    Hi,

    I've been using my 4805 sitting on the coffee table for months (and loving it) but would like to get it ceiling mounted.

    Can anyone recommend a professional installer? I live in the Malvern / Worcester area.

    I would do it myself but with a young family and busy work life I just don't have the time. I'd also prefer to have an electrician handle the electrical aspects, including removing the existing ceiling light and fitting wall lights.

    My second question is can anyone recommend a ceiling mount? Are the machine specific mounts (e.g. for 4805) better than universal? I've been tending toward universal in case I later want to upgrage the projector.

    Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

    Steve.

    Hi,

    In the end I bought a Vogel's Universal EPC4010 and I'm very pleased with it. I got it from a place in Germany via ebay at a pretty good discount. The store is here:

    http://search.stores.ebay.de/TSN-Versand_Vogels_W0QQftsZ2QQsaselZ17200367QQsatitleZVogelQ27sQQsofpZ0

    However the guy told me that he was going to have to raise his prices due to pressure from his supplier.

    For installation I found a local electrician who did a really good job (inlcuding fitting new wall lights to replace a ceiling light), although I did all the measuring up of where to site the projector to get it central and correct screen size.

    Good luck!
