    Hi all, I am currently stuck between the Epson EMP-TW10 and the Hitachi PJ-TX10, the Hitachi gets slightly better review results but has been around longer while the Epson comes with a 3 year next day warranty which seems appealing, my concern is that my house has high ceilings, I need to ceiling mount but can only bring the projector down to a level where the lens in level with the top of the screen, the Epson has electronic keystone while the Hitachi has manual and electronic adjustments, the ceiling mount I am considering also has three way adjustment, am I reading into this too much or is this a problem.

    Get a longer ceiling mount as Keystone degrades picture quality. The 3 way adjustment will allow you to fine tune the set up...

    Chilly,
    I have the PJ-TX10...the manual lens shift (vertical and horizontal) gives you soooooo much versatility with the placement/mounitng of the projector. Optically, I'd guess the Epson and Hitachi are about the same. If you have mounting issues, I'd go the for PJ-TX10.

    Hope this helps.
