    Currently I have a 110” DIY 4” mdf frame wrapped in black velvet screwed to the wall. I’ve used N7 grey paint on the drywall. The picture and frame are awsome. I've had this setup for the last 3-4 years now. I’m thinking about taking the frame down, patch the wall and build 120” frame 4”...

     I see that my optoma only has does not have optical audio but has a light blue jack (audio out) and seems to have light green jack as well but i think its for vga. I looked at the manual it says optical and digital  coaxial are better for sound. Is this a digital coaxial connection? I went...

    I currently have an Optoma HD65 with a few hundred hours. Great projector but i want to upgrade to 1080p. My budget is really around $700 which means using Amazon and Ebay.

    Which projector should I buy? I'm torn between the allegedly 2800 lumen Optoma HD25e or the allegedly 3200 lumen Optoma HD25-LV. I'm going to be projecting onto a 150" ~1.0 gain Elite pulldown screen in a light controlled room. I want my projector to support that size well. I'd also like to...

    Hello All, First post on this projector. I researched and compared and tried to dig out specs for several months before finally pulling the trigger on this purchase. I was really torn between this and the Benq W1070, having never seen the Benq and only reading about better black levels on...

  10. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I've decided to get an HP screen for 3D. I'm getting a Mits 7900 for just 3D and I'm gonna just use it on a stand when I watch 3D so I can get the projector at around eye level. I also own the JVC RS4910. This projector is ceiling mounted at a height of 6.5 feet and is 12 feet away from the...

    I recently replaced my projector with the Optima HD25e and I saw diagonal moire lines. I spoke to a rep at Elite who told me to move my projector back and zoom in the lens. My problem is that I can't move the projector back (which is currently at 14') without needing a larger screen ( I...

    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...

    My local film society is using a still-working-fine Sanyo PLV-70 projector (1366x768, WXGA) and an also-still-working-fine Oppo 971H DVD player. We project onto a zero-gain 130" wide (155 diagonal) screen from about 21'. We normally have about 40 people in attendance. We use a community center...

     After a lot of deliberation, I just placed an order for a BenQ W1070.  Was confident with my decision until I read this excerpt from a shootout review between the W1070 and W5000   "This extra light output is most useful when watching 3D movies, where the W1500 will be able to support larger...

    Hey guys   So I'm facing a bit of dilemma in terms of which projector to go for for a home theatre setup.  This is my first projector..   Here is my situation: - Short throw if ceiling mounted (3.3m) - Decent throw if I do floor mount from a shelf (4m) - Sunny living room (plan to watch mostly...

    I was all set on buying the HD131XE but am also planning on buying a VAPEX electric drop down screen. Unfortunately, there is no a trigger output on the Optomoa for the screen. I guess this isnt a deal breaker, but any suggestions for a comparable model that has the trigger? THanks! Quinn
