Guys, sorry to revive this thread, but I just bought an HC1600 and am having fun toying with it.
Quick question about zoom. Is it OK to crank the zoom on this thing or do you lose image quality? I'm aiming for a 110-inch screen, but I have a 16-foot room and don't want to cram the projector against the back wall. It's ceiling mounted.
By the way, I'm shocked how good this thing looks projected onto a chocolate-colored wall. Crazy, considering they should drop a zero from this forum -- "Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP" -- for the price I just picked up this display model for.
