Right - I'd forgotten about your cool equipment stands.

"Kung Fu Hustle" is one of the most splendidly, absurdly hilarious films ever made. Still, I think "Shaolin Soccer" may be a hair better. It's a toss-up, and either way I'm sure your nephew and niece had a fabulous time. Good choice!

That first show is a magical time, isn't it?

That DJ Troy,

The screen is 10 x 16. Made from black and white trampoline. I think I will add one more support pole in the center for additional support. The frame weighs about 125 pounds. 2 guys handle it easy, 3 guys even easier. I use a bike lift and hooks and keep it in the pole barn.

Great job!  I like your design.- simple and elegant.   And the steel pipe is most impressive.
