Church Service AND outdoor movie night on a budget...Benq SH910?
I am trying to find the best projector for my (small) church to use during services and also to host neighborhood outdoor movie nights.
When we discussed budget, I told them $700 or so for the projector, because I had in mind the fact that the Benq W1070 or the HD25/HD131x or the Epson 2000 would work well enough in both situations. Previously we were using an Infocus X2 for the church service until the bulb died, so obvously our requirements for that part are not huge and any of those projectors would be a vast improvement over that.
With my default choices in mind, I began to look at other possibilities, thinking that in this case: 1)the brighter the better and 2) I would like to wow them with the outdoor movie(which we had never done before) so I would like to stick with 1080p.
Two seemingly brighter, if not better, choices I found were the Infocus IN3138HD and the Benq SH910. I am wondering if the extra lumens would make a noticeable difference, if the picture or text quality would be better or worse than the default choices, and if anyone has a feel for whether the difference would be worth the extra money.
B&H photo currently has the SH910 priced at $1100 ( a few hundred dollars less than any where else i could find for either of the 2 higher lumen projectors).
Does anyone have a recommendation from either the default or the brighter choices or a totally different choice I should be considering.
I probably will be donating, out of my own pocket, any price difference over the $700 figure we had originally voted on, so I would like to know that it would be worth it. Thanks for any help you can give me with this.
