The Optoma HD8200 is a much better projector than the 1070 for 2D, no 3D. Of course used is always a gamble, manufacturer refurbished should be fine. Better blacks as it has an iris,DC3 chip, large lens shift both horizontal and vertical, better optics, RGBRGB color wheel and FI. It did have some reliability issues when it first came out. Of course this is in a good room, if the room is less than ideal than the 1070 might work better for you
