Thanks for the reply, so basically i'm mostly focused on movies, sports, and i'll fit in some gaming from the PS3 when I can. I've looked at most items and yeah the lens shift is concerning for me. I did some initial reading on the Acer 9500BD and there was some suggestions of hardware issues(i think you will see this with all hardware, no manufacturer is 100% perfect). I just want to make sure making a purchase for my first projector for a room that is 14 x22 is the right choice. Don't want to be dissapointed, but I basically want 1080P, 3D as an option, and picture quality. I read a lot about the Optoma out performing some of the top projectors, but I was not 100% sold on the unit.
