If you don't need 3D, the Epson 8345 is selling refurbished with full 2year warranty and new lamp around $550 from major sellers like VisualApex. The 8345 has over 2X the native contrast of the 2040 as well as a significantly better dynamic iris...better contrast and better blacks in a good room.

Otherwise, around $1100 the Epson 3000 (or a 3500 during a sale) has nearly 3X the native contrast of the 2000/2030/2040.

Both would look better for movies in anything resembling a dark room. The 2040 looks to be the better gaming projector though.
