To all the experienced AV enthusiasts on this site - I am faced with an interesting dilema.
My basement is finally reached a stage where I can start choosing a projector (chosen the Optoma HD65) and screen.
I am torn between two screens that I am looking at - the ELECTRIC125H and the ELECTRIC100H from Elite.
Some of you here have had bad experiences with Elite - and I have to take that into consideration as well - but here's the question....
The size of the room (no ambient lighting) is 12'.3" * 16'.6" - with projection on the wall that is 12'.3" in length.
costs 229.00 and the ELECTRIC125H
costs 305.00 (from pcconnection.com). Cost is not a factor here - what I am more concerned about is that the screen should not look oversized for the room.
To me with the measurements available, it looks like the 125H would have a viewable area is approximately 9 Ft" in length and 5 Ft in height......almost stretching from one corner of the room to the other. The viewable area for the 100H is about (7 Ft" in length and 4 Ft in height.
The distance from screen (seating position) would be about 13"
Would the ELECTRIC125H be too huge and oversized for the room?
Are there any other reasonably priced screens out there < $300.00 that will give me at least a 100" diagonal viewing area?
And finally how good are focuspix screens from www.htdepot.com
Tks & Regards
