Is the Epson TW5910 the only sub £1000 PJ for me?

Hi all

I'm looking for a 3D projector to replace my old Optoma HD800x which is quite generous with its throw specs.

The project sits approx. 5.3m from the screen (which is around 105" IIRC).

I've been looking at the calculators and it seems that the Benq W1070 and the Optoma HD25/HD33 are no use to me at the distances involved.

It looks like the Epson just squeezes in.

Anyone know any other options I might have overlooked?

FWIW when I got my first projector a good few years ago a combination of a small(ish) space for the screen, high ceiling and long throw restricted my choice to 1 in my price range.
It's not something you worry about after the fact as long as the machine has the features you want and you've done your sums on the throw/screen size.
