So I got my optoma TW695UT-3D 3500 lumens today. Had to run for work so I didn't get much time to test and play with it. I went to my basement which is a pretty well lit walk out basement. I did two types of testing one with lights on and one with lights off (semi lit from daylight). I tested with playing some 720p videos from Matrix off youtube on my laptop. With lights off the display seemed ok, nothing spectacular (I'm used to LCD televisions). I couldn't make out finer detail and blacks seemed to be blending together. With all the lights on (worse cast scenario in a tradeshow), it was half viewable. I am debating whether I should have bought a projector with higher lumen output (not sure if they cost alot more than $400). I will do more testing later tonight. I am going to see how it performs outside at a church. I did like how close the projector had to be to the wall to display a picture.
