I'm also looking at the HC7800, AE7000, and the RS45 to shoot on a 150" 2.35:1 scope screen in the bat cave media room in my new house. I do play games quite a bit and plan on watching 3-D whenever I can, so I have been leaning toward the HC7800 due to the inherent advantages it should provide in these applications - while still giving a great 2D picture.
As much as the AE7000 has tons of features I hate the thought of cleaning the filter all the time and getting dust blobs eventually. Plus it may be the worst PJ for gaming and 3D out of all three of these. Then we have the JVC which we know will be the best for 2D movies and HDTV watching as well as black levels, but it is huge machine!
There is just something about the DLP picture that I have grown to love against everything else out there. They don't have the best black levels and they aren't the brightest, but if the HC7800 is what I expect then I will be buying one very soon. If not, then I think the RS45 will end up being my choice.
