There is no top projector, they all have trade-offs.
The best two under 3K I feel are the Epson 5010 and JVC RS-45.
Get the Epson 5010 if you want 3D. However, both have gaming lag if you are into FPS gaming.
Otherwise, for a little more money the Sony hw30 has no gaming lag, does 3D ok, and is good at 2D. You can get quite a good image for even much less if you don't want 3D. The JVC isn't good at 3D, the Epson is better for that, but the JVC wins in 2D.
The JVC RS-45 or a B-Stock RS-40 is the best projector for 2D under $3k, unless you are super picky about motion and prefer a DLP or Sony hw30.
See a quick summary in my signature. The best bargain projector is the Mits hc4000 IMO.
