I have owned the following .95" DLP DMD projectors:
NuVision ProVu P2
If you're okay with the occasional clipped whites that a DI can cause the Planar PD8150 (Runco LS-5) is the best all around performer. If you're looking for something that has great contrast with a manual iris, from what I've seen, the Sharp 20k is by far the best. Out of all the projectors mentioned I like the Planar the best, the NuVision P2 second best, the Sharp 20k next, Marantz VP15S1 next, and then the Runco LS-1. All of those look and perform amazingly. Each one has a specific strength that you may like more than I do. If you want to know more about a specific one listed please let me know and I can go a bit more into detail.
