The Panasonic came yesterday, so I put it on the back of the couch just to try it out. I hung the Do-able board by two screws into wall studs.
So my disclaimer is this is my first projector so I don't have much to compare it to. I have a friend with a CRT that I haven't watched much lately and I recently went to a fellow AVS members house to see how is projector looked (Joekoz, BenQ PE8720, Carada screen).
With that out of the way..... it was gorgeous. In fact, I was giggling with excitement.
Going to the projector has involved a lot of room changes since all my equipment was in a cabinet up front. Everything has been moved into the closet so I had to drop wires and install two new AC outlets as well as clean all the crud that was in the closet (VHS cassettes from the early 90s).
Of course I plan to trim up the Do-able board, add a black frame, and fasten the board more securely to the wall, but that will come after I get my sound fully reconnected and get the room back into order (I have tools strung throughout the AV room and hallway... my wife is only so understanding
With the lights off, the screen looked good. Whites were very white, blacks were good, although not perfect. Eventually I will work on the rooms reflected light, but overall I am happy with my $13 investment. Very happy.
On a general screen note...... how far up are people mounting their screens?. My eye level is about 1/4 of the way from the bottom of the screen (the bottom of the viewable area is 28" from the floor). At my viewing distance of just over 11 feet, I don't think I would want the screen any larger than 90".
The pictures are raw with just cropping and resizing done to them.
With full lights and camera flash to see the Do-able.
