Since were talking about main living room TV's, I would say I replace it about every 5 years give or take a few. In 30 years I went from a Sharp 26" console, to a Motorola 45" RP TV that I replaced...

This had an MSRP of $3200 new, although discontinued some are still available. A brand new comparable projector with 3D can be had for $2000 to $2500. I would price this at around $1000 to $1500 if...

I don't believe they have a free trial period. I would still highly recommend them for 3D rentals and regular BR rentals as they are the retail versions and not the edited for rental versions that NF...

From your pictures it looks like you have two problems. Some minor convergences issue but it all looks out of focus. If it was only convergences issue the lines of each color still should be sharply...

The BenQ doesn't have enough zoom range to do the poor mans CIH. You don't have enough throw range for the Sony to do it without having a smaller Diag screen so I would stick with a 16:9 screen as...

The Mits HC7900Dw would fit perfectly as it has a lot of vertical off set plus a lot of lens shift in the wrong direction for most. I have seen some still around for $1.2k they were a steal at $799.

It is normal for 24 fps films, the 3D just makes it worse. Although the 1070 as triple flash 144 hz that claims to help it still is a problem for some. That's why a lot of people including me like...

Its called Keystone and there is an adjustment in the projector to eliminate it but its not recommended to use it as it degrades the picture because you no longer have 1 to 1 pixel mapping. One...

If it is an HD20 that was a very good entry level projector for its day. Fixing the room by blocking the light and painting it a dark flat color will do wonders for it. A brighter projector will help...

I take it you have a very limited ceiling height and that is hard to deal with the fixed off set projectors. The Epson 8345 is about the only projector with lens shift that will fit that's in your...

Manufacturer refurbished is generally a good buy, and I buy them all the time. Seller refurbished on the other hand just means they dusted it off and tested it, buy at your own risk.

I guess it would depend on the room you going to put it in. The 5010 has been discontinued for like 2 years now so if its only 4 months old it must have been a refurb. If you need the placement...

It depends on how much curve there is to the projector case, I would think something more like an inch thick would be sure to clear all parts of the case. But that is the general idea. Heck, you...

Its most likely on the bottom of the projector and might be covered by the ceiling mount. If the projector works check through the menus and it should give the model and serial# in an info screen.

Since you are limited by screen height a 220" screen is the max for a 16:9 screen. Most venues of this size require a commercial projector such as a Christi. Bottom line is around 6k used on EBay....

Just take a look through EBay and see what comparable projectors are sold for. Not the asking price because most people ask way too much for their used projectors.

$700 for a 5010 that you can see it working before purchase is a good buy. Look for dust blobs, convergence problems and burnt polarizers. Buying blind is always a gamble and if you can't afford to...

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
