Organic panels, as the name implies, involve materials made from organic compounds. These will break down quicker over an extended period of time, and are not capable of the range of contrast and blacks that inorganic panels are capable of. This means that organic panels should last longer and provide a substantially improved image over the life of the projector. (Here's the first thread
I found in a quick search, although I remember reading elsewhere that organic panels were supposed to have 4 or 5 times the life span of inorganic...whether that marketing materials or AVS, I don't remember.)
If you're convinced you need 1080p, it's your money, but I strongly recommend you don't bother with the entry level organic LCD projectors. Reviews are pending for the Epson 6500 and Z3000, but having a TW4000 (Epson 6500), I can tell you that the image quality of the latest generation of LCD projectors (6500, Z3000, AE3000) is phenomonal. There's an AVS powerbuy in the +3K forum on the 6500 with a special AVS rebate that may be worth you looking into. (It should
be less than 3K after rebate, based on the low price you can get a Z3000 for already.)
If you are interested in DLP, make sure you get some hands on time with one, just in case you have RBE sensitivity, and also be sure that the placement of the projector works in your current setup.
