OK guys, about to pull the trigger on a 5030 and screen...first for both!
I got some great price quotes using the projector central "Request a Quote" feature!
I can't really find any high gain screens that are affordable (say ~$1000 or less). So, I was going to pick up a VAPEX 106" tab-tensioned screen. Fixed screen is not an option.
The reasons are:
* wireless trigger
* black case
* small case
The gain is only 1.1.
I am planning on ceiling mounting at a level roughly equal to the height of the top of the view-able area on the 106" screen.
The PJ will be mounted either at 11' or at 15' away depending on whether I mount above the coffee table (directly in front of the seating area) or above the seating area. I want to keep it out of the way of heads.
Here is the question:
Am I going to have enough brightness? Shelf mounting is not an option and I really can't lower the PJ any further.
I strongly considered the Da-Lite Cosmo High Power 2.4 Screen but was told that since the PJ is not shelf mounted (and on the same plane with the screen) that the HP screen would not be effective.
Plus, the case is so large and you have to pay for everything ala-carte, ala trigger, adjustable mounting brackets, black case, etc. etc....and I was afraid of future waves.Edited by jpmst3 - 11/20/13 at 9:29am
