Exclamation Price match deal on Epson 3020 vs Other Projectors (Advice needed)

Hey I just pulled off a price match to get the Epson 3020 for $539.99. I am looking for a 1080p projector, not sure whether I would prefer DLP or LCD, no more than ~$600.
I can mount up to 13 feet away and plan on getting a 100 inch screen.
The other projectors I have been considering are the Optoma HD142x, the Optoma HD26 and the BenQ 1075 .
Is it worth spending $30-60 getting any of these three projectors over the Epson 3020 deal I got, even though it is normally listed at ~$1200?

Could you please share where did you pick 3020 from?

Sent from a handheld device. Some typos might creep in.

From home depot/best buy. Advice by any chance? Is it a better idea to return the 3020 and get a more expensive (because of the deal) BenQ 1075 or Optoma 142x ?

I'm making my baby steps into projector world. So commenting on something that I haven't experienced myself won't make much sense.

A couple of weeks back I picked up Epson 3020 for $800 (new) from bestbuy. So I think $540 for 3020 would be one of the best deals available these days on any mid level projector category.

Based on online reviews, I made my purchase decision only. I know that DLP produces better blacks than LCD, still I went ahead with 3020. All I can say, I'm impressed with the image quality.

Again, experts say 1075 (1070+) or 142x are entry level PJs whereas 3020 is a mid level PJ. Hope that makes sense.

BTW, current price in bestbuy is showing $1350.

Thanks for the input. It may just be in my local area.
