benq 2050 ceiling mounting

So as I understand it the 2050 doesn't have horizontal adjustment only vertical. So that means if I ceiling mount I must have the lens exactly in the middle of the screen for it to properly fill it. How perfect does it have to be. Any way to fix if it is a half inch off. 100 in screen is what I am using.

You can buy a mount that allows for side to side adjustment or you can hang your screen from a mount that allows the half inch side to side.

Most projector mounts, even decent ones, only allow for pitch and roll although all mounts at least allow you to re-attach the projector to the mount for a little bit of flexibilty. Some high end mounts get really fancy but I doubt you want to drop a couple benjamins on a mount for a sub $1k projector.


I use the stock BenQ mount for my 2050. Nice looking and cheap but zero horizontal shift. I just measured carefully. If I was off by too much my silver ticket screen is easy to slide left and right on it's rails. As it turns out I was off by an inch or so, maybe less, according to my laser pointer. It's impossible to tell. If I hadn't had the laser pointer I'd swear I hit it precisely.

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

Thanks for your replies. I guess I'll be getting a laser.
