Unlike my home audio setup I didn't feel like spending weeks reviewing and auditioning products. I spent the morning looking around on the web and comparing prices and picked out what I think is good for the money. Not planning to go the way of 3D yet, so 3D performance isn't all that important to me. If I did I would probably go with that current woot.com deal for the SHARP XVZ30000.
I have a good size family room with no ceiling lamps. I plan on putting the screen in front of my TV setup. So I could transition from one to the other depending on my viewing mood.
I plan on going these all from Amazon.com
Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350 @ $1,109.00
Elite Screens ELECTRIC125H-A1080P2 Spectrum Projection Screen (125 Inch 16:9 AR) @ $478.79
ATDEC TH-WH-PJ-FM Telehook Flush Ceiling Projector Mount @ $50
Elite Screens VMAX/Manual wall and ceiling hanging L-brackets @$20
Aurum Cables High Speed HDMI Cable (50 Ft) - Cl3 Rated for In-wall Installation @$ 26.99
Totaling + $1684.70
I want the AT screen for flexibility of placement and the potential to have a tower speaker as my center channel. I will eventually be building a HT room with stadium ceiling and will have a stage to place the speakers and subs on. Not sure if this would be rigid enough but I can always return it to Amazon if needed.
I could spend more if needed. But wasn't sure if the additional cost would be worth it.
