For a while I have been considering which projector to buy.
I started to consider the BenQ W1070 but I think I may not be happy with a DLP projector again, so I have increased my budget and I am looking at alternatives.
I have been leaning towards the Epson TW-6100 (The equivalent US model is Epson 3020 I believe) - but I have been considering the Sony VPL-HW30ES too, even though that's going to be quite a stretch of my budget.
The room where I'm going to put the projector is a basement room which I can make completely dark if I want to. However the ceiling and walls are white, except for the wall where the projector is mounted (which is black/very dark grey). The floor is covered with a light grey carpet.
With my current setup I have usually had a little bit of ambient light in the room (like a few candles and a very dimmed lamp on - not so close to the screen though) - but this is primarily because I have been getting tired in my eyes if I sit in complete darkness, this could change with a new projector though.
My screen is 92" diagonal 16:9, it's a slightly grey screen (as far as I remember the screen is called Quality Screen Greyline).
Regarding 3D I don't know how much I will be using it - I think it would be really cool to have, but I'm unsure how much I'd be using it as I haven't had 3D in my home before. It may turn out that I think it's awesome and use it a lot, but it may also turn out that I don't use it so often - it's a bit hard to tell for me.
Which projector would you think I should choose between these two? Is the increased cost of the Sony worth it over the Epson? I live in Denmark and the price of the Sony is approximately (after a currency change to USD) 2800$ and the Epson is 1900$
Let me know if there are some details I have missed, I hope someone can help me a bit. Thanks in advance
