I'm aware of an authorized dealer in Central Texas that will sell for $2k as well. I don't think they will ship it though.

Thanks for the additional advice. The ceiling curtain track is a good idea....I'm just not sure where to source that from.

I have the option to have them run speaker wire through the walls prior...

Thanks for the advice. This wouldn't be the house...this was just a model they were building. But of course the widows etc would be the same. They won't paint the rooms individually so it's likely to...

My wife and I are considering this house.


I would be given the game room for a home theater.

I went ahead and built the frame. I was able to do so without the instructions based upon some of the warnings I've read in the forums. I was able to build the frame by myself but since I'm not...

I believe a UPS could be useful in cases where the projector is on and the power goes out. It would buy you the two minutes or so the fan runs when you turn the projector off. Could improve bulb's...

It has to be assembled which will probably not be a big deal. I've put together similar screens before. Although I have heard the instructions are horrible. We'll see....it will be a few days before...

I'll continue to buy Monoprice cables but I'm not sure this screen will be worth it..

I placed an order for one of their 106 inch multiformat screens on 3/8. I was intrigued by the built in masking system and wasn't seeing anything else similar anywhere.

I've been pleased with...

I've never had Amazon refuse a refund request on items purchased directly from them (meaning NOT one of the merchants using the site). So I'm pretty sure they would take care of you if you had a...

I don't know if I would ever call it grainy (I like Reality Creation by the way...I leave it on the defaults). It adds detail for sure. If you turn it off the picture looks soft to me. So I feel...

The Pioneer at most is only worth what you can get the 51F8500 for. $1300 is way too much. I'd also go with the Samsung. And I own both. My Kuro has red tint after 10k hours and you have to jump...

Black level. And it's a minor one considering everything else the projector offers. It's not going to be 'black enough' if you are used to a good plasma etc. But it has excellent shadow detail so...

Big panels are too much of a crapshoot. Might as well go projector. The entry level SXRD models with a good screen are very uniform.

Return the DLP. Consider a B stock Sony SXRD if your room is suitable for it. Rainbow effect never decreased for ME. Hell I can see it on some plasmas but DLP is by far the worst.
