CRT Projectors are big. No even bigger. You may have read about CRT projectors or spoken to a friend that recommends the image quality because there are no visible pixels. What you may not know is that this projector is a beast and can be as large as a coffee table and weigh 150-200 pounds. Do you want a 200 lb object hanging over your head as you watch Ferris Bueller's Day Off? Too large to move, a nightmare to ceiling mount and imagine if you need to take it down to be repaired. The CRT projector is a relic of a projector that produces a good image at a huge price and huge size.
On the other end of the spectrum, DLP projectors and LCD projectors offer all of the benefits of great home theater video quality, and weighing in at a mere fraction of the CRT projectors. Ranging from 3-15 pounds, most DLP and LCD home theater projectors give you the option of setting them on a table, taking them with you to a friend's house, or doubling as your workplace presentation projector.
