    any input is welcome

    I just got back from the Theater Xtreme store and I am putting this project back in gear.

    Gerald, I'll give you a few to check out, but you need to go to Projectorcentral.com and read some reviews. They also have a projector search function with your requirements.
    Epson Home 10+(cheapest bulb price)
    Mitsubishi HC3
    Sanyo Z1(lots of reports of short bulb life)
    Sanyo Z2(720p HD)
    Panasonic 500(720p HD)

    ProjectorCentral doesn't really have any products, they just link to dealers who sell projectors. I have a Sanyo Z3 which I purchased for 1795 and I like it. I haven't had any experience with customer service because I haven't had any issues.
