I've finally gotten a place on my own and want to get a projector. My place has several limitations though, so I'd appreciate your input if it would be worth attempting.
The living room is the only available spot(my place is only about 650 sq ft). the living room is 15'8 long and has large windows along one side. The painted walls are pale yellow. The nice thing is It's a concrete and steel building(the stereo can go loud!), but it also means I'll have to drill into the ceiling to hang the screen. With the windows and light in the room I can barely see my 50" plasma during the day(I put it on torch mode), so the projector will be a nighttime only thing.
I rent so I have some reservations about the drilling and don't want to paint the walls. I'm looking only at LCD projectors as I'm sensitive to rainbows and also, because I rent, I want the placement flexibility in case I move.
My budget is very limited and I'm looking at the Epson 8350 rrefurb, 6500refurb(if they come back to the Epson store) or the Panny Ar100, with an Elune vision 106" Manual pull down pro cinema grey screen. Hopefully to pull down in front of the TV. Seating distance would be 10 ft from the screen.
Will the reflection from the windows cause lighting issues with the image as they will be perpendicular to the screen?
Sorry for the long winded post, you guys always seem to ask for more info so I did my best to get it all in the first one.
Sorry pics aren't working, will try something else.
