Hi guys, i've been doing some research on a projector for my roommate (he is buying a house and is overseas atm), and it seems that pretty much anything shy of the Epson 9700UB or JVC HD250 / RS40, etc, is going to have pretty crap black levels.
We watch a lot of dark movies, action movies, stuff like aliens, sci fi movies/tv shows, etc. So black levels are very important.
Ive found the JVC online for well under $3k, but JVC does not authorize internet sales so anything you buy has no warranty.
Ive read the Epson 9700 UB is a good projector with almost as good blacks as the JVC, but i can't seem to find it online from a reputable website
I was hoping someone could potentially suggest some other projectors that might fits his needs?
Would *really* like to keep it under 3k, preferrably in the 2200-2500 range
Good (doesnt have to be awesome, but not crap) black levels
Not horrible lag for gaming
