I'm in the market for a new pj, and I was really considering a 3D unit, but I may backpedal and just go with a nice quality standard model.
The premium paid for something like the lower end JVC/3D model is just not worth it I think, and messing with the glasses and such, I think I'm done with that idea.
So when trying to get the best quality for you hard earned dollar in the 2D market, I would normally look at something like a Panasonic AE-4000, but this new lower cost JVC model has me VERY intrigued.
My biggest concern, is the fact that I have a lower ceiling in my theater room, and the fixed screen has to literally go almost all the way against the ceiling.
So with the pj being ceiling mounted, with also the need for a shorter throw distance, I'm wondering if the HD250 will work in my setup... that is, with the lens basically in line with the top of the screen.
Will this work??? Does the HD250 have lens shift?
...and if not, does it have keystone correction?
I know many SCOFF at the notion of using keystone, but my understanding is that with DIGITAL keystone correction, the use of it it virtually unnoticeable in real world viewing.
I guess I just want to know if I can fit this puppy into my setup or not.
I can't believe that this thing is streeting, but there is apparently NO projection calculator for the model.
OR, if there is one, would someone kindly point me in the right direction...
I would also like to know what would be the very best screen material to use with a pj like this?
My room is 100% light controlled, and as I mentioned, I will be trying to put the pj as close as possible to the screen... like 11 ft from a 96-99" wide 2.35:1 screen... most likely DIY unless I can find an affordable fixed frame model.
Anyway, thank you in advance for any info and time invested in my inquiry.
By reading a couple of the pages in this thread, there appears to be some very knowledgeable people here against JVC models.
