Right folks, I'm on the very brink of buying a PJ too (drum roll please). I'm going to buy either a Panasonic A300 or Sanyo Z2 (saw a demo of the Panny in JL Bluewater (liked it) & I've yet to see the Z2, though I saw the Z1 last year at the Bristol show & I'm going again this year. However, I do have a few problems regarding where it's going to be sited. The only place it's going to be able to be sited is on top of my wardrobe (the wardrobe is unfortunately a permanent fixture & cannot be removed, it is a necessary evil, I could be forced into buying lower height wardrobes as a last resort. There isn't a great deal of space between the top of the wardrobe & the top of the ceiling either (7 3/4" max) The other problems are: The light fitting (it extends approx. 6" - 7 1/2 " from the ceiling, it's roughly 4' 4" distance way from the wardrobe) IMO I don't think this is too serious though, I'm pretty certain it will not interfere with the projector throw. The screen (which will be ceiling mounted & manual pull down) will be approx. 8' 4" to 9' 8" away (throw distance) depending on the ceiling beams, but the furthest distance will be a bigger problem 'cos. the max. Drop down size of the screen will be 4' 6" & the chimneybreast coving will obscure the fitting. The main problem is the projector siting itself. Because of the siting of it I've noticed on some other projector installs that the PJ itself is mounted upside down if it's ceiling mounted. If my PJ is sited high up (near the ceiling) would I have to do the same, or do I buy a model with lens shift to compensate? (Ceiling mount is not an option either) Have a look at the plan below A is the throw distance of the PJ B is the ceiling height C is the wardrobe depth (not really important but I put that measurement in anyway) D is the height of the space between the wardrobe & the ceiling E the depth of the light fitting (could be a problem) F will be the screen depth at max throw distance though that won't be a problem if I bring the screen closer. I'm going to be sitting roughly 8' - 9' away when I'm watching & the PJ will be exclusively used for DVD watching (will not be used that much) Larger TV/rear projection TV aren't an option either (due to the fact they will not go upstairs) Plasma is (admittedly) a more expensive option, but I want the biggest screen size I can get for a budget price. Any advice suggestions please?
