I am currently finishing up the painting on my media room and my wife gets her bonus on the 1st
so I am trying to pick out a projector and screen for the room. The room is 17'6" long and 11' wide, the walls are painted matte black, and the lone window has been blacked out, so complete dark is 100% achievable. The room will be used primarily for movies and gaming (mostly FPS so latency is a concern). 3d is not important to me, I would rather spend my money on the best 2d picture I can get. My throw distance should be about 14'6" and my primary seating is flexible, but probably at least 10' so I have room for the Kinect to do its thing. my budget for projector AND screen needs to be at or below 2500 but obviously if i can save some money without sacrificing much, that is great.
So the things that could impact selection:
- Center Speaker is currently ceiling mounted at what would be in front of the screen but it should only hang down 6" or so
- Kinect apparently needs to be about 2' off the ground to function correctly
- Combined I think this makes my max space for screen 11' wide by 5'6" high which if I am looking at it correctly means about 135" screen
- I have no idea how sensitive I am to Rainbow effect, but I had a 62" DLP TV about 8' from me for 2 years and don't recall having any issues with anything like that
What other info might i need to give to help advice??
