Hi,


I have just purchased an LT85 Projector and I need help to choose Screen size.

I have two options, 45" x 80" (92" diagonal-16x9) or 49" x 87" (100" diagonal-16x9). I will use mainly for Widescreen DVD (Progressive scan) and Cable NTSC Sports (4x3 in native mode).

I will sit at 15ft from the screen.

I would prefer the larger screen because, in 4x3 Native mode, the picture would be too small with the smaller screen.

But I have reservations regarding the larger screen would be to large for the SVGA LT85.


Thanks



Antonio

Go for the 87" screen as SVGA DLP should be similar to XGA LCD and I sat 13 feet from 85" screen and it looked great without screendoor. The rule is 2x screen width for SVGA DLP which means 2X 87"=174" or 14.5' from screen. At 15 feet you should be OK :)

No doubt that the image would be better with the smaller screen, but it is really a personal preference. I'd try putting up a sheet or something and making the image each size. See which you think looks better, and expect it to be much better on an actual screen.


Thanks!
