I am getting a 92 inch image with the PJD5134 at 13 feet. Which is the front of the projector to the screen. That is the max image I get at that distance, so this projector might not work for you.

Yes, but keep in mind, the DLPs are sharper and have better contrast. I like my Epson HC2000 because the lamps are cheap at $99. I don't notice the motion except for the opening to the Amazing...
