I require only that it's 1080P native and have HDMI input(s). Obviously I'm looking for the best price to quality ratio, with an emphasis on quality.


Does anybody have any brand suggestions and other things I should be looking for? I'm quite new to the projectors game.


Edit:

I should probably give an idea about the setup area. It's a dedicated theater room that will be pitch black and have a wall screen size of roughly 8x4ft. First seats will be roughly 10ft from the screen.

If it works in your room I would suggest Sharp DT-510 or Mits HC1500 for bang for the buck. You need to check the screen calculator and read O & M manuals for this info: www.projectorcentral.com/Mitsubishi-HC1500-projection-calculator-pro.htm


The DT-510 is not listed. Use the screen calc of the DT-500 or Marantz vp4001 for the DT-510.

I was looking at the Epson 1080UB (which I assume is the Epson EMP-TW1000) and I noticed the Epson EMP-TW2000 for only a slightly higher price. From what I can tell it's similarly priced (or cheaper) than the rest of the projectors on that list, but with decently superior specs (50000:1, 1600 lumens, etc.).


I'm a bit confused as (to me) it looks like far better value and quality than all of those projectors, at least from a specs point of view. Am I missing something, or would the Epson EMP-TW2000 be an excellent choice?

I believe the TW1000 is the Epson HC1080 and the TW2000 is the 1080UB. The Epson 1080UB seems to be near the top of the class for this price level.
