Hello

Im looking for a fairly cheap projector to use mainly for gaming, both from PC and Xbox.
My first choice would be Benq W1070 but that one is too expensive for me here in Sweden, I might find a used one tho..

Anyway if im looking to buying a new projector, what would be the best choice?
720p
~3meters

Im interested in Benq W700+, is it a good choice?
Or maybe Epson TW480/550?
There's also this new Optoma H100 but I find no reviews

You might also consider the Viewsonic PJD7820HD. It is bright and has very low lag times and is cheaper than the W1070
its 1080p, as well

Review here:

If you only care about 720p, you might look at the Optoma GT750 or GT720 - both carry low/zero lag times and were designed specifically for gaming. They're a year or two old so you should be able to find one pretty cheap.

I have the H5360 (720p120) and the ViewSonic PJD7820HD (1080p60). Both are good gaming projectors. I tried 3D gaming on the H5360 and it was pretty incredible (esp Trine 2) but it's not something I would do frequently (I'd imagine the PJD7820HD is even better). I'd be happy to answer any questions.
