    I am considering these two projectors for my basement home theater system. BenQ 7220 or 8220

    Does anyone have any experience with these two projectors or have any other recommendations in the $1900-$2300 range for front projectors?

    Thanks...

    I was just looking again. It looks like the only difference is the 8220 has 2200 lumens and the 7220 has 2500 lumens. And the price difference is about $300.

    Is it really worth $1 per lumen? [​IMG]

    If I have it in my basement woulldn't 2200 lumens be good?

    i think 2200 hundred lumens would be enough, i know that the 8220 has 6 segment color wheel (RGBRGB), not sure about the 7220, i haven't looked at it much. I know a couple weeks ago, Tongry Nilsson (sorry if i misspelled) reviewed his 8220, and said it was pretty nice...

    Thanks Mike. I found that post. I don't know why I couldn't find it when I searched earlier.

    It was very informative. It does make my decision tougher, since I was leaning towards the 7220. He said the salesperson recommended the 8220 because it was better qaulity.
