Elite is fine. If you are in a dark room and can use a fixed frame screen, then the Elite white screens or the Silver Ticket screens (Amazon) do a really good job for the money.\n\nSony & JVC are close. I would get the 285 in a second if it was in budget. It's a heck of a deal, especially if you can see it before you buy it. I wouldn't be willing to lay down money on the Sony or JVC being 'better'. They are both excellent.
