Hey all, just picked up an Epson 8350 at Best Buy and I decided I wanted an electric screen, and they don't stock any.
I'd like to spend close to $300, but I'm slightly flexible. It's going in a living room which has some ambient light. All windows do have darkening curtains. If I had to guess (which I do), the room during the day probably has 15-20% light. At night, I can get it completely dark.
I would like to be able to enjoy the experience during the day as well as in the dark. This is a living/dining room environment.
Wall to wall width is 13ft. Ceiling height is 9ft. Minimum viewing distance will be 10ft. Maximum and most used viewing distance will be 15ft.
Projector mounting has not been decided. Options are 1ft above ground at 13ft to screen, beneath coffee table. 4-6ft above ground at 17 feet to screen. Or, about 18ft to screen and 4-6feet high, to the right of the screen requiring some sort of lense shift calibration.
Desired screen size is 92" to 100". I *think* both of these will feel huge in the room, mainly due to the width, and I want to mount to ceiling.
I would love some recommendations on specific models and any reasoning as well :-). I love football, do some gaming (like COD) and want the best experience possible whole watching movies.
I have no idea what gain, color, material, etc. screens will accommodate the best quality and experience possible.
