Hello everyone, I am pre-wiring my first home theater and am considering a "short throw" style projector. My installer suggests this style.
My room is approx. 20' wide x 18' deep (start of living room behind theater room-no barrier) in basement. All equipment minus blu-ray and gaming consoles located in basement mechanical room.
I enjoy watching movies/netflix and the kiddo likes gaming.
Installer is looking at 120"-130" screen size.
Budget is kinda tight, would like to stay under $1500
Would like long lamp life/low cost of ownership
Best picture possible 3d would be nice
What will my pros-cons be?
We are ready to pull cable to projector location, and I need to make a decision on projector. I'm not a techie obviously, but heard that higher lumens are better?
Feel free to be specific on brands/models suggested to look for and also avoid.
Thanks everyone in advance for your help and support!
