I have a walkout basement that is light controlled, walls and ceiling are a dark chocalate brown from Sherwin Williams, think its mocha. I currently have a 112" grandview 1.0 gain fixed frame screen, and was considering buying the Sony hw40es, but with the price at 2,500 , I'm starting to consider possibly buying used. My ceilings are only 7 ft high, and seating distance can be whatever, currently around 12 -13 ft I believe. In hindsight , I was foolish to sell my 8500, thinking a 55 inch led tv would be ok for my basement. Anyway I may consider the Sony hw 40es if it drops again to 1999, but what used projectors out there should I consider if i decide to go that route.
