Epson Pro Cinema 810 vs. BenQ PE-8720
I still have to go with my BenQ. It's not quite as bright (especially in brightest mode) but comparable brightness in best modes. It lacks all the settings and controls of the particularly flexible Epson, but like the Epson and other LCD projectors has vertical lens shift. The BenQ's 1.35:1 zoom lens can't match the range of the Epson's 2.1:1, but overall I still like the sharpness advantage of the BenQ. BenQ even has a 3 year warranty (but only 1st year replacement program). The BenQ is more expensive than the Epson, but not dramatically so. My BenQ is very filmlike, and of course has a DLP's much smaller pixel structure that allows me to sit closer. The Epson is good, the BenQ better.
