Merry Christmas fellow AVS'ers!
It has been a very very long time since I have purchased a new projector. My last pj was Panasonic AE-100 if you can remember that. Plenty of people buying them from Japan, the price was right. 700 lumens and 500:1. eek! My have we come a long way. My wife and I recently purchased a house with a finished basement. Naturally I am looking to fill that basement up with some new equipment.
With the deal on the Epson 2030, free mount and $125 visa gift card, it may be time to pull the trigger again. My question comes with regard to screen height. I have 7' to the ceiling to work with. I do not know how to figure out if I am going to have an issue mounting the projector upside down with a universal mount on the ceiling and have enough room for the image, top to bottom. I am planning on a 106" (52x92).
Please advise if you are willing and able. I appreciate it.
PS - DLP gives me headaches and the 8350 seems to have so many issues that I am not willing to go there. Totally light controlled room. Hoping that engaging eco mode will not torch my eyes. I am making a fixed screen out of a huge square screen my dad picked up for me... I am not sure of the gain but it appears to me run of the mill type, white.
