I have that mount without the extra shaft extention.
I bought it a couple years ago for my Epson pj, but I ended up having to buy 2 to get enough parts to stretch the spider brackets out far enough to the holes.
The mount is solid, but you get what you pay for.
More expensive mounts are a lot easier to work with, while this mount comes in pieces, needs assembled, and takes lots of tweaking to get it right. All the adjustments and screws take allen wrenches to adjust (which they provide), but not as easy as the better mounts that have nice turn dials and built in leveling and all that.
If you want easy, buy one for $100.
If you don't mind taking the extra time it takes to tweak this one till it's right, then it's a money saver.
Again though, for my Epson I had to buy 2 to get more parts to reach the mounting holes on the pj.
Don't know if it would be the same for the 3000/4000.
BTW, that's what SHE said...
