1.200 lumens for a 92" screen in a dark room?
 
Hey, guys, a Spaniard over here.

First of all, congratulations for the forum and the community.

My wife and I have bought a house and one of the rooms are going to be a small cinema. The dimensions are 4 x 3 meters. The room will be partially conditioned, with dark walls but a light roof. The screen will be 92" white.

I'm thinking of buying the Epson TW5600 which has in eco mode and calibrated approximately 1200 lumens. I will project at 3 meters with ceiling mount.

The fear I have is that 1200 lumens may be too much for this screen size and the light reflections will make me lose a lot of contrast.

Should I worry about it? Do I buy a DLP with fewer lumens, for example the Optoma HD27e with 600 in eco and calibration mode?

Thanks in advance.

No projector is too bright as it can always be tamed by settings or a ND filter. A gray screen to lower gain is always a good option to help reduce reflections and also taming an overly bright projector.
