My Acer is ceiling mounted; however, I chose a mount with an extension so the projector is lowered a couple of feet. I probably lose a little of the HP's gain, but it works very, very well. Another big advantage of this screen is that because it is retro-reflective it does NOT show any wrinkles or waves in the screen! I didn't have much choice but to ceiling mount it right above my head since I have a Sony G90 CRT projector floor mounted in front of my seating position and an Epson 9500 shelf mounted behind me. I'm surrounded!
IMO, the HP is superior to any other screen I've used, even if the positioning of the projector isn't ideal. Don't write off this screen just because you can't put the projector close to head height!
Here's the thing - many people can't afford a JVC or Sony 3D solution, but would really like 3D in the home. These little 720p 3D DLPs are tougher to set up and don't have all the bells and whistles; however, once working with the right screen they provide an exemplary 3D image which far exceeds their pay grade. I have yet to see any "ghosting" and the solid, punchy 3D image has me sold on this projector technology and 3D. Will the Sonys and JVCs be better? For sure. Will they be 7 to 20 times better? Not a chance and if "ghosting" is a problem for them then we'll probably see a resurgence of DLP projectors, including 1080p DLPs, for 3D. I think 3D is going to look as good, or nearly as good, from the cheap seats as it's going to look from the expensive seats and letting people know that is what, IMO, this forum is all about.
I have one pair of DLP link glasses on order so I can see for myself how they stack up to the Nvidia ones.
