What do you guys think is the best sports projector. I have a JVC projector and I used that like a fine wine, but I been thinking about a secondary 1080p projector that is nice and bright for sports. I have a couple of 720p projectors but sports upscaled to 1080p looks much better.

The panny is a good options, but the other 3 will most likely not calibrate as well as a home theater projector

If buying a projector only for Sports, you want DLP.

The Benq w1200 would be the best "sports" projector if you like FI, but are not wanting to do gaming on it. The Optoma hd33 if you want the best at sports and gaming.

The above only apply if they are bright enough for you, if not bright enough, then maybe the Optoma th1060. The Optoma th1060p is ok and super bright, but it will have a lot of RBE effect to even some that don't normally see RBE on a DLP.

Personally, the Benq w1200 is the best cheap option, it is DLP and has Frame Interpolation, and it is pretty bright, should be bright enough unless you just completely turn the lights on.

I was actually going to get the Benq w1200 about 2 years ago. I think I may spend up to $1500 for one. Looking at the w6000 too. Don't know when I'm going to add one, maybe a month or two. Adding a Lumagen, so I will be able tyo calibrate it pretty good. I want a good picture still with at least 1000 lumens calibrated. Will be using a Da Lite screen but my JVC will be mounted closer to eye level.

as you already have a JVC which I believe is excellent for home theater purpose meanwhile you didn't mentioned you need it for home theater purpose, I just recommend based on your requirement - nice & bright for sports, however it's all depends how much ambient light you're dealing with when you watching sports

Yeah, I want the best image and it has to be bright. Really bright and a lack luster picture will not be something that I would want. Having so many projectors in the past three years, I'm still searching for a long lamp life, bright projector with good HD quality.

Have you looked at the Epson 5010/6010's? Plenty bright even with some ambient light in ECO mode which is suppose to offer 5000 hrs bulb life. Great 3D/2D, but maybe some gaming lag if that's an issue.

Haven't looked at them, I'm still deciding tho, nothing has jumped out at me yet
