I sure appreciate this forum and the time and knowledge that everyone shares on it. It definitely helps the overwhelmed, and I fall into that category.
Our basement has been wired, and dry-walled. I will be painting and putting in carpet and then I'm ready for the projector and screen and would like to start planning that.
The basement is fully light controlled, and the screen will be framed with dark colors for 3 ft on the ceiling and walls before getting to lighter colors. The width of the room is 114 ", and I envision a 100 " wide 16:9 AT screen. The projector will mount on the (7') ceiling 15 ' away from where the screen goes. The projector will be used for:
15% TV shows
I currently don't have much interest in 3d movies, but we do have kids, so potentially our interest in 3d movies will grow.
Source... 100% of content will come from an htpc, either a streaming site or local saved content.
It seems to me that the consensus for great picture quality is the JVC. My questions...
1) Is the JVC the right one to go with for this scenario?
2) Considering it's a relatively small screen in the HT world and our video source quality, world there be a more economical choice that would give similar quality?
3) I'm open to buying the projector / screen anytime from this next month to the end of the year. Is there a best time to make the purchase with regards to deals or b-stock availability?
Thanks for your time and continued input.
