I'm looking to put a projector in my basement, and I need help getting started. I think I'm going to need a short throw projector because I want the wall to be about 6 ft from the front of the projector. I'd like a relatively large screen size at that distance, i'm hoping for something around 100 inches.
Other than knowing I want a 1080p projector, short throw, (don't really care about 3d but it would be a bonus) I don't have too many other requirements. There is a window on the wall adjacent to where I will project, but I can block that out if brightness is an issue
I'm not really sure where to start, and when I look at projectors online I'm having a hard time identifying if they are short throw or not. How can I tell? Do you guys have specific models that you recommend at an entry level price range?($800-$1300). It looks like I might want to consider the Optoma HD20 but that seemed to be about 2 years old.
