The main thing is to think about a larger screen based on the size of your room.

Also, in a room with light the contrast of a better projector might be somewhat wasted and here is a good summary...

Yes. I've had both and they sound/look basically the same to me. I only replaced the P153s since I wasn't using the P163s which were replaced with the P363s. P163 is on the bottom in the photo.

1) Depending on the throw distance you could go with the BenQ HT2050 or the Epson HC2040. The HC2040 was only $559 yesterday during Amazon prime day. Both would work and if you...

I have the same issue in my 5134 and I get more every time I use it in a dusty place. Since I only use it for trips and holiday decorations, I haven't messed with it.

No scope is fine for me, I might drop the image a couple of inches.

I gave up on photos since I can find my tripod attachment to keep the images constant.

Why not?

If the screen is on the 12.5' wall and the seating distance between 12' and 14', the screen could be 9' wide or 108" for a 16:9 of 123.8" and scope 2.35:1 of 117.3". That still leaves...
