    HI,

    I have been reading the forums and someone posted this great link but I can't work out how to use it. I may just be being thick but its making my head hurt.

    http://panasonic.co.jp/pavc/global/projector/calc/html/aspct169/ax100.html

    Can someone please help? My PJ is 210cm from the wall and about 216cm off the floor. I think I need a 160 cm x 90 cm screen.

    Can anyone advise me please much appreciated.

    I checked it with projector central's calculator and it comes up with just under 160cm x 90cm for the AX100 at 2.1 metres.

    I find it easier to use....couldn't figure out the one you posted.:D

    I don't know how close you intend to sit, but 77" (177cm) diagonal doesn't seem very big for a projector. On the bright side (literally!) you'll be able to watch it in broad daylight just about.:thumbsup:
