Hey guys and gals, I’m in the market for my first projector. I’m looking to stay under $3000. It will be in a basement but it’s a walk-in so there is a fair amount of ambient light. Not quite sure where it will be placed but it is a large room with 9’ ceilings. I am flexible with placement. I’m going to try to go with a 120”+ screen.

Main uses (most to least important)

2D Movies
3D Movies

At the moment I’m looking at

Epson 5020
Panasonic AE8000
Sony HW30

Not stuck on these at all they just seemed to be some popular choices in my range.

One last thing that I’m interested in is 2.35.1 aspect ratio, mainly is it worth it. If anyone uses a 2.35.1 set up do you find that it makes a big difference and how does 16:9 content look on a 2.35.1 screen?

Thanks in advance for any help!
