I just purchased the hc7900dw and am shopping for a reasonably priced ceiling mount that will fit properly and allow for some adjustment. I would appreciate any guidance that might prove helpful. Thanks
The Peerless PRGUNV universal projector mount is also considered very good, but I know personally that it doesn't come close to the build quality of the Chief Elite mount.
It is a universal mount which means it will work with your projector today, or the one you buy twenty years from now... (maybe)
At the end of the day, this is standard 1.5" threaded pipe and is available in any length you need. I think the longest piece I've used was about 8.5 feet long.
Thanks for your input, I checked out the mounts online. By their description I'm sure they are very well made, but I'm not sure I want to spend quite that much. I am definitely building my first theater on a budget. Do you or anyone else have any experience with the mounts in the sub $100 range? There are a lot of them on Amazon and other online retailers that seem like they could do the job quite well. My basement ceiling is about 102" but I have a ceiling fan in the middle that hangs down about 18". If I decide to remove the fan I can go with a flush mount otherwise it needs to have an extension. Thanks for any suggestion that would help.
I have a fair bit of experience with mounts from $30 to $200, and the Chief is significantly better than anything else. Yes, the price matches, but you buy one mount forever. It's worth it to spend the money.
Still, on the cheap side with something that can be used with different standard 1.5" pipe, this is the best of the 'cheap' I have seen:
Not even close to the RPM Elite series, but 1/3 the price or so.
