Hi,

With that high budget, I don't see any reason to buy a business projector for a home theater use. Unless you really want a laser projector. The EB-L610u is far too bright for that screen size.

Can you suggest some good ones in that budget and room size also is it worth buying a native 4k instead of enhanced 4k.

If I understood correctly, and your room is 10 x 11 feet, then maybe you should look for a short throw projector to take the most advantage from the space you've got. According to what I understand, without a ST projector you're limited to a 90" screen, because you still need space for the projector. If 90" is enough for you, I would recommend looking for a JVC X790R for the best possible image. If you can paint or cover the room in black, that would be even better.

About the enhanced vs native 4K question, many people here will be able to answer better than I can. It's a question I don't care much for, as I think 1080p is plenty for a screen of that size.

I would suggest a compact, short throw projector of some type such as the BenQ HT3550 or an Optoma UHL55. In a small room you want a projector that can throw a large 4k image of at least a 1000 lumens in movie mode, onto a 100-120in screen, while being quiet and compact.

I would buy a 85" 4K high end TV if I was only limited to a 90" screen for that kind of budget. No one makes a 4K ST projector so you are limited to UST and the really good ones are over your budget as the special screen takes up a good portion. What screen size were you considering is such a small room?

I am looking for a screen size of 110 and 120 inch screen. I was told epson eb-l610u can do 120 inch from a distance of 10 to 11 feet. Also someone suggested epson EH-TW 8300 and also Sony vpl-vw260es they also can do 110 to 120 inch from a 11 foot distance as suggested to me.

So when you are suggesting an ultra short throw projector is it that the picture quality is not highly sacrificed as compared to a normal long throw projector.

I have also seen 2 ultra short throw projector benq LH890 UST and epson EB 700U.

Thanks.

If your room is really 10 x 11 understand throw distance is from the front of the lens to the screen. Most of these higher end projectors are large and the case is 19" deep. You also need to allow for clearance behind the projector. Assuming your using the 11' space available you really only have a little over 9' front of lens to screen not 11'.

I have a room adjacent to the theatre room from which I can use a cabinet to keep the projector so in effect I can get a 11 foot from the lens to the screen.

Good this helps a lot as it would have opened up a lot of different projectors if we had known this first. You need to tell us more about the room especially the amount of ambient light and color of the walls and ceiling. What is the primary use of the room like sports, movies, gaming or TV?

You need to be careful who you listen to. When it comes to getting projection setups correct, approximations are no substitute for accurate measurements. The projection calculator shows that the closest an EB-L610U can be to a 120" screen is 11' 5" as measured from the front of the lens to the screen surface. Take your time in making a decision and pay close attention to the advice you get on this forum from folks who actually know what they're talking about.

The room has no ambient light or Windows it's basically a complete dark room the color of the walls and ceiling are dark brown. The room will be primarily used for sports and movie.

Great room for a high contrast projector. From least expensive to most. Epson 5050/6050, JVC x790r/RS540, Sony 4K (I am not up to speed on the model #), JVC NX5/RS1000. The latter two are true 4K. Personally I would pick the JVC RS540.
