If noise is of concern, then get the Sony HW40ES for sure. It's a fairly bright model and is one of the quietest on the market.

Unfortunately, CFI rarely does this. CFI typically will take slow pans and smooth them out some, but when scenes get hectic, the video often falls apart with most CFI because of the amount of real...

It doesn't ever show a great picture, but it shows a good picture. Black levels are worse on the PF1500 than on the W1070, and the W1070 is significantly brighter all the time. So, contrast on the...

I wouldn't think twice about it.

Get a JVC.

Everything else is a marginal gain IMO. The 6000 was a solid unit, but LCD isn't going to do much without the DI, and JVC rocks - ROCKS - the...

I love Monoprice Redmere cables, but there are a ton of options which work fine.

I'm not sure how anyone ended up with a Monster cable that didn't work with the PS4. That's just not reality.

A/V receivers typically restore and reclock the HDMI signals. I'm unaware of ANY HDMI A/V receivers that are current, and halfway decent, which don't reclock and restore the HDMI signals.

I can't and won't. I don't recommend wireless to anyone. But, check Amazon and read the reviews on the models you are looking at. Results vary... widely. Good luck.

I set my volume to zero, it's never changed. So, I don't hear any audio. I go straight from my BD player to the projector, so I would definitely hear audio if the volume changed on me.

No, the projector needs to support ARC, and you would need CEC turned on, which really sucks, and ARC isn't a reliable connection for audio.


Not at all. This should work just fine.

I will second this. At about 100", you are good with the PF1500. It's a 1080p projector, with reasonably good contrast, that delivers a solid image for the money.

It's certainly not the W1070 or...

The more I look at the PF1500, the less I like it. It's not that it isn't awesome at the right size, but my screen isn't the right size, and the W1070 is a good deal better.

I spent a long time...

The W1070 or the HW40ES make sense. The AE8000 doesn't make sense. If the W1070 was quieter, then it would be the ideal choice. Your room isn't very good for front projection. Don't get me wrong,...

No, that would be worse.

Get HDBT. It's the most reliable, and highest quality connection available today using cat-5 cabling.

Monoprice has a decent HDBT extender kit here:

1.5" conduit, preferably something like Carlon Resigard flexible conduit, is ideal.

At 25' to 30', I would have used a traditional HDMI cable or two, not cat-5 for this distance. Cat-5 is cheap, but the HDBT units are pricey. HDMI is more expensive than Cat-5, but in my testing is...
