    Hi guys,

    I'm looking to buy a floor-standing screen, such as the Widescreen Centre Homescreen.

    However I just learnt today that the total height of that screen is 89" (41" of which is for viewing). This sounds enormous, and practically puts the top of the screen on the ceiling.

    I have a light hanging from the ceiling, the bottom of which is 72" from the floor. So I need the top of my retractable screen to be no higher than that.

    Could anyone recommend a floor-standing screen which is no higher than 72"? Or I guess one that doesn't need to be fully retracted, so I can choose the height that I want.

    (Finally - do people commonly want their screen to be as high as the ceiling? I don't see why you'd want to keep looking up when you could just look level?)


    Thanks!


    Tom
