The link given above is a good one. You should be FAR more specific about your needs and what you actually need. There is a long list of over 400 projectors which are using a laser as the light source and can hit about a 10' wide screen from 5.2m lens to screen (throw distance).

They vary in price from about $1,000 to well over $100,000. I'm thiking you would, at the very least, want it to be widescreen, which narrows down the list. But, we have no idea if this is for home theater use, for business presentation use, for a very dark environment where contrast matters, or a lit conference room where contrast is far less important than light output. Is this for a public venue? Is this for a classroom? Lecture hall?

Not a clue what you actually want or need, so recommendations are not able to be narrowed down at ALL with such a basic request.

Making some assumptions that this is for some sort of conference room or similar, under normal indoor lighting conditions, then you should be looking at a LCD projector, with at least 1920x1080 or better resolution and at least 5,000 lumens. I would pick a model like this one: https://www.projectorcentral.com/NEC-PE506UL.htm

The NEC comes with a 5-year warranty which is pretty much industry leading and can save you from some unexpected headaches. As well, they are a quality manufacturer so you really shouldn't have any issues.

Modifying the above search a bit, setting pricing to be under $4,000 and looking at only widescreen LCD projectors with more than 5,000 lumens, and current models only, this is the updated, and much more manageable list of products....

Unfortunately, there is no way to pick a couple of acceptable resolutions from this list at the same time, but you may individually check 1920x1080 and 1920x1200 for some very detailed options.
