Just got my AE300 yesterday and MAN IS IT SPECTACULAR!!! Now I need to mount it on the wall behind my sofa. Here's the current solution that I'm considering...

BestBuy and just about any other department store/hardware store sells a wall mount for a 13" tv. Here's a link to one:

http://www.bestbuy.com/Detail.asp?m=...at=&e=11066423

It also comes in white and silver.

Has anyone tried this successfully? Is there any reason it would be a problem? The mount comes with a strap that can wrap around the projector to secure it.

I'm also considering just building a wooden shelf and painting it, but the tv mount would be easier.

I'll have to use the same setup, wall mount, but I think that the
rotation capabilities of your suggested solution would probably
be annoying pretty quickly.

Do you mean because if it gets bumped, the alignment of my picture would change? I guess that would be a problem. Maybe I should consider a shelf.

How close can the AE300 be to the wall without overheating?

Greetings

I just built myself a shelf to sit the projector on ... upsidedown of course.

The unit is about 6 inches from the wall and I have not had any overheating ... slightly warm that is all.

Why upside down??? Is that so it is easier to reach the buttons on top of the pj? What bolts do you use to connect the bottom of the pj to the shelf if its upside down? Does anyone have any pics of this?

The shelf is too close to the ceiling 10 inches down from the ceiling.

At that height ... the projector cannot project an image that is upright ... it ends up on the ceiling.

It is effectively a ceiling mount in terms of physical space ...

I have the unit ..."stick'em" to the shelf so it won't fall off ...

Obviously the shelf is level and there is no reason it would ever fall off short of an earthquake.

I too have mounted my 300 upside down on a shelf....just over 6 feet. With that height I do not have to use the keystone adjustment as it's throw is perfect.

If I want to build a 91" screen (80 x 45), how high does the projector have to be mounted upsidedown to prevent having to use keystone... I guess this leads to the question of how high is the correct viewing height for a 91" screen, and whats the method of calculating the projector mounting height based on screen size and height off of the ground?
