Needing advice on first projector.
I've decided to take the plunge into the projector world now that our basement living area is finished. Prior to getting the sheet rock hung, I went ahead and ran power and conduit for HDMI to the ceiling in preparation for the projector, which is roughly 12ft. from the screen wall. Based off my ceiling height, I am planning a 120-135" screen, but that isn't set in stone by any means. As for the room, it is not a dedicated theater room, and will be used as a general use area, it has white ceilings and light walls, but no exterior windows and measures roughly 24ft.x24ft with 8ft ceilings. All my setup calculation for the room were done using the Optoma UHD50 as the "planned" projector, but I'm not set on that unit. I would like to stick around the $1,500 range, but am willing to go higher if it's warranted. Primary use will be watching movies and TV, with the possibility of a game console in the future. I currently have a 4k player and AVR, so would like a 4k display but 3D isn't a must.
Thanks in advance.
