In spite of my now-35-degree viewing angle, I'm considering replacing my new 80"-wide screen with a 90" of the same type. Just stupid, I guess.
Not stupid. You have balance out those speakers.

I'm glad the thread is back from the dead.

We should keep this going!! i love projectors Right now as u can see in my sig i am still on my 1st projector...It isnt HD but it can downscale HD content and it looks amazing on the big screen. I have mine covering an entire wall and its about 200 inches with the addition of 7.1 surround sound it really feels like being in the movie theater at home, anyone considering a projetor should do IT NOW! yull never regret it, its also a great croud pleaser

Although it's good thing if you have a separate room for your projector you can get a decent setup in most homes to the room that is used for something else also, usually the living room.

If you have a room 12 feet deep you can have a 100" screen. There's nothing to it but to do it!



I'm glad the thread is back!

Default Optoma HD65

I got an Optoma HD65 in June. It's a 720p projector. I'm really pleased with it.

I would like to get an 1080p projector eventually (one with a built-in anamorphic lens preferably), but as of right now, I don't have the means to get one. This one shall tide me over until I do.

I don't have much experience with projectors, but this one definitely performs very well. It was pretty cheap too. Only $1100 CAD. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a decent and affordable projector.

My room's only about 12 feet from wall to wall, and my screen is roughly 100" (I haven't measured it). I usually view from about 8 or 9 feet away, and it holds up pretty well. I do see jagged edges occasionally when I'm looking for them, but other than that, it's great.
My screen is just a white piece of plastic that my dad brought home from his work. It works quite nicely. Except that when my room gets hot, the plastic expands and warps a little, so on panning shots, the image is kinda wavey... but keeping my room cool minimizes that problem. Come winter, it shouldn't be a problem at all.

I only wish I hadn't lost the damn remote already! They're like 100 bucks to replace.
