Hi Guys,

My research shows that these are the best 3 projectors that do 3d and are under $2,000. My question is what would you go with if the application is going to be for movies only in 2.35:1. I'm going to be using it to watch movies on a CIH screen and I plan to zoom the lens and keep it that way so that it would fit the screen. Can anyone recommend which one of these projectors will be a good bet for CIH where the black bars arent too noticeable? And I heard great things about the 3D on them.

PS. I had asked the question about 3D and CIH before on this forum and the reccomendations that I got were for projectors above $2000

I could be wrong about this, but some of the PJ recommendations that you got (the ones you said are above $2K) might be available for below $2K in the coming months as the 2013 models roll out. Be patient and watch for current models to go on sale!

Thanks, I have been looking at the epson 5020. Thinking about this, newer version of the 5010. Due out in early October. Thanks for your assistance .

If you're going to watch 2.35:1 movies only on a CIH screen, black bars won't be an issue.
But will the zoom only be a vertical zoom, and not a horizontal one? So will the picture appear to be elongated? I understand that the Anamorphic lens takes care of that; but if you want to do the setup on a cheap, will this suffice?
