Projector needed - Distance 4.7 meters.

I am building a projector inside my living room.
Projector should be located 4.7 meters from screen.
Screen width should be more/less like 3 meters 16x9.

What projector do you suggest for Movies?
I have been looked on HD39DARBEE Optoma.

Have you ever had a projector setup before?

The screen size should only be selected after using it on a wall for a while.

Are you located in North America?

Gaming?

Seating distance?

Color of walls? Darker colored walls will help with black levels since they reduce cross reflections.

1080p or 4K?

Budget?

But what about the budget and gaming?

If the width is 3m the screen size is ~135" diagonal.
http://screen-size.info/

From 4.7m the throw ratio required is ~1.56x.

There are a few options here, depending on:
If there is gaming. If so, what genre?
Color of walls.
Type of screen fabric.
Budget.


If the room is treated for reflections a projector with good black levels can be had, like the TW9400. More expensive with better picture quality are available.
Treating the room will benefit any projector:

If the room is not treat then there are more options:
TW7400 - same as TW9400 but with poorer blacks and contrast. It has a 10GB HDMI, which means up to 4K HDR 30Hz. To reach 60Hz for gaming and some streaming services, the bit depth must be dropped to 8bit from 10. Can be done with a PC/Shield, HDFury Linker, or other box/external device.

Epson HC3800: brighter than the TW7400, but the TW7400 has better picture quality. 18GB HDMI.

Optoma UHD52ALV/UHD370x/UHD380x. These have a throw ratio of up to 1.59x, so you should measure the distance exactly to make sure you're withing specs. Similar in brightness to the TW7400. 18GB HDMI.
The distance should be lens to screen.

The Epsons have mid 20ms lag, the Optomas have 60-80ms lag.
Epsons have dynamic iris, for better black level.
Optoma are sharper.

If you're going to use the same mount, check what weight it's rated for since the TW7400 / 9400 is ~13kg.

The biggest impact on the choose is your budget. If you want to spend < 2000 USD, you could also wait for a good second hand top projector. I would prefer a high end projector of 2-3 years old above a new entry-model projector any day.
