Thanks for your help. I am not only new to PJ's but usually just lurk on boards. Not used to posting.
My room is light controled 13 x 23 with 9' ceiling. I have it wired to mount from the ceiling. I do want the DLP and the Mits seems to be the best value but concerned about the lack of lense shift. Am I reading do much and getting confused?
Is there a big difference between the 1000 and the 3000? The 3000 is in my budget but would always prefer to spend less if there isn't much of a difference.
If you can place the projector properly then lens shift won't be an issue for you. With those dimensions, assuming you don't have any limitations on where you mount it, you shouldn't have a problem. Use an online calculator to make sure, though.
You can use the throw distance calculator on Mitsubishi's site.
