I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see 4k projectors dropping down to the "affordable" ($3k and under section) level for at least a couple more years. Grab the Sony now and enjoy it a few years; by the...

I had a spandex screen with 2 layers of white. The UF sample I had was very similar to the spandex. I was really focused on brightness when I was comparing and in that sense they were pretty much...

I did a 140" 2.35 screen with the Seymour material.

1. 1x4s are what I used; worked fine.
2. I didn't have any interior supports. It did make the frame a little wobbly and it definitely requires...

I'm another who didn't care for 4. I think I quit playing it about 10 hours in. I really enjoyed 5 and actually thought it was too short.
I think my favorite is still Vice City

My guess is it will be a least a couple more years before we get true 4K projectors here in this $3,000 and under section.

OP, I'm a big advocate of checking out the For Sale section here on the boards. You can find some really good deals on some nice used projectors (if buying used is an option for you). For example, if...

I'd agree with AV_Integrated, for 30 feet I wouldn't bother with an active cable.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned yet is since you are using this for XBOX, another spec you need to watch is input lag. This is especially true if you are playing FPS or "twitch" type games. I'd...

I tried the Sony headset a few years ago at CES. It was pretty cool but no way would I consider it a virtual IMAX. About the only use I'd have for one of those is for a long car/plane ride. I...

Looks great! I just recently started on my 2nd THTLP. Out of curiosity, why did you cut the holes in your brace pieces? Is that just to cut some weight or does it do something performance wise?

What about 106" screen? I think that's a common size. That gives you a little more wiggle room and doesn't reduce the size too much.
