Very good info, thanks guys. That picture doesn't look horrible with all the light on at all. One of the main reasons I started looking at front projectors was a daily deal I got in my email for the BenQ 1070. Some good reviews but I really like the idea of an LED source. I bought a rear projection Sony Lcd right when it was bleeding edge and spending $4500 only to have to replace the bulb at $100 a pop was getting stupid. Then, around half life of the bulb, it would start looking all dull. I would much rather have an LED type and not have a noisy fan too because I think I would have to mount it almost directly over my head. I may have to do some convincing for the wife to be fully on board.
I've been searching for a 1080P native resolution LED projector with 3d with a decent lumen rating but I'm not finding much so far. I will keep researching.
