If 3D is really important for you, then you'll want to look at a bulb projector. The good news is that there are plenty of "home video" bulb projectors that will do what you need in reasonable form factors and still be pretty portable and able to do a presentation even better than a small LED model. The good news is that the bulb projectors will have superior optics and resolution (1080P vs. diamond pixel 720P). For $1k you can buy a projector and ensure it'll have bulbs for a solid 10,000+ hours or more.
700 lumens in a bright conference room is going to have you projecting maybe a 40-50" image that's all washed out with the projector whining away on max brightness. For comparison, your average projector you find in a conference room is going to probably be 3000+ lumens.
Truly appreciate the help, now what would be a good recommendation for a bulb projector? I've seen home theater projectors from Epson ranging from anywhere from $400 to $800, also Optoma brand, BenQ, Viewsonic, these are DLP projectors since I'm no expert on this topic I have learned that lumens is extremely important, aspect ratio, resolution format of WUXGA, WXGA is becoming the standard and also, 1080pm or 720p, also, throw distance, which I have no clue about, lol. According to some reviews many users like the 720p projectors, some can't tell the difference in quality of picture, personally I can't comment or know which I would be satisfied with. All I know is that I need something for business use, home use and travel with also a projector that would well packed with features and something that I won't need to replace like next year. So the projector needs to be well balanced out, wireless too. I maybe asking for too much for my price point but I'm sure that something is out there that would serve my needs. I came to this site due to a recommendation from a Amazon customer who rated about AVS forum and how he got the best help for his projector purchase. These what I came up with, however, if you guys could recommend something that would be great too! Thanks again! So far I like the Optoman and the Epson, however, other brands seem to be good too.. Honestly, I'm all confused and I don't know which route to take so I need HELP! Thought that an LED Projector would work best but I guess not!
