I am looking to spend $1000-25000 to replace my aging 720p sharp projector with a 1080p 3D capable one. 2D movies are my primary concern, but I need to be able to hook up a linux server via HDMI to the projector. I do not have any preference between LED and DLP.
The projector is going to be mounted 17' to 18' from a 60" by 72" screen. 2D movies are my primary concern, but I also want to make sure that lag is low enough that we can use it for video games. I was looking at the numbers and 18' seems to be on the edge of the envelope for the BenQ. Will the BenQ reach the screen adequately?
Would you recommend a Panny 8000 two and a half times over the BenQ for this and what about a Epson 3020?
