I am planning to buy a budget Projector for just home entertainment (movies mainly)
Looked up 2 for a pretty fair price.
Epson EB-W02 -[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;] [/color]http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005VAZ71G/[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;] [/color]
Optoma HD700X - Optoma HD700X - http://www.amazon.co...uct/B00120SBOY/
Resolution - I wanted to have a HD projector and these 2 seems to fit the category. Though the Epson is actually WXGA which is actually a bit higher resolution than 720p (1280x800). Haven't seen too many of this resolution, does this make any difference?
Lumens - The Epson has a whopping 2600 lumens while the Optoma is 1300 only.
Connection - The Optoma has HDMI while the Epson doesnt have that. It seems it operates through the USB port. Not sure if thats a bad sign or not.
The Epson seems to be a newer model while the Optoma is from 2008, though it got pretty good reviews.
Is there anything else you see which makes a big difference? And generally which one do you think would be better?
If you have any other recommendation around this price I welcome those as well.
Thanks a lot for any advice in advance!
update: I just found this which looks good on paper and have an amazing contrast ratio> BenQ W700 - http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B005CYXO98/
