So I've compared the specs of the two and didn't find any substantial differences but I'm a noob when it comes to projector technology.

The BenQ is on Amazon for $500 while the Optoma runs $759.

Is it name brand only driving the price difference or is the Optoma substantially better?

The 612 is not HD. Compare the gt750 to 710st as both are 720p.

This is the most important difference between the 2. The Optoma's GT750E:

Decodes all HDMI 1.4a mandatory 3D format and SBS format commonly used by Blu-ray 3D players, game consoles and set-top boxes.

For example, if you have a PS3 you will be able to display 3D content without using an adapter.

The BenQ will require separate adapter to display 3D content from a PS2 or stand alone bluray player. The adapter can cost several hundred dollars, the Optoma 3D-XL costs $330 on Amazon or the Viewsonic VP3D1 $242.

Thanks,

3D is not an issue for me. I don't enjoy theater 3D technology so I doubt any affordable home version will be around for quite some time.

The 720p differential might be an issue.
