Holy cow, Bob! That's some list! I should talk about the ones I had too. 😊Runco LS10 , the brightest with virtually perfect color and a very good dynamic contrast feature.
Sim2 HT5000E, best pure picture but without dynamic contrast feature.
Barco Cine9 stack (stacking two projectors), great image but required constant fiddling to maintain.
Sim2 MICO 50, not bright enough.
Epson LS10000, calm consistent image over several years.
Sim2 Nero 3D-2, great image but could be brighter.
Barco Cine9, great image but not bright enough.
JVC RS640, best blacks but otherwise not the best image.
Sim2 C3X, bright, would be much higher except for being 720p
BenQ LK970, great for sports but not daily viewer.
