Well I broke down and ordered this projector. It just came in today. I ordered 6 pairs of the Estar glasses for now. Also ordered a replacement bulb.
Screen is going to be around 140". Originally I built a 2.35 screen because of low ceiling and to allow room for front speakers under plus entertainment stand for equipment but I discovered I have room behind wall for speakers so I changed frame to 16:9. I didn't have to buy any lumber for it, I had ripped out a low hung ceiling in kitchen a few years ago and it was sitting in garage. It's 3/4" finished oak, not that I'll be able to see it, but repurposed, I didn't have to spend anything on it.
Can't wait to get a permanent projector installed. My previous 720p projector just sits in the box on the shelf, I just used it on occasion but setup time takes forever so I never used it much. Looking forward to the larger screen and finally a dedicated theater room, besides living room system.
I know this projector is discontinued but manufacture date on box indicates 9/14, so it doesn't appear to be of old stock.
