    I have narrowed it down to a few and here's some additional info.
    I watch HD programming, movies and sports.
    Need 'enough' real world lumens to watch sports in some ambient light on the weekends. But also want a PJ that excels/pops when the lights go down.

    PJ will be ~13.5' from screen and going for 106"-11" screen. Offset is not an issue as it can be mounted as low as 6" off floor or as high as 10'.

    I dislike the SDE on flat panel LCD's and love DLP's so I'm leaning towards a DLP but am truly open to anything.

    I had a Mitsubishi HC1500 for a few weeks and it was just awesome for its' price. Just wondering if their is something better 'for me' within a couple hundred dollars. I loved the 1500's brightness but could lose a little bit of lumens and still be happy....especially if I gained a little real world contrast.

    So my budget is ~$1300. The HC1500 was/is $900.

    Please bring on the reccomendations. this PJ will hold me until a good 1080P hits for ~$2K or less.
    Thanks!

    I was going to recommend the HC1500. I have the HD1000, that it replaced. What was the problem with the HC1500?

    Not sure, just ordered a replacement and am shipping this back when that arrives. The issue was a constant image flickering. I was told to reseat the lamp which I did and that didn't fix it.
    Otherwise it is just stellar, especially for the price.
    Just that I came from a 1080P DLP t.v. and am wondering if there is a 720P PJ that will come closer to hitting that sets PQ?(not that the 1500's is bad at all, just not quite as 'vivid/rich/crisp' as the t.v. was)

    That sounds like a fluke thing. I would wait to see the replacement one.

    Epson Home Cinema 1080. Youre within reach of it, hold out a little longer.
