Ok. So After many months of lurking around, I finally pulled the plug on the HC4000. I was really torn between this and 5040UB for a long lone time. But eventually decided that HC4000 is sufficient for my needs.
Now this is my first life experience with projectors, and I am trying to be as "DIY" as possible. I am right now debating on the mounting options and screen.
My setup: Light controlled basement, with 7.5 ft ceiling. Since the basement is already finished, I am thinking if shelf mounting this projector is a reasonable approach.
My plan: To buy a Besta shelf unit from Ikea, wall mount the shelf, and then put the projector there.
The projector will be at approx 6ft height from the ground. For screen, I am thinking to get a Elite Screens fixed frame 135inch Aeon, which will be roughly 3-4 inches from the ceiling, and 18 odd inches from the ground. The throw distance will be around 14-15 feet.
What do you guys think of this installation approach? Appreciate your feedback.
