What inexpensive 720p pj is best for me? HC1600? HD65? Something else?




I bought a crappy TDP ET10U projector and just returned it because it lags.

Now I want a 720p projector. Realistically, it will be used about 1/3 each for:
-movies (DVDs, blu-ray soon, and 720p iTunes content off my MacBook)
-gaming (mostly SNES, PS2, and PC and I'd run the PC games at native res)
-computer monitor

The main factors for me are:
1) lag/motion delay/latency/whatever - no matter how stunning the picture is, if there's noticeable lag it will ruin it for me
2) sharpness/color/contrast
3) brightness and noise

I've been looking at the HC1600 and HD65 and HATING myself for not getting the X9 while it was $600).

Any thoughts on how these would perform?

Any other projector suggestions or thoughts/input?

I'm wanting to spend between 500 and 750 dollars.

Please please please help... I'm new to projectors and so lost as to what to do. Thanks in advance!!
If you want the best get the X9. if you cant afford it get the HD65
