Why such a small screen for such a big room ? And why would you place a cabinet under the screen ? How far off the ground is the screen ? I assume you will have plugs covering the windows, right ?...

The image area of a 150" screen is just over 6' tall, but the case, black area at top and bottom all add to the height. With the case mounted to the ceiling, the weight bar at the bottom of the...

Viewing off angle is one measure. Uniformity across the screen is another. How are the outside edges of the panel from 0 degree viewing angle ?

It is interesting that the Carl's Silver is only...

I've never tried to paint ceiling tiles. I would probably remove them all, take them outside and spray paint them. Or use a thick shaggy roller intended for rough surfaces. If you could find an...

Today I received both the sample pack from Carl's and the black denim yard I ordered. I can't say I am impressed with any of it.

The denim is incredibly thin where I was expecting a heavier...

I wonder whether your sectional is to scale in your drawing. It shows the long side as being about 13' which seems huge to me. Are you sure you couldn't rotate it so the short side is on the long...

Here's one. Remove the shelves and upright on the right so you have the entire horizontal space to work with. Then add 8" wide panels (or whatever it takes to fill the gap) hinged to each existing...

Don't forget to paint the ceiling a dark gray as well. You didn't mention the seating distance, but I'd only consider LCD if you like to sit fairly far from the screen. If you plan to sit closer...

16 feet of room depth is not really enough to go long ways and have two rows of recliners. You would lose 2' to place the speakers behind an AT screen, leaving just 14'. A riser with recliners...

Too bad about choosing the Sony, but it is your money. I couldn't stand the idea of the SXRD panels going bad after just a few hundred hours.

A shelf is a fine idea, but I doubt you'll find a...

So you need horizontal lens shift. That leaves out the BenQ HC1200. BenqDirect had a refurb W7500 which is their flagship with both horizontal and vertical lens shift for $1600.

Did you check if the PLC lens is pushed all the way down and clicked in place where it goes ? Looking at a white field does this result in a band at the bottom like in this thread:

That is very close to the ceiling and rules out all but the W7500 from my list.

Could you repaint the screen lower ? The recommendation these days is for the image to have 1/3rd or more of its...

Yes, but it also lacks the vertical lens shift of the HT2050 and W1070. Not a big deal if you have an adjustable mount. It is as bright as the W1070 even with a 210W vs. 240W lamp which should make...

Wow. 12 yrs on a Benq is good news, but only second lamp means not used much. 800 lumens, 2000:1 contrast ratio, and WSVGA resolution, with DVI cable input. Yes, I'd say it is upgrade time. You...

Lens shift or lens offset ? The HC1200 has a fixed vertical offset but it is close to the max lens shift of some other projectors. 9" for a 120" image. If the screen is 24" off the floor, the top...

12'10" would be minimum. Adding 6" safety margin is a good idea. And placing cables and power at 24" behind that would be about right. So 15'4" for power and HDMI.

With only 10' throw you must be using a screen 100" or less, right ? The $750 BenQ HT2050 is brighter than the 8500, quieter, and has the smaller pixel gap of DLP compared to LCD, so screen door...

Have you considered the Benq HC1200 ? It can do 120" from 16' and is basically a brighter version of the W1070. 33ms input lag, 2100 real lumens in cinema mode or 1600 in ECO lamp cinema mode. ...

No, a new lamp does not include the lens. And the W1070 does not have an auto focus feature so why it looks sharper when you cover half the light path is a mystery to me.

You say "tissue paper". ...
