Given the risks of shorting, the hassle of finding the right parts, and the simple fact that these DIY mounts don't look as good or adjust as easily as a commercial mount (sorry guys, it's true) - is it really worth saving $150? I mean, come on, between your projector (~$1700), receiver, video source, speakers and sub, and interconnects we've all got at least $3000 in our systems. Is a 5% savings worth this? That being said, I have cheaped out on a Parkland DIY screen, but I view the $500 savings as significant.
I see your point however after I bought my PJ I was broke on fun budget. Also I get satisfaction of building my own hardware i.e. stereo stand saved $500, DIY screen saved another $500, and PJ mount saved $120. I'm looking at the whole picture. That's $1200 in DIY.
I'm not justifying my mount but it's extremely adjustable, easy to modify, and in my opinion is better looking. All well it's nice we are able to voice our opinions
