So glad to see the site back up!  I can't wait to fire up the driveway theater again!

Last summer I had the opportunity to use a BenQ SH910 for my backyard theater experience.  It actually belonged to a  club I was in but am no longer involved with.  I am now wanting to purchase my own projector but am a bit torn on which one to buy.

The BenQ was more of a "presentation style" projector but was super bright which came in handy towards late summer when the days were long and it seemed like forever before it was dark enough to start watching movies.

I really liked the BenQ SH910 but was wondering if someone could recommend another projector with similar brightness levels but more oriented for movie viewing.

My budget is around $1200-1500

Any suggestions?

 Hello Waverz,

      Check out the Dell web site they have a new 4300 lum projector that is reasonable priced. Use a Dell 1610HD myself and love it

I've had a few people mention this unit.  I am probably going to go with it but where are you finding them for under $1k?
