    I get lost in the sea of projectors. Can anyone help me decide?

    I'm hoping to get brighter than 1200 lumens.

    Better than 450:1 contrast (what does this mean anyway?)

    I want long lamp hours 2000 or more.

    I would like to stay under $1000

    I will only be feeding it S-Video.

    I would like to not have to take out a 2nd mortgage to replace the lamp (maybe there is no way of getting around this, why can't they make them with several halogen bulbs a person can buy from menards?)...

    Any and all thoughts appreciated. Thanks in advance everyone!

    Maybe a
    NEC VT470 2000 Lumen SVGA 800 x 600 Video Projector 3000 hours
    or a
    Optoma EzPro745 2300 Lumen XGA 1024x768 DLP Video Projector DVI Connection 5000 hours (too good to be true?)
