"DLP" in title would be nice. Not that there's anything wrong with that for most folks, just a no go in my house. Edit: because of sensitivity to the rainbow effect.

I have this projector and love it. The picture is extremely bright and clear with my FireTV (or chromecast, bluray player, laptop, etc.). I've taken it to my parents' place and used just a white sheet over the fireplace mantle and shocked the entire family with a great picture for Big Hero 6.

I had a problem with it overheating and contacted Benq for support. They fixed the fan which wasn't running and shipped it back to me for free. It took around a week, which was slower than I was hoping for but not really that bad.

The only thing that was bugging me was that the projector emits a loud beep every time it starts up and shuts down. I solved this by plugging a generic 3.5mm plug into the audio out headphone jack. I'm using a 2.5mm to 3.5mm converter I had lying around so there isn't even a cord hanging down for it.

Just curious, why does the DLP make it a no go for you? I'm not really all that up on my projector differences, but I know the quality seems to be great in my house so I'm assuming it's some other reason.

Not going to answer for him but DLP can cause rainbow effects. Some people are very sensitive to that and see it all the time. Has to do with the color wheel. One alternative to DLP is the Epson LCD which doesn't have the rainbow problem.

Yeah rainbow effect is bothersome to SO. Sorry I didn't specify in my first post. I don't see them at all and wouldn't believe it but her accuracy in spotting DLP projectors is 100%.

I ultimately went with the Epson 2045 with $200 Best Buy gift card last week. The bulbs are $59 (Amazon and B&H) or $79 (direct from Epson) with Eco mode rated at 7500 hours. I have never seen bulb cost that cheap for a OEM replacement and that was the primary reason why I went with this projector.
I once had a bulb go out after 1000 hours (rated for 3000) on a Sharp XGA projector and the replacements were over $300. I love projectors but it's ridiculous to pay that much for a bulb. I won't even look at a projector if the bulb cost is over $150. It sucks that I have to limit my choices but until other projector OEM's bring their cost down I won't play that game. It's the same reason why I don't buy inkjet printers.

I bought this BenQ HT1075 at a local electronics store, and it is definitely the best projector in its price range.

Love its realistic, life like colors right out of the box, and after a little proper adjustments in hue, gain and saturation it only gets better! There is a projector review site which gives the best settings and once set, there just isn't any looking back at other projectors in this category. Here is what I told someone I knew about this projector...

DLP is know for rainbow artifacts. Clearly this model, at least in the under $1500 class, shows hardly any, unless you look for them. A great analogy is within our eyes there are these "floaters". We are so used to ignoring them, but if we try to look at them, they are there. Technically they (rainbow artifacts) are more present in whites on the screen when they have dark colors to contrast against. Subtitles. Netflix's or is it Hulu's rotating circle telling you it is busy. This doesn't show them unless you really stop to focus on them. The colors are amazing for this projector. I tried the epson 2030 twice, and although there were moments of rich blacks, it left me feeling that the Epson 2030 was flat, dull and dim. There was another model I thought about getting, the BenQ HC1200. But the more I read, the more I realized that to have a "great" all around projector Theater and data, you have to sacrifice some things that the one type, theater or data, projectors have nailed down to a science. I am being completely honest when I say, I used to go to the movies twice a week, but they are so damn expensive nowadays. I am not trying to say this projector is better than a movie at an expensive theater, not even. But, I couldn't help notice how grainy the picture was when I saw Jurassic World at the theater. I work within the industry and I have always been critical over the use of darker scenes to make CGI blend and hide its' "defects."

Another advantage this projector has (being a single chip DLP) over the 3 LCD projectors, is that it tends to project a sharper picture. That is what I mean by dull and flat with the Epson. Also, when you replace the bulb, unlike other projectors, the DLP will revert back to the bright and clear picture you started with, not so with the Epson, which retains its' dull dimness over time.

It helps to have a Passcode set up to ask for it on startup, not just for the theft issue, but also, if accidentally powered on, unless you enter it within a certain time period, it will automatically shut down. That's what I used it for.

This projector is half the size (dimensions and weight) of the Epson 3020 and it has a headphones jack. I'm very pleased to have such a great picture without the size and the bulk of the Epson 3020 and the Epson 3020 did not have an audio out via jack or RCA plugs.
