Projectors with Lens Shift under $1k

Any suggestions on projectors with lens shift for under $1k?

There are a couple, but they offer only a small amount of shift (w1070 has a little) so your placement is important to know first. There may also be a projector without shift, who's natural offset fits your needs perfectly. Do you already have a mounting spot/screen location in mind?

You can still get the Epson 8345 for $999 at Amazon.com and B&H.

Hmm, I don't know..that one's pretty shifty. Perhaps even the MOST shifty.
I didn't realize it was that cheap. Cool.

Yeah, the optics of the 8345/8350 are unreal. I think Epson dropped them from the 3020 just so that they could force people to buy the 5000 series. There are so few complaints about soft corners, or issues on that lens, and it's on a relatively 'cheap' projector, and has been for years, but darned if we can see that lens on a W1070, or other $1,000ish projector that is new and supports 3D.

Yeah, you want cheap and a great lens, then you have to give up 3D and DLP as options.
