If you mount it at closest throw with the IRIS completely open, it will be bright enough at first. However, as the lamp dims, say after 300 hours, it will start getting TOO DIM pretty quickly. I am not even talking about if the LAMP dims abnormally, I am just taking into account average dimming. You will end up buying too many lamps too fast. That said, if you are one of the people that doesn't mind a very dark image, then it may be ok.
If you use your projector only occasionally, say less than 300 hours per year, and you don't mind replacing the bulb every year or two, you might get away with it.
I would not recommend it though, look at the Epson 5010 or Benq w7000 instead.
