Considering these are 4 years old, I would say the technology has probably advanced pretty significantly, and the budget models of today probably far surpass the Infocus, especially with lamp lives closer to 3000 hours vs the 1000 of the Infocus.
So straight up with a light controlled room and a $3k budget, I bet you could get a nice projector set up.
For $400 (bulb) to $1k (for bulb, screen plus Iscan to improve video quality for infocus 355) I would guess you are better off dropping a few more bucks for a good budget projector like the X1 or Optoma H30 IF you want to get a FP instead of the Sony TV.
