  1. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I'm brand new to the projector world and am looking for advice. I've been doing tons of research on various sites and now have my options down to 4 (i think :)). I've also bought into 3LCD versus DLP as the technology choice. I have further refined to just Epson. I may be missing on some...
  2. Screens
     Hey guys, first time poster. I've spent all day researching screens and it has been a little overwhelming. I just purchased a Epson 2030 and I'm just doing a little home theatre on a budget for the living room. I'm not looking to spend 500$ for a screen if I don't have too and I'm looking as...

     http://www.projectorcentral.com/Epson-PowerLite_Home_Cinema_2030-projection-calculator-pro.htm It doesn't give an option for how the projector is mounted. i.e. ceiling, floor etc? Why?
  4. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
     Ok the majority of the threads i have seen are really really outdated. I noticed one a few down for projector under 700. I am really looking to know which are the better brands. What should i be looking for? My price range would be about the same 700 but if it is a significant difference then...

     I mounted my epson 2030 to the wall, the right side of the screen is square, but the left side curves out. Any tips on what could be causing this? Thanks in advance!

    Okay, so I purchased an Epson 2030 as my first projector, and it's not working out. Here's the setup in the basement - ceiling is 9'8" tall, I would like the projector ceiling mounted 11-12' away from the screen, and a 110" diagonal image with the bottom edge around 24" off the floor. I...

     OK, we have some new parameters for our artist's still photo projection project that's mocked-up at  http://www.flickr .com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157640295538116/ .  The artist cares mostly about the colors showing up, not worried about having the "dark background" you see in the...

    I'm interested in the Epson 2000 or 2030 and find lots of places to buy them including Best Buy... But where can I actually see one demoed? Best Buy just looked at me funny when I asked why they didn't have one on display. Would anyone walk in to see a $1000 flat panel without seeing it first...

     Would you be able to explain how to obtain a good image while playing a DVD on my PS3 using my newly purchased Epson 2030? The image is not only too bright but also jittery and gives a rainbow effect on some shiny lines. Thank you! [email protected]

  11. DIY Screen Section
    I'm turning half my garage into an entertainment room, for both watching movies/tv (some 3d content, but not often) and playing video games (not in 3d, as that will not likely work with steam in-home streaming). The walls will be painted a medium gray, valspar "ocean storm", the ceiling a much...

     Hello all,   I am looking to set up my first projector for my apartment, please bare my ignorance. I understand that it also depends on my room, but I'm not looking to set up anything too complicated. I want something that displays as clear as an HDTV. Is there a cheaper alternative than the...

     My TV is on its way to failure. I'd rather buy a projector now then buy another tv, even though my current room is on the small side which is 12x19. I'm considering a screen in the 90 inch range. I'd like to sit as close as 12', but possible as far as 15'. I'm curious if any of you have sat...

    A little background. I need a projector for my basement the room is ~17x24 (8.5' ceilings) that I will be using as a bar/theater room. We will be watching 40% TV/Sports, 40% movies, 20% or less games. The room has one window in the back of the room, but it is located under a deck so the ambient...
  15. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I need a recommendation on a projector. I don't even know what questions to ask. A basic model I guess. I just want to watch movies and football occasionally. Does the size of the screen dictate the projection need?

     Hey there all, I am new to much of this, but did do a lot of research before my purchase of the Benq W1070.  I had it side by side with an Epson 2030 and the DLP picture was far superior.  However, I am unfortunate that I see the dreaded "rainbow effect"...pretty significantly.   I have it...

     First off I'd like to thank such a great community here at AVS.  I have followed a lot of threads since I started finishing our basement about a year ago knowing that I would be adding a projector down there.  Our basement will be more of a media room not a true home theater.  There is a lot...

    So I just purchased the Epson HC2030 projector and I'm loving it, first projector I've owned. I need some help connecting all my sources to it, I have a PS4, Xbox 360, and a directv genie box. The projector will sit about 12-15 feet away from the wall once I mount it. So far I've thought of 2...
