Which projectors should I look at?

I'm looking at either a 120" or 130" screen (give or take), at a distance of 14 to 18 feet (depends on which way I arrange the room). The room will be light controlled with no light from the outside, black ceiling, and dark matte walls.

I will have a 2.35 CIH screen, so I want a zoom memory function.

3D will be used and quality is important, but not priority.

There will be some gaming, but absolutely no first person shooters. Some 3rd person shooters maybe, and other action games (Think Uncharted, God of War, Last of Us, etc.), and role playing games. Again, quality is important, but gaming isn't the priority.

Exact budget is uncertain, but I can go over $3,000 if necessary (wasn't sure if I should put this here or the over $3,000 forum).

The only projectors with memory zoom in your price range are the JVC's and the Panasonic 7000/8000. Some of the older JVC's can be had for a little under 3k and the Panasonic's around 2.5K
