I am building my first home theater and have a dilemma. I will be projecting from 14' onto a 120" diagonal screen in my finished basement. There is a tini window in the corner which I can completely black out, so I have great light control. I kind of want to get the HD25e because I read that it is more efficient and has a cheaper replacement bulb, but my fear is that it is going to be too bright for my application. Can you guys comment on whether you think it is too bright for a dark basement? can I just turn down the brightness on the projector without sacrificing image quality?
Additional quesions: I know the digital keystone adjustment degrades image quality, but is the degredation proportional to the angle? in other words, if I just have to tilt the projector a little bit, will I sacrifice less that if I have to tilt it dramatically, or is it an all or nothing thing? I'm asking because I have a fairly low ceiling (87"). On a related note, can anyone recommend a very low profile ceiling mount that would be compatible with the hd25e? Thanks for your time guys, and please forgive my ignorance as this is my first go round.
