Your RBE issues might mainly be because you are watching it too bright?
Even if someone isn't super RBE sensitive, a brighter image will show rainbows to many.

A refurb'd Epson 6500ub if they are still around (maybe not though), otherwise you could the Epson 8350. There are not a lot of good LCD choices around $1000 other than those two. There are some ok 720p Epson LCD's, but I am not that confident that their contrast is that great.

I would look for a used JVC RS1 on either eBay or videogon.com. It will give you the best black level and pq for under $1k you can find plus replacement lamps aren't that expensive.

Buy an ND Filter, you can get one for under $50. That will reduce the brightness.

100" screen wtih 1.3 gain is going to be way too bright in 2d for the Optoma hd33, you're probably watching the thing at like 30 fL to 40 fL, almost everyone is going to see RBE at that brightness. That is just way too bright. You need to cut the brightness down by 40% to 50% with an ND filter. Even after you put the ND filter on, you may need to wait until the lamp wears in a little before the RBE goes away enough.
