    Hi all,

    I have a Panasonic AE500 which I had been using for the past year or so on my coffee table with no real problems, now my daughter has started walking its become used less and less as I have to keep packing it away etc..

    Im now thinking that I should either ceiling mount it (hassle, cost, wife not happy about losing the living room light etc..) or trade\sell it and buy a plasma for the wall. The pj bulb is fairly new only 100 hours on it there bouts plus I have a panasonic screen for it but unsure what thats worth?

    I just don't know what to do help me :lease:

    Some people put them on shelves etc. Does the AE500 have optical lens shift? If so you should be able to put it somewhere permanent & out-of-reach without resorting to the ceiling (if that's a problem)...PJ :)

    Im not quite sure to be honest :rolleyes:

    The thing is I would much prefer it to go on a shelf or even in a nicely situated cupboard that I have but I can't shrink the picture enough if you know what I mean. My screen is 6ft but I need to have the pj fairly close to get it to fit on there, i've tried adjusting it but no joy. I don't know wether this is me being an idiot but anymore than a few meters away and the picture is way to big :suicide:
