This isn't my first rodeo when it comes to theater rooms. I helped design my parents theater room in their home in Southern Utah. It was thousands of dollars seats 10. I totally agree that dark sound proof acoustic walls are the way to go, but since this is a secondary residence. I am not spending anymore money on this rental. I already have to fix all the holes I am putting into the walls when I leave.

It was a pain to install and align, but is the totally worth it for the price. Maybe took me 30min to get it to work and tighten it.

No way I am spending $100 on a mount when a $25 dollar mount works fine. Since this is a rental and I wanted to go as cheap as possible. doesnt make sense to spend that kind of money on a projector mount. When I build out a theater the budget will be very different and I wont be buying a BenQ budget projector. Honestly I bought this thing hoping it will last me 1-2yrs and then go in a master bedroom or kids playroom.
I am very stoked with the price and performance. Put a theater in a media room for $100 bucks. Projector, Mount, and Screen.
