I found an open box JVC DLA-X7 with a new lamp and full warranty that was used as a demo for $2995. I've been out of the loop on new projectors for quite a few years now, so I'm looking for opinions as to whether this is a good deal. I know that these came out in 2011, so I was wondering if I'd be better off going for this, or a newer model in the $3000-$3500 range (max budget), and if so, what models should I be looking at. I don't care about 3D, but I want inky blacks for movies and good brightness for sports. I have a fully light controlled room and the distance from projector to screen is 16.5'.
Thanks in advance for any advice:)
