I'm lost trying to find a business projector, as everything I have looked for in the past has been for a home theater.


I need a short throw project, something in the range of .5 - .75 zoom ratio (preferably not fixed).


2,500 - 3,000 lumens


16:9 would be preferable, but I can go with 4:3, depending on the throw and price.


Finally, the kicker, looking for something sub $1500


Any suggestions for something that fits this?

I don't think there's a model out there that matches your creiteria.


The Epson 410W is short throw, 16x9, 2000 lumens, no zoom, MSRP $1,299. Depending on what's most important to you, this may be the best fit. Epson is known for under-stating their lumen output.

The Benq SP830 is 4x3, 3500 lumens, and the Street price is around your budget, but, it's not short throw. You'd need to use a mirror or wide angle adapter ( something like the Navitar .65x would be ideal, but expensive, .. I've had good luck with this Sony ...
http://www.amazon.com/Sony-VCLHG0758.../dp/B000063XWC but it's only a .8x wide adapter, which might not be short enough for your needs.)


There's also the Optoma 1691 that you could use with the wide angle adapter lens I mentioned.


Personally, I'd go with the Epson if you can live with slightly over 2000 lumens.

Definitely look into the BenQ MP771, it seems to fit what you need quite well as well! I have it myself, and use it all the time, it's great especially since I don't have the extra space in my TV room for a long throw, so it works perfectly! MP771 also seems to match all your criteria and also in the budget range!


The general specs are at the below link, I hope you will find this useful:
