We're often asked "what is the best projector" the answer depends on your situation.
If you've got a well lit or bright room, say a business or board room or lounge room (that's not light controlled) you'll need a brighter projector (more ANSI lumens) than one designed for the lounge or home theatre. Sound systems are the same, there is not one that's right for every situation. If you're after a very good system to go with a top line projector in a home theatre please contact us for a bundle price including delivery.
The Projection Screen can make a big difference too.
The size and aspect ratio of the screen relates back to the projectors specifications, location and the lighting.
If you want performance & value you can't go past the higher end "best' Epson EH TW9300 however

Did you know?
Epson make the 3-LCD light engines that many other brands use, we figure they'd know how to get the best from it.
Did you know that for example Panasonic (now RIP for home cinema) used Epson 3-LCD in their Home Cinema projectors.
BenQ DLP projectors are fighting back with their new range of projectors for Q2 2016 (W1110 & W2000)
Epson and BenQ are over the top with their counter claims and example images showing (simulated) how the other brand's projection method is not as good as theirs. With your choice a lot depends on the viewers perception, the viewing application and the actual Projector model. Don't be fooled by the impressive numbers on the box, especially with Epson who've gone a bit overboard with their marketing.

HCC having tested several later model BenQ projectors believe that for most people the dreaded DLP "Rainbows" are no longer a problem, this is thanks to faster colour wheel speed and the image processing. HCC offers an option to swap DLP for LCD if you're one of the few that for whatever reason aren't completely happy. See each products page for offer details, where available.
The largest selling home cinema projectors brands all use 3-LCD technology
3-LCD colours are up to three times brighter than 1-chip DLP projectors. The Epson EH-TW6600W and EH-TW8200 using 3-LCD are selling well and hard to pass for their respective prices. That said, not all people want to go all out on Epson's EH TW8300 Epson claim 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio for their new 4k simulation projectors, (8300 / 9300) you'll find that's not the case in useful viewing modes.
