Suggestions for <$1k PJ with good lens shift
I currently have a Sanyo PLV-Z2000 which is ceiling mounted 12'8" from a 120" screen. The projector is mounted 30" from the ceiling, which is about as much as I can safely go without it being a hazard given a tall rear seating platform... however the top of the screen is around 48" from the ceiling due to a sloped ceiling in the front of the room. I could possibly shift it another 4" higher if needed, but that's still a 14-18" delta from the projector to the screen.
I was looking at the Benq W1070, but it appears as if the lens shift is minimal, where as the Z2000 has an amazing lens shift. I'm really hoping to get a brighter image and try out a DLP projector versus the current LCD that I've been running with. Any suggestions?
