What are your choices under 30K and why?

1. screen size 120" wide @ 16x9
2. 165" throw distance
3. 1920 x 1080 / 1080P
4. projecting onto a Screen Research CP2

DIRECTV HD Receiver HR10-250
Denon AVR4806 (HDMI transcoding all video sources)
DVD: none (yet)

Some known choices that are being strongly considered:
1. JVC HD2K @ $16K
2. Fujitsu LPF-D711 @ $17,500
3. Sony VPL-VW100 (Ruby) @$10K
4. JVC dla-hd11k @ $27k
5. Sony Qualia @ $27K

The MA Rack is in the front of the room so I will convert the HDMI to Optical DVI for the long in-ceiling run to the projector.

When you respond, please list the model that you like for this application, then why you like it and/or why you disagree with someone else.

Thanks everyone!

Sorry about the above post. My daughter was playing while I was glued to the TV.

Anyone looking to find the best projector should give the Sim2 C3X and the Ht500 a serious look. $20K to 35K.

JVC - It's the line that we decided to carry, excellent picture quality, no control issues (not now) , good service and so far , over the last year and a half, reliable.

The Sim2 C3x is awesome, we have not done one in a real world enviroment yet. Hopefully that changes soon here. We have used several of their HT projectors and we have been very impressed. Their were a few glitches with their HT300 E-Link, it had to go back in for repairs, but all has been well for a couple of months now.
