My new house (closing next month) has a media room with dimensions: 11' by 18' and 9' ceiling. The electrical outlet is placed on the ceiling at about 14' from the screen wall.
When I saw a great deal on the 1070 at the Benq outlet store last month, I just jumped on it. But now I'm not sure this will work based on the calculations from projector central.
I figure the largest screen my wall can handle is about 120" diagonal allowing for my tower speakers on either side. That translates to throw range between 10' and 13'. I assume throw range means I can ceiling mount the projector anywhere in this range from the wall to get the 120": diagonal picture?
So looks like it's about a foot short of where I need it. Unless of course I take into account the length of the power cord, etc, which may still not be enough, or would it?
Or should I just return it to Benq (still have until end of the month) and get the Optoma HD25 which has a longer throw distance and seems a better fit for my room conditions?
Would appreciate any advice, TIA
