PJ: Epson EX7210:  2800 Lumens, Native display 1280 x 800.
Screen: Custom built 16' x 9' EMT/sign tarp screen attached to our privacy fence.

Works great most nights, but will probably upgrade to a Carl's Place screen next season or get a heavier tarp from my local sign shop.

Main Projector:  Epson Powerlite 81p 2000 lumens.
Backup projector:  United Entertainment projector 1200 Lumens

Screen was 7 X 9, but when renovations are complete this spring it will be 9 X 12

I have to say that the Epson projector is GREAT.  Plenty bright enough for my screen.  The United Entertainment Projector is very low resolution, though I don't know the spec off hand.  I would describe the image from that projector as rather dark.  Though it would work in a pinch, for less than $50.00 it is there as a backup should I blow the bulb on Epson.

Haven't heard too much about the LED projectors which I bought mostly because it was affordable. I have had no problems and it should last a long time (2000 lumens) Screen is 5' x 9'.

Thought Id throw my stuff in here.
PJ is an Epson Powerlight Home Cinema 725HD. Also still have the S1+ ($40 from ebay) as a backup and for traveling.
Main screen is a 16 x 9 billboard vinyl on a EMT frame. For quick setup I have a 12 x 9 piece of muslin that hangs on the back of the garage. Recently replaced my twin sheet with a 9 x 5 piece of BOC from Carls. This can go on a scaled down EMT frame or a very portable PVC setup thats like a volleyball net (2- 54 pieces that couple for each side, travels well with the S1+).
Sound is a Pyle PCA4 amp, Dayton 80 watt sub and various thrift store speakers (currently Aiwa 6 or Kenwood 4").
