Optoma's the latest to give your bank account a break, announcing its HD70 DLP projector, which'll give you native 720p resolution, 4,000:1 contrast ratio, and 1,000 ANSI lumens at a $1,000 list price. What's more, the HD70 comes equipped with an HDMI port for all your newfangled devices in addition to the standard compliment of component, composite, S-Video and VGA inputs. Of course, you'll also have to budget for a replacement bulb sometime down the line which, unfortunately, still don't come cheap, though Optoma promises a reasonable 3,000 hours of use in standard mode. And if you looking for ways to save even more money, you could always build your own screen.
