I figure if I'm in the lower third of the throw I have wiggle room back and forth a bit.


Last thing, do you measure "from the lens" literally or from the front of the case of the projector? Like the lens is an inch depressed into the case. Is that the ACTUAL start where you measure from?
Measurement is from the center of the lens.
I'm not sure if the depression is taken into consideration, probably is from the vertical plane that the end of the case is.

LE: when using the zoom, the length of the cylindrical objective can move back and fourth.
That dimension is not noted in the manual.
So it's probably where the center of the lens would be if it were touching the case wall.

Also, the closer a projector is, the brighter it will be.

LE2: I think I mentioned it before, there is an side effect of projectors with color wheels called RBE/Rainbow Effect. Only some people are susceptible to seeing it.
The Viewsonic has a color wheel. Could try it and see if there is an issue.
It shows up as strobe lights, on bright parts of the screen.

Elite and Silver Ticket screens are some of the most recommended budget/decent quality.

There is a thread for Elite screen if you want to read, but that screen if fine:

Perfect. I think I'll go with the Silver Ticket. It has thousands of good reviews and is only a few bucks more.


My room is a light grey with a dark wall where the screen will be but will only be used at night in basically black out conditions. I think I'll stick with the white screen rather than grey. I just want the deepest blacks that I can get, not looking for ultra brightness.

A grey screen might work since that is a short throw projector. A grey screen would be better for blacks, but will affect the top bright highlights.
Samples can be ordered and be compared.

Grey vs white screens thread here:
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/23-sc...op-whites.html

LE: Should have recommended this earlier, but paints are also an excellent option.
The entire wall could be painted so there is no need to worry about screen height, etc.


LE2:There are 4K projectors that can throw a picture from a closer distance, they're called UST projectors.

Hi guys... need some bit of advice here.

I've been trying some different mixes of paint for my pull down screen, there's been like 4 coats since I adjusted the lens focus of my Projector, and I will settle after 2 more coats of the paint that finally won me over. So... my question is, Do I have to focus again my projector because thickness created by all the coats, or am I just been silly? I mean..the screen feels basically the same thickness as in the beginning, even the texture is still there. Am I overthinking it?

Thanks in advance!
