I bought a reconditioned Epson Powerlite S3 recently for $500 from a site
It's probably not it the class everyone's talking about but it came with a 2
year warranty, has 1600 lumens and looks very nice. The only negative for
me is the native res is 800x600. I would check that site out if I were you,
they may have other brands on sale.
Also, where I work we use several LCD projectors, mostly Epson, but we have
two Sanyo's that look very nice.
