I have been toying around with my home projector (Sanyo Z4, only 1000 lumens) for room rentals for video games and I Have been very pleased with the results. Last night I watched I Am Legend on Blu-ray and thought the picture looked pretty damn good.
The negative of this particular projector is that it only has about a 32' throw, so it would have to be ceiling mounted. But it and its successor Z5 at 1080p can be had for no more than $1200.
Spec. wise (lumens), it pales in comparison with what some of you have bought. Anyone care to share what their thought process was in choosing the projector you went with? Throw? Size of screen? Did you demo any in your rooms first before buying?
My screens are only about 22-24' in width. Maybe that is the difference.
