    Hey all,
    I am completing my transformation of my bedroom to a home cinema in the next few weeks, so the only thing left is an adjustable projector mount, such as this one http://www.avland.co.uk/sony/vplhs3/standlrg.jpg .
    I can't drill any more holes, we moving soonish so mum won't allow, so i need a mount to go behind my sofabed which can reach a height of say at least 100-150 cm to projecto over our heads and onto the screen.
    Atm i am using a fairly small coffe table which needs to go in front of the sofa bed and generally gets in the way.
    any help would be much appreciated
    fred

    "Nobo LCD/Slide Projector Trolley"

    I went this route. Excellent, really sturdy piece of kit. And a good price as well. Mines going behind seating.

    any idea how high these Nobo LCD/Slide Projector Trolleys go?
    sounding like the answer to my problems but i'd need it to go at least 40 inches high.

    Just measured it for you. Maximum height of shelf from floor is 46.5 inches.

    They are a solid bit of kit. The shelf can be tilted if this is required. The unit is on castors which have lock mechanism to stop the unit moving

    I was well happy with it at the price to be honest, alot more sturdy than I thought it would be. The staples price is £40 cheaper than I could find it anywhere else as well.

    I will take some pics of it when it is all setup.

    harrisuk,
    did you purchase it online or in one of their superstores?
    just wondering because the online site says it's for business customers only,of which i am not .
    we do have a staples in my part of the country so wouldn't be too much trouble if i could buy in store.
    cheers
    paul

    Alot of office suppliers are like this (Viking included).

    They cant proactively "Target" retail customers if they quote their price ex vat. But they will sell to anyone basically. I bought online, and next day delivery was included in the price.

    I think on the order form there was a manditory field "Business Name" I just put my name down and it went through fine. You wont have a problem.
