Smallish room 135" screen with full ambient light control...
Bulb is like 95 bucks if you buy the bare bulb, I just changed one in my gt750 a couple months back.

But is the picture or contrast or features any better with a hd25e or benq 1070 than my hd33? I know I love the simplicity of the hd33 3d glasses....

Yeah the HD33 is bright enough and it has the best color wheel RGB/RGB. The Benq has an RGB/RGB wheel but I'd still prefer the optoma for it's better black level.

Thanks so much for the information!! Another question I have is it easier or better to replace it with a bare bulb vs. The replacement lamp? Any gotcha or best practices replacing either? Thanks again for the help!

easier to replace the replacement lamp because you take out a couple of screws pull out lamp, and put in new lamp. It costs like 2 to 3 times as much.

I got an osram bulb from ebay, pulled out the lamp assembly, unscrewed it and swapped the lamp, there was a video or something I think that showed how to do it, like 4 screws or so to take the cage apart. You just need to make sure you don't touch the bare bulb, only touch the base and use paper tower or something so your skin doesn't touch the glass and get oil on it.
