What's the best projector under $1,000? When it comes to entry-level home theater, there are a lot of options out there. In the sub-$1,000 price bracket, there are five different models available right now that are particularly exciting: the BenQ HT1075, the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030, the InFocus IN8606HD, the Optoma HD26, and the Viewsonic PJD7820HD. All are native 1080p projectors, and all retail for less than $1,000. That's about where the similarities end, however.
What we've learned from this shootout is what we've always known: that there is no perfect projector for every situation, and that your individual needs are far more important than any notion of objective quality. So take a step back, decide where and how you're going to use your projector, and then decide which one of these scenarios best describes your needs.
