Just built a media room in my basement and am now at the point where I have to make a decision on my projector. The room is 16' wide x 28' deep with just over 8' ceilings and will have a 120" screen. I anticipate using it for 50% movies and 50% sports/tv. The room is also 100% light controlled, but one of my main concerns is using it as an entertainment area where there will be some amount of lights on. And 3D is pretty much a non-factor, not overly concerned if it has it or not.
Trying to keep the budget around $3-4k for the projector as all other costs have spiraled beyond initial estimates, gotta love NY!, figured I can always upgrade in the future when the budget allows. Doing my research I've read great things about the Epson Pro Cinema 6010 and it seems to fit all my criteria (budget, brightness, great reviews). But my a/v guy has presented the opportunity to buy a used JVC DLA-HD10K (2-3 yrs old, not sure how many hours). The cost is a wash between the 2 (including buying a warranty for the JVC) so I guess it comes down to which projector will perform better for my needs.
Looking for any feedback I can get as my knowledge in projectors is pretty much non-existent. For all I know this could be a matter of one be an overwhelming choice over the other, or a matter of preference. Thanks in advance for any help.
