If you don't have a projector in your house get one! I have one in my office and I will be adding another to my basement after the remodel. I only buy Epson primarily for their service and return policy. The Epson 5020 has some pretty impressive specs. 320,000:1 contract ratio. 2400 Lumens, which makes it basically a light canon. Horizontal and Vertical Lens shift and 5,000 hours of lamp life. And of course 3D. There is also a 5020e version which has wireless HDMI, which is nice if your concerned about running cable. If you cant afford the $2599.00 price tag check around to see if you can find an 8700UB. All its missing is the 3D.
