    Guys, I would appreciate some help choosing which pj to buy.

    I used to work in a computer shop so I can get very good prices and I can pay over a period of six to ten months without any real effort if the projector is slightly more expensive.

    The problem is that being a computer shop I can only choose business or presentation models and only a few consumer division ones. What I mean by this is that I cannot get any Panasonic (ae500), sanyo (Z2), Philips or infocus projectors.

    I have to choose between Optoma, benq, Epson, HP and sony.

    Sony is really ruled out because I have a damaged HS1 and at the price sony is asking to have it fixed I might as well buy a new one. The HS1 is a 4.3 lcd projector with native 800x600, 700 ansi and a cr of about 450.

    I was thinking about the benq 6100 but unfortunately the throw range is very long, and I could never make it work with the screen that I have, the 6200 will do, but it´s much more expensive and 4:3.

    I have been thinking about the Epson TW10H (home 10+) a revised tw10 but with 1300 lumens and 800:1 contrast ratio. It is in native 16:9 (854x480) and the throw is very good, I can even rearrange my living room.

    Even the budget Epson is a definite upgrade, it doubles the contrast ratio and the brightness of the sony and has the same resolution but in native 16:9.

    What do you think, the benq, the Epson or am I forgetting anything better?
    Is 854x480 good for hcpc?

    Thanks for the help
