Hello, everyone. I need a little help/guidance/reassurance with my choice. I have pretty much decided on a Sony, now it's time to figure out which one; the HW 30 or the VW95. First, a little background:
The space is my basement and the main viewing area is 18ft by 11ft, with the screen on the 11ft wall. The celling is 7ft. I will have two windows that will shed some ambient light but will have blackout shades and curtains. My viewing habits are (approximately) 40% regular TV, 35% sports, 20% movies and 5% games/other.
That being said, I love watching football and want to have people over to watch the games, so I need something that can perform with a fair amount of light. I also want a certain wow factor with movies. I can't say whether I care about 3d since I've never actually seen 3d on a TV or projector, only in the theater. I plan on getting a Da-Lite HP screen, either 92 or 106in, but I have to admit I'm not very confident in my screen knowledge.
It seems from reading the forums that the Sony models would be the best fit. I'm leaning towards the HW30, but I just don't know. If you have any advice, please let me know. If you think that a projector isn't for me, I have no problem getting the new 65in Panny plasma.
BTW, I've spent a lot of hours over the last few weeks on these forums and I just want to thank everybody for the posts. I've learned a lot, but I have to admit, I'm, a little overwhelmed. Thanks in advance for any help.
