That is very interesting as I will be purchasing my first projector soon and due to the fact that my ceiling is high and I had the carpenters build a valence to hide the electric screen, I will need the lens to be about 10 inches above the top of the screen (and would prefer it to be even higher). The AE8000 has excellent lens shift and I can be even higher than 10 inches above the screen if necessary.
How much higher is the center of your projector lens above the top of your screen?
Also do you notice any geometry issues with the image after you tilted the projector?
