Hi guys,
I done alot of reading on this forum but I'm still confused about what is best (or close) for me. This is what I have rite now: jvc rs40, firehawks g3 130" ,white wall white ceiling, throw 17'.and like to upgrade my projector. Should I do two projectors system one for watching sports, TV with lights on and one for watching movie and such?
Here what I have in mind:
1. Jvc 4810 or Sony 50 and Epson 5020 or sharp 3000?
2. Or just get one projector and be done with it.
I have about 10k budget.
Thank you gents, appreciate your helps.

If you get one of the sony or jvc projectors and a benq w7000 (which many say is the great for tv and sports and is very bright and great 3d) you would have an incredible setup.

if you don't care about gaming, I would do the JVC for movies and the w7000 which is $1500 for tv and sports. Or wait until cedia and check out the the w7500. Or even get the W1070 (but the throw is very short) for $1000.

If you do want to play video games, then get the Sony and the benq. In either case, you could wait a month or so and see what new projectors are coming out since you may find a better all in one solution.

my ultimate plan is to get a good projector for movies(so that could be the jvc or sony) and get a lampless led/laser/hybrid projector for casual use.

I don't know if I see enough improvement with your second projector choices to justify a dual setup. the sony or jvc are reasonably bright. I have the x35 and can use it with my seating lights on full. the sony is supposedly even brighter, and better with motion handling/input lag. I think if you went with the sony there really wouldn't be a reason to grab the Epson or sharp

the other thing you could maybe do is just add one projector to your rs40 now, and save the money for a future upgrade.

ie, i'm assuming you'd want something better for sports and a bright room. so buy a bright DLP now. keep using the rs40 for movies. you can always upgrade the rs40 if you want to later.
