The only 1080p - 3D projectors in that price range are the Acer9500bd, the Optoma hd33/hd3300 (hd3300 is slighty brighter but same projector), and the Epson 3010.
Between these three choices, you can eliminate the 9500bd due to the 4x color wheel. That leaves the Optoma hd33 vs. the Epson 3010. Epson has the better customer service and warranty, but the Optoma has the rich DLP look. If it were me, I'd take the Optoma hd33, but I'd do more research on it first. The Epson 3010 is brighter if 3D brightness is your main concern.'
I like DLP better for gaming and 3D and the pixel fill is much higher producing a more punchy and film-like image, both at the same time.
