    Hi,

    Highly recommend the Themescene H30, just need to see one to believe how good this unit is, it will fit well within your budget and allow for a screen and some good quality cables.

    Thanks guys for reply.
    I checked out the sanyo z1 and panny 300 for the screen size I can get. I will get about 77" diagnol without zoom. Are people going for 100" or the biggest they can get in a room so does anyone go for 200".
    I have another room I can put it in 6mx5m but would prefer the smaller room. would probably swap between the two every now and again.

    Whats the viewing distance from screen to seating? You want that between 1.5 and 2 times the screen width... Bigger not neccessarily better, as if you sit too close to a too large screen you'll see picture issues.

    Hi UnderGD,

    My room is the same size as yours. I have the AE300 projecting about 79" diagonal and sitting about 8 feet from the screen.

    This is perfect for me.
