Help finding new projector

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My room is 14'7" back from screen with 20' vaulted ceilings. I have a shelf at 14'7" and could mount PJ but not in middle of room or raise shelf. Room has controlled lighting.

Throw is a big deal here. I watch a good amount of movie channels, HBO, SHowT, Max etc.
I like POP!

I had the PH530 but had to return b/c of reset issue and colors got jacked, never looked the same. Not sure if I want to gamble on that again.

My first choice would be Marantz 4001 but its short throw and dont think it will work well with my setup. Meaning 14'7" back and huge picture without enough lumens for the distance or image will suffer. Maybe Im wrong.

SHARP 12k, no hdmi, hmmmm but is Long throw. Wont take 480i over dvi, I use a HTPC and set resolution 1:1, would this be a problem? How bright really? Noise? 1 yr warranty.

I have never owned a LCD but looked at Benq w500 but affraid it doesnt have POP like DLP.

HD70 could work but think it may display not so good in darker scenes. Not enough brightness and maybe a little soft.

I LIKE POP!

Mits 1000u but has alot of light leakage (hitting floor) and color halo's I read.

Sammy 710ae looked pretty dim.

AX200u, lcd, Iris fixed?

I would try Mits 1000u but the light leakage thing scares me off.

Any knowledge appreciated.
Thanks

How about the Epson Pro Cinema 810 ? Very easy setup and a great picture.
