What is wrong with the W1080ST? It is the short range version of the W1070.

So have people come to a conclusion regarding whether it's better to use economic vs smart eco mode. I swear someone ran some tests between the two, but I can't find the thread. I know smart ecos brightness changes based on the scene, but which will provide better bulb life over time? Any sort of conclusions made? Thanks!

He wanted to project from a maximum of 18 inches throw range! Try that with a W1080.

My impression is most of us use Eco to avoid the fluctuating brightness and because Smart Eco is too bright on bright scenes. But curious if others concur.

What projector were you thinking of for the ultra-short throw? I believe Runco may have a version, no idea how good the optics are on it, but it's pricey, and I wouldn't use it.

I use ECO mode. It is still bright enough for my 161" screen.

I detest fluctuating brightness, and I don't use dynamic iris features for the same reason. I typically notice when things aren't consistent when I'm viewing and it bugs me.

One of the major consumer electronic companies (Phillips?) has a projector that can sit on a piece of furniture like a low shelf and project onto the wall immediately behind it, which is what the original poster hoped to do. But it's not cheap and the image quality is terrible.

I believe the Hecto Laser projector is ultra short throw. Maybe worth a google.
