Then what becomes of all "The Children of Lessor Gods"?
BigB has a Optoma GT750e, a 3000 Lumen DLP w/no Zoom and a 7.8" Image Offset. With a 6' Throw...and 8' ceilings...he should/will be mounting the PJ on the Ceiling using a 2" Drop. That will place the Top of his Screen at 12" down from the ceiling, and the Bottom edge of the screen at 22" off the Floor.
Given the use of RS-MaxxMudd Regular (1.2 gain) and a sprayer, he'll spend about $150.00 or so...including Trim, but he'd get a Screen worth many, many times that of a $150.00 in quality and performance. The RS-maxxMudd will offer enough ambient light performance that when combined with 3000 lumens and 3000:1 DLP Contrast, (41 fls), only wide open windows with Sunbeams directed onto the screen will hamper his joyful endeavors.
But...guess what. Once this particular someone sees the difference that exercising even a modicum of light control can do for image quality, I'd bet he'd at least pull the shades halfway closed.
Silver Fire v2.55 3.0
would indeed be an even more superior choice if watching movies or TV in "HIGH" ambient light is just gonna happen no matter what. 3D would be best served up in a light controlled situation,
Lastly....even with the Windows in Play, if the OP/TS can choose to paint the Walls a dark shade of something in a Flat sheen, and the ceiling (...at least above the Screen...) the same shade only 3x datker, all those foot lamberts bouncing off the screen won't tend to bounce off those walls and the ceiling and come back onto the screen surface to haunt his "dreams".
I's strongly suggest that the items I have mentioned be taken into serious contemplation, examined for their worthiness, and abject devotion made toward following those aforementioned dictates.
