To me it comes down to simply do I want my speakers hidden behind the screen? For me, the answer is yes, as having the sound sources at screen level evokes a more accurate, involving experience. Especially with dialogue, as the "disconnect" of having voices emanate from above or below the screen is eliminated.
Aesthetics are also a factor, as are limitations in the room itself.
If these factors are less important to you than a very, very bright image, then consider the HP.
Remember its properties, though, as it is retro-reflective. I had a 92" wide HP in my theater at one time. When my projector was ceiling mounted, there was a noticeable drop in the gain from initial experiments with it table mounted. But if you indeed have the projector mounted close to your head, it should offer better results for you than I had. My projector was mounted probably around 3 feet above my head.
Also, I had a very wide seating area, and the cone was not optimal for the far seats.
Hope these thoughts can be of some help as you try and figure this out.

I know these are kinda far apart in screen choices but it's where I am.
Total light control, Sony VW60, 92" wide screen.
Just looking for opinions and pros or cons.
