JVC RS46, which may be a tad over budget, but will deliver the best image IMO.
The BenQ W7000 has lens shift and is DLP and is pretty solid with performance and build quality.
The Epson 5030 is a very solid performer, and well reviewed, but won't be as smooth with motion as the W7000 and won't deliver the contrast level of the JVC.
The JVC just has the best black levels of anything I've seen and better motion handling than the LCD models. DLP wins with the smoothness in motion, but doesn't match up to what the LCoS models offer in terms of black level performance.
