    Hi, I can fit both 130" 2.35:1 screen as well as 135" 16:9 screen in my room. The effective screen size of 2.35 movie projected onto 130" 2.35 screen is almost the same as 135" 16:9 screen. (in square inches 6088 vs 5888) Furthermore it will alow me to buy Sony VP-HW55ES instead of...

    Hello! About 3 years ago, I went through a lot of research before ultimately purchasing a JVC HD250. It's been a great projector, and I hate to let it go. That said, we're selling our house, and the buyers are intent on keeping our theater room intact for themselves. So, as we desperately...

    I have an Oppo 103, a Sony HW 55ES, Direct TV, and a Rotel RSP 1066. I'd like to have one remote to control the basic functions of all four. Inexpensive and simple is good.

     Currently deciding between Sony HW55ES and Epson 6030UB.  Epson seems to have the upper hand in LCD if only because it is more recent.   Before I decide, is there a new Panasonic around the corner?   This is in an open basement, 12' throw on 112 inch Elunevision 4k Reference Motorized...

    Hi all, Does anyone know what the deal is with the supply of these projectors? Mine has been on since late 2013 and my installer is telling me that his supplier has a back order list of 2000+ plus? I'm not in a huge rush because I just got my furniture for my HT this week and I have a million...

     How can one technology produce better Blacks than another unless the 'inferior' technology is shining light on the screen when it's not supposed to?   Seems to me this is a software bug not a technology limitation?   As a side I saw the Sony HW55 today and it was very impressive!  Even...

     Greetings!   Now a proper home owner, I'm setting up something I've always wanted!  Not so simple it turns out.   Room dimensions below in embedded PNG. ceiling = 79"   The 12' distance is my general available space to put a projector.  The 12' shown is from the front of the projector...

    So I am looking at either the epson 5030/6030ub , sony 55es and jvc x500/4910. They will be used in a room that has white walls and white ceiling but lights can be completely controlled. I will mostly be using for movies but I would also like to use for sports when I have people over for games...

    All: I haven't bought a projector in a long time (2005 I think) - I finally decided on HW55ES but one 'feature' that I saw that bothers me on both the JVC and the Sony is this 'high altitude' setting. As I understand the feature, it is needed above 4500 ft to ensure the projectors cool...

    Looks like ExclusiveTVs got their shipment. UPS has me scheduled for delivery tomorrow 'end of the day'. Overall it was a very pleasant transaction, the only bump being the five day delay. I see Amazon has five for the $3999.99 price tag. I hope to have it and the X4000 hooked up and playing...

    Ok, price between the 2 are not an issue, so please do not consider that in your opinion. I have had the Sony 55ES in my theater room for a week and I like it, however, I want to make sure I making the right decision. The Sony RC on a setting of 15 looks great to me along with my Darbee set to...

    It seems the official Denon dealer in Wilmington, Delaware, has a 'bunch' of them and at $3445.99 (don't forget the ninety-nine cents), free shipping and no taxes (it's Delaware), it seems like a steal. The store has been around for years and has a very good reputation. I made my purchase...

    After experiencing some issues with frame dropping with my new Sony HW55ES projector, new Oppo 103D, Directv Genie and Denon avr-x1000, I started to wonder if the order in which I turn on my components is important? Last night I went home to do some more troubleshooting of Fox's broadcast of...
