If you liked the look of the PE7700, then the W1300 will give you a look very similar to that. The 8350 is nice, but won't really be as bright as the W1300, and won't really measure up.
I haven't looked at reviews, or a thread on the W1300, but you should look for more reviews. I expect the W1300 would compare similarly to the W1070, but a bit more money, different throw distance, and much different lens offset/lens shift. Be sure the lens shift will work with your setup as the range appears to be between 120% and 148% of image height. So, 10" to 24" above a 50" tall screen if I'm reading things correctly. That's way above the screen. Good for some, lousy for others. The 8350 has way more lens shift range. Like -40% to +40% (anywhere from 20" above the top of the image to 20" below the bottom of the image on a 50" tall image!).
So, just measure several times on this to be sure things will work for you.
