The Christie LW555 is a popular choice. It's a little brighter than you need, but it's a great PJ. I think they run about $3300 refurbished:

I have a Panasonic PT-DW5000U Projector I picked up off of BigScreenThrills on this forum that's up for sale. It's 4500 lumens, two bulbs and watercooled. I'll make you a deal on it. Review here:

I think if I were buying a new projector today I'd consider the new Epson 4855WU. 1080p and 4000 lumens for $2999.

A few months old but goodness, those are insanely expensive, try on Optoma 1060P if you want 4500 lumens, 1080p image and want to get a cheaper model with the same output. The 1060P is being phased out and replaced by the new version, the EH500, I have seen it for as little $999 brand new this year. You can also just pick up the new EH500 for $1500 and you will have 3d as well.

I wouldn't spring for those behemoths unless I was doing a permanent install or needed the lens configurations but to each his own.

I 2nd the optoma th1060 and EH500... good choice. I havent experienced it personally but it seems to be getting some good reviews. If you want LCD it will cost you a little more.

Based on his sig, I assumed for rental use which means a larger budget is probably available for a more commercial-type unit. Low cost DLPs get very bright, but I see rainbows on them myself so I try to avoid them.
