to accomplish the task. Just fashion a wood mounting plate, so that you can fix to your projector so you can screw that mount to accomplish the task.
With that said, expected delivery date for this projector is Tuesday the 13th. Can't wait!
Based on what you two are saying, this is completely the wrong projector for me ... (sigh) for several reasons:
1. I really don't want to ceiling mount.
2. Although I said the wall mount will be about the same height, what I meant is the wall mount will be about 12-18 inches lower. (to me that's about the same lol)
3. Compound that with the fact that it's 12 inches from the center of the lens to the bottom of the image.
4. That's bad for me because my wall has wood trim (similar to this)
, which leave me only 63 inches of wall height for the screen. Because of that, I intend to have the top of the screen flush with the wall/ceiling border. So, the "12 inches from the center of the lens to the bottom of the image" is a real deal killer. I need a projector that can shoot straight or at least not have such a drastic angle.
5. Besides all this, I wanted to have a 120-inch screen, but at only 13 feet from PJ to wall, it looks like I can only get 106 inches. I was going to compromise on size, but with all these other barriers, oh well. Guess I still have to keep looking for a projector.
