I can't imagine a scenario where the 5030 wouldn't have enough lens shift. Keystoning is for table mounted business projectors. It shouldn't even exist in a Home Theater projector. (IMO) Follow...

The one screen I've seen in action that gave off that silvery sparkle appearance was the Elite Starbright 7. It was a terrific large venue screen (when viewed from 20 feet of more) but had way too...

You make good points there, Dave. I agree with you.

I've seen both DNP materials in action (2.2 and 0.8) mated to a Sony hw40es. I agree with you that the 0.8 material is superior. It does...

If the Silver Ticket behaves like the Cinegrey 5D, (I've no reason to think it would be any different) then the light falloff from the center viewing position should be minimal. It's not a perfect...

Sparkles (or shimmering patterns) are definitely there, but very well controlled as long as you have a decent amount of throw.

In terms of Brightness, color, contrast detail, and placement flexibility, the Epson wins. They're both very sharp with loads of detail. (I'd say DLP in general still has a small advantage) The...

A short throw projector's angle of projection is very steep. The ALR screen would not work very well in your case. The grey paint screen you use now is probably what you should stay with.

At 16 feet, you'll have a much bigger picture than 120 inches. More like 150 inches plus. You'll have get the projector much closer. Around 10-13 feet.
