I don't have many friends 6'4" or taller but I have lots of friends and family members who are over 6'1" so the size is definitely concerning to me. My Chief mount only comes down 4" from the ceiling so there's not much flexibility..
Dang these new JVC's are big. And heavy.
You could always build a nice shelf mount like I have. See my avatar. My current shelf mount supports 2 projectors, but the bottom layer comes off real easy for when I only will have just one projector some day. This brings the projector up to like 1" from the ceiling sitting on the shelf. Super easy to swap projectors just slide old off shelf and slide new in. No fiddling with some mount, hoping holes line up, worrying about why it's hanging 4" down when it doesn't need to etc.
