I am looking to replace my 6 year old, blue polarizer zapped, Sanyo PLV-Z5.
The usage for the projector will be primarily 2D movies, gaming, and some 3D movies.
After countless hours of research (thanks to everyone on this forum), I have narrowed the field down to a handful of choices:
BenQ W1070 ($895) no glasses
Epson Home Cinema 3020 2x glasses ($1599)
Epson Home Cinema 5010 (Epson refurbished) no glasses ($1599)
I eliminated the Optoma HD25 line due to image noise concerns…
It will reside in a dedicated 15" long by 8" tall room, with completely controllable ambient light.
The current screen is light gray and 106", and it is 12 feet from the projector which is ceiling mounted on 8ft ceiling.
I have no strong opinion on DLP vs LCD. The RBE doesn't bother me on newer projectors, and I am assuming that newer LCDs won't have as much blurring in fast motion. The Sanyo is my first and only projector.
I am looking for thoughts and opinions on my options, projectors I might have missed, mistakes I have made, justification for the additional $700
to jump up to the Epsons, etc…
(Sorry this was so long to read, hopefully you were able to take a nap between paragraphs.)
TLDR: Is the W1070 a good choice for a dedicated room?
