That said, understand that cheap mounts generally lack adjustment or, at least, easy adjustment. I like Omni mount and Peerless. But if you don’t want to spend that much I’ve also had good luck with QualGear— just understand you get what you pay for and adjusting a cheap mount can be infuriating. I actually really like the BenQ OEM mount but it’s not designed for an angled ceiling.
As for cable— just make sure whatever you buy is rated for 4K @ 60Hz IN THE LENGTH YOU’RE BUYING. An easy way to tell is to look for one with a “premium certified HDMI” holographic sticker on it. I use a Media Bridge cable— ironically one of the brands that didn’t spring for the certification— it works great but my length is only 15’. Media bridge does sell a longer length which they claim is “hand tested” to ensure 4K @ 60Hz.
Be careful with right angle connectors. They can and will reduce signal strength. My recommendation would be to not mount your projector so close to the wall. Consider you’ll also need to fit the power cable back there and that will be worse than the HDMI in terms of clearance.
Thanks for the reply, Sage11x
Not sure if you remember, I did post my concern regard the distance or clearance I will have to fill my 120" Screen, so the angle connectors I was told is a solution, also was planning to get one for the power. However just spend some time searching in Amazon for Cables (Fiber Looks Good but in the upper side $) and Angle Connectors, it bring a Concern, no one state if are HDMI 2.0b or Certified 4K @ 60Htz, nothing, no info at all. Does anyone know any Certified HDMI Cable that can be bend to fit my 2" gap from 3550 to wall ?
I know Scottyroo did post a link here to a store that he recommended, for HDMI "Certified" Cables, just can't locate the link, they also had Angles and I may call then with my concern. Making more measurements and I think the HDMI Cable after all the hoops and turns, it need to be closer to 35', Amazon have several but regard their reviews, I rather ask here
I found this one (again is upper side $) and seems to have Angles, etc.
Anyone have experience with this one and the Angles are good ?
Any brand that is recommended (not that expensive), any info will be highly appreciated.
Understand 35' is a distance that I must play safe and make sure the Cable is a good one.
Need to do any purchase by Monday, to make sure will arrive before the 3550, etc.
Thanks in advance.
