I've owned $30k audio systems, and $300 audio systems. I've owned $12k projectors, and $1k projectors. For the car analogy people out there commenting on this post, I've driven everything from a rusted-out POS VW Bug up to my current ride, a 2012 BMW M-series X5. There are folks out there with a lot of money that want to buy nicer items to be "elitest". There are folks out there looking for deals because they can't afford the best and they are looking for some validation that their $200 item is every bit as good as the $2000 item. Both of these positions are wrong. As Evan mentioned, try a head-to-head of the Sony VW600ES vs the Epson 6030/5030 and see what happens. The price point of an item will give you some insight into its quality, but that is not always the end-all-be-all of the decision making process. There is garbage out there with small and large price tags hung from them... it is better to judge a piece on its merit and technology moreso than its price-point. I have a projector and screen right now that cost me less than $4k for the set, and I would put it up against anything you want at double the price. My projector is average at best, my screen is one of the best in the world. It's not that these items are on one end of the spectrum or the other... it's about how they work together under my room conditions and utilizing my sources. You can't go off-roading in a Ferrari, and it does you no good to put Z-rated racing tires on a VW Bug.
