Im thinkin of getting the Sony 10HT with a 100" diagnol greyhawk screen soon. I was curious how far you think I should be from the screen? I used sonys program and it says the projector should be 12ft away but is there a way to find out how far the people should be? The max i can be is 12 ft away. WIll that be enough or should I get a smaller screen? Any info will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Chris

i have a budget bigger than my budget.

I'd say 12' is far enough. The rule of thumb (depending on who you listen to) is between 1.5 and 3 times screen height. The rule of thumb I like to use for the 10HT, is never sit closer than the projector.

Mine is about that far away with a similar size screen. If you do the calculations in the manual it should help.
