In response to several requests I have decided publish a list of equipment I would consider buying or recommending.  Equipment listed is not necessarily the "very best available" but does represent what I think is "best available for the price". 

Disclaimer:  This list represents my opinion and should not be construed as an endorsement of a particular product or guarantee of suitability.  With any major purchase, especially something as subjective as audio/video gear, try before you buy.
SharpVision DT-400: WXGA, DLP, 960 lumens, List $4500, street $2800.  Very similar to XV-Z2000, lower price.  (pictured, above)
