My advice to anyone buying a projector home theater is: Don't do it. I bought something like this 10 years ago and it is still in the box. It's right up there with the tape camcorder.

I have a dedicated room for my home theatre with a high end projector and sound. We use it almost every weekend for family movie night.

Now I'm looking for a cheap 1080p projector for my bedroom so no clue what you're talking about...

Realllly.... I've had a 1080p projector for years now, with made by me, 130 inch screen. It's been awesome for watching movies, sports, etc., and anybody that has seen it has loved it.

I'm not an expert but from what I've read they are decent, for the price. For $280 having a screen as big as you want can not be beat. Having a decent surround system for the sound will complete the experience.

Been using a 720p projector for many years and have been happy with the quality (on a 100" screen), but perhaps I'm the only one! :)

I’ve been using an Epson 720p for years and it’s been mostly great.
Playing Mario Karts at 110 inches makes it a lot easier to spot secret entrances.

However in 2020 at the price point of the OP, and depending on projection size, I would definitely get a refurb Epson 1080p (from Epson) over a new 720p.
110 is stretching it a lot for BBC documentaries but fine (for me) for movies. Of course I may have just gotten use to it as my options for placement forced the projection size.

OP wants to project a 70 inch image in a bedroom.

I'd suggest finding a cheap 65 inch TV (some go on sale for around 500 that will usually blow away most projectors for the price range you are looking at).

Point is not everybody has an unlimited amount of disposable income..and an extra 150$ might be more than what the OP wants to spend.
"Unlimited amount of disposable income" ??? We are talking about a projector right?

4k is better...

If you are watching bluray or gaming, it's a different story.
Everyone watches at least some Netflix, etc now.
