Just getting started and would like to know what the best mid range pj is between the HD1000u and the new HC5000.

You're comparing a $900 projector with a $4500 projector.

The 5000 is obviously better, but they're in completely different classes.

if you truly are "just getting started" and from your post, i believe you are, then I suggest you get the $900 HD1000U to cut your teeth on.

dont blow 4 grand on something you dont know much about, thats never a good idea.

if this is your first projector, you will be absolutely blown away by the Mits HD1000U

Actually I'm am not considering the more expensive projector. Was wondering if Mits. had a model in between and if it was worth the extra expense of the 1000.

Thanks for your help

Mits offers the HC3000 which can be had for around $1500.

Yes have read the reviews on the HC3000. Was confused though as the reviews are from last year. Has there been an upgrade or new model of the HC 3000?

There's the 3100 but it is not offered in the US.

I'm a very happy 3000 owner.

For an official answer look at the mitsu website before some tells you mitsu's new 2920 x 2080p projector model number HC20K for only $2,000

Thanks for your help. I am not only new to PJ's but usually just lurk on boards. Not used to posting.

My room is light controled 13 x 23 with 9' ceiling. I have it wired to mount from the ceiling. I do want the DLP and the Mits seems to be the best value but concerned about the lack of lense shift. Am I reading do much and getting confused?

Is there a big difference between the 1000 and the 3000? The 3000 is in my budget but would always prefer to spend less if there isn't much of a difference.

Thanks again for your help.

If you can place the projector properly then lens shift won't be an issue for you. With those dimensions, assuming you don't have any limitations on where you mount it, you shouldn't have a problem. Use an online calculator to make sure, though.

You can use the throw distance calculator on Mitsubishi's site.
