Projector Comparison - Benq 1070 vs Optoma HD26 vs Epson 2030/2040/2045

Friends, I know most of us are searching this topic on net to get answer which one is the best project in market. Yes :), more we go through reviews ... we start getting confuse. Same happened with me and I spent around 1.5 month reading blogs and reviews.

Finally i have got all three top projectors and tested it personally. while doing this i called group of friends in different groups to have their different views. Really it was interesting to compare all three top projectors and have different eyes. Let me share review comments here, ll try to be very crisp and practical.
