Hi, newbie here and trying to decide on a projector. Have narrowed down to the Epson 8700 or 9350 and looking for any advice - I haven't been able to find much on the 9350 but the dealer recommends it. I understand it's essentially an upgraded 8350 and from my reading of the specs it seem very similar to the 8700 (2000 lumen vs 1600 lumen but only 50000 contrast instead of 200000?) They both have a spare bulb but the 9350 has a 3 year warranty while the 8700 has 2 year.
The room will be large (approx 27' x 15') but expect to only use about 3/4 of the area for the actual "theater" area. I'm planning to use a fixed 106" screen, probably at the lower end (Elite Sable?) or possibly a 100" motorized.
There will be some light issues as there is a patio door and a largish window which I don't expect to be able to completely darken even with blackout curtains.
Any advice/thoughts greatly appreciated - this will be my first projector.
