    Hey guys!
    I have just ordered the z2 from ivojo and a screen from drh!! Cant wait for them to arrive!!! Problem is, that I am not sure if i have ordered the right size screen??? I have a maximum throw distance of 3.1m. I have ordered the manual pull down slimline screen from drh which has a viewable area of 203cm(width) x 114(height). Have I ordered a screen thats too big?? Should I have gone for a size smaller?Please give me some advice before it is too late!!!

    The projector will be above my head hopefully, or in line with me using the lens shift. That will be a distance of about 3m clancol. Why do you ask?

    You'll be fine.

    My throw & viewing distance are siimilar to yours and I've got the smaller 173cm wide DRH.

    I'm really pleased with my set up and the experience it gives but from the Z2 is projecting pretty much the smallest image it can at that distance. There is no reason why you shouldnt go with the bigger screen as I have zoomed the image to max, just to see, and it was fine. Well apart from being too big for the screen :)
