Holy cow.. that's certainly opening a potential explosion of responses.
First, take some time to look through the posts that are on the top of the page. Pay attention to the ones that focus upon technical data instead of personal opinions. Once you have an idea as to what the basic offerings are, move down and look at the discussions in the rest of this forum.
Asking what's best is most likely just going to end up in a free for all discussion that is already well covered by several posts.
You also have to decide if that $3500 is for the projector alone, or the projector and screen (plus mounting).
I don't mean to sound non-helpful, of course, it's just that I believe that you should gain an idea of the basics before sifting through other's opinions. It will help you be happier with your final decision, instead of being upset that any one person could lead you astray.
