The JVC DLA-X30 arrived on Friday, and when it's dark out I've been projecting onto the wall along with the doors & windows.
The first thing: the black bars are just not visible at all when watching a movie, in pitch black, or with any light.
My wife is impressed with the large 2.35 image, she's now officially excited about this whole project. We will be definitely going with the drop down screen in front of the windows/doors, it just works best with the room. (I do appreciate all the alternative room suggestions!)
A noob question: If I'm projecting say a 130" wide image from 20', is there any quality loss if I project from 25' but adjust the projector?
