I have decided to finally upgrade to a projector and have narrowed it down to two, possibly 3 choices.
1) Optoma HD25e
2) BenQ W1070
But now I'm also considering the Optoma HD131Xe
All three options have 3D which is a requirement for me, but not enough of an importance for me to care about RF vs DLP Link.
I'm not too worried about lighting as the room is very dark at night and the shade is very effective in the day time.(although I almost never watch TV during the daytime)
I would like to mount it on the ceiling as far back in the room as possible.
My main question now is projector placement and if that has any effect on my projector choice. I have decided on a 115" diagonal 16X9 screen, and my room dimensions are below, along with some photos for reference.
If I used the calculator here properly it looks like the Optoma HD25e will allow me to mount the projector further back in the room:
I could not find the HD131Xe in the calculator's options but I assume it is the same as the HD25e.
The calculator does not specify mounting height, is that something I need to take into consideration?
Given that I would like the projector mounted as far back in the room as possible, does that eliminate the BenQ W1070, or did I miss something?
Between the Optoma HD25e and the HD 131Xe, is there a large difference between the two for my room, and also in terms of picture quality?
Thanks for reading!
