Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster
I recently picked up a non working Epson 8350 (US model, I live in Australia) projector for $50, long story short it was a little servo motor and I have ordered a replacement part for $5 off ebay so that is all sorted now.
Now my plan was to get the projector all sorted then throw it up on the wall and see what size screen looked good etc etc.
Anyway I have impulse bought a screen technics 92" fixed screen from a guy nearby off gumtree, I picked it up for $150 and it is in perfect condition so I though it was too good to pass up.
Now the details are:
View distance from screen: 2.95M
Maximum throw distance from projector lense to screen: 2.8M
Now I have done a bit of a calculation on projector central and to me it appears that if I put a 2.8M throw distance in it gives me a max diagonal screen size of 69" (I will talk in imperial regarding screen size as it is easier to relate in my opinion) however this I believe is right in the middle of the possible zoom ratio's? Would I be correct in assuming that? If I look at the throw range in the top right it appears if I zoom out I could get to a relative 4.38M?
If I am correct in my thinking and type a 4.38M throw distance in it shows a 100"+ screen size.
So am I reading all this correctly? I am a projector newbie so this is all foreign.
Also any opinions on full 1080p content from 3m away?
I would only watch 1080p content, no lower quality source material.
Thanks for any input guys
