http://www.projectorcentral.com/infocus_IN1126_portable_projector_review.htm a good review, and their list, http://www.projectorcentral.com/portable-computer-projectors.htm
I'd be hesitant to buy a refurb from Epson atm. Their qc has been a little lacking, and there is a good chance you might not get a good unit. Is it worth $300 less? I don't think I would chance it. Better to buy new so if you have any issues, they'll be taken care of.
I don't think you'll get any guarantees on power supply reliabilities from any pj. For suggestions in the $1k area, 3d/dlp benq 1070, 2d/lcd epson 8350, maybe the 3d/dlp optoma hd25. Around $800 is the 3d ready/dlp viewsonic pro8200. About the best in it's price range is the Benq if it works for your throw distance. Decent tv's for that price, but you won't get one with a 100" image, but you can look around in the flat screen threads for suggestions.
Glad you got it, "squared" away.
They ask so much, because some people just "have" to have a certain replacement, and will pay for it. Pretty similar units with the Benq and HD25, slight edge to the Benq for a bit of placement flexibility, and to Optoma for the 3d tech options. If replacement bulbs prices are the same, and the units are priced the same... One option the Optoma has, that might be a deciding factor, is the "Superwide" format it does. Maybe your interested in having that feature available.
For that much use, and if your concerned with lamp costs, then you might find an led works better. But generally in this price range, they will not be very good for blacks and normally are lower resolution at around 720p. Another thing to look into is "text detail" if your doing that kind of work with it on a computer, and possible eye strain with a dlp pj that may show "RBE" with bright objects. Of the ones you mentioned, the LG PA70G, may be about the best overall, but...
Some of the brighter pj's, Epson 5020, Benq 1070 have alot of light output. I watch normal broadcast tv quite a bit with ambient light in the room. Usually with a 60w bulb on about 15' from the screen. But as airscape said, daytime light bleeding onto the screen will really hurt the image, washing it out to some degree depending on the amount and the screen. Some screens are made to counter act it more than others. As an owner, your most likely aware, of just how much...
I wasn't suggesting that he hang a hammock from the ceiling, nor try to hang a Chevy truck from the ceiling joists, or ...... I was just pointing out that an option to mount to the drywall was feasible, with the correct equipment. I've never tried these toggle bolts, and I know everything on the internet is true, (I think Al Gore said it) From their website."Most national and local building codes require that grab bars be able to sustain 250 pounds of dead load force....
I understand, but some people ask for suggestions, and say their not interested in 3d thinking that will let them get a better pj for less price. Actually wasn't interested in 3d myself, but the last 5 movies I've bought have been 3D. Its usually narrowing down strengths/features/price that each can offer. A breakdown summary done by Coderguy is pretty helpful here http://www.avsforum.com/t/1391476/coderguys-top-projector-picks So you just want something "comparable", or...
I only suggested the Benq to show you the price to repair most likely wasn't worth it. As to the Sharp, Sharp XV-Z30000. http://www.projectorreviews.com/sharp/xv-z30000/summary.php A pretty good price/strengths breakdown for some recent pj's. http://www.avsforum.com/t/1391476/coderguys-top-projector-picks and a summary here, http://www.projectorreviews.com/1080p-projector/summary.php
