Well, I just installed a new Minka-Aire ceiling fan with a 6-inch shorter down-rod in our Living Room. It's finally now possible to ceiling mount our projector. I even have wife-approval
so I ordered a $30 QualGear QG-PM-002-WHT-L from Amazon.
Wish me luck.
Install went fine.
It's installed on the ceiling (7ft from floor) behind couch about 16ft. from projection surface. Mount is mostly retracted to a 22inch length. It seems adequately sturdy and we have never seen any image shaking or vibrations. However, I guess it should be noted that this is a single-level residence (no walking on floor above projector).
I was just barely able to lift projector into place and hook on shaft by myself. Projector "balances" on mount nicely and then you just tighten the various final screws. You can make fine adjustments, but there are no actual "fine adjustment" knobs ... but it's not like you need them with the 8350. I just hold projector perfectly level, lens parallel to screen, and tighten all the screws down (fairly permanently).
Playing around with screen sizes, height, or position is easy with 8350 (nice lens and lens-shift), and no further adjustment of mount is required while messing-around with those things.
Since install, there has been no movement or drift requiring re-adjustment of mount. We like it.
On the back counter was fine, but I'm happy to finally have it on the ceiling.
