I was looking at the same projectors. I ended up opting for the 55es because i game quite a bit (cod). The only problem is trying to get one. I ordered before christmas and have been told mid Feb.-March. I am coming from an epson 1080ub pro. I would go for the 55 or the epson for sure since you'll be watching alot of sports. If you will ever play a first person shooter then you will want the sony, It seems to be the best overall pj.
