I'm currently looking at an Epson eh-tw5650. Any thoughts on this?

That screen is rather small from that distance. But if it's what you prefer then great.

With an 100" diagonal 16:9 format screen, from 450cm (lens to screen), the throw ratio required would be ~2.0x.

Not many projectors have this kind of throw ratio.

The TW5650 can do it. If you can find it at your budget, get a TW6700. It's a better projector overall.
Or just increase the budget.

But if you can, send the screen back and get a new one after you've set on a diagonal.

The way to decide on the diagonal is to use the projector on the wall for a few weeks. The projector should be purchased first.

A very general ratio is 10-12" in diagonal for every foot in distance.
For 11.5 that would result in between 115 and 138".

A common mistake new projector buyers is getting a screen that is too small.

The Epsons are bright enough to handle even a larger screen.

My room is only just wide enough for a 100" and my seating position is fixed.
Seems plenty big enough when your sat in front of it.
How is the 6700better?
