Noob building a backyard theater
 
I am looking to build a backyard theater.
Screen is not an issue.
Audio is not an issue.
But I am really hung up on the projector. I can maybe spend $600-$700 on a projector, but there are so many different opinions out there as to which is best it can sometimes be confusing. So what is the best bang for my buck?
The projector would be solely used as an outdoor projector, so it would not get the high volume use of a tv.

Also, I have the opportunity to purchase a lightly used Epson EX7220 Wireless projector for a little less than half its list price.

Pixel Number: 1,024,000 dots (1280 x 800) x 3
Color Brightness (Color Light Output): 3000 lumens1
White Brightness (White Light Output): 3000 lumens1
Aspect Ratio: 16:10
Native Resolution: 1280 x 800 (WXGA)

Thoughts, input, guidance?
Thanks

Nothing wrong with that projector. If 3D is something you want, then the 7220 isn't for you. My neighbor uses an EX7200 (previous version) and it looks/performs great. If it is a good deal, don't be afraid to get it.

NONONO.

I'm not a big resolution junkie but that native res is all wrong. Get a 1080P PJ.

1070 was $699 this weekend at several places.
