    Thinking of getting one of these babies for £985 Inc. VAT at pixmania but i need to get a screen as well.

    What are you using as a display screen and how much are we talking and where to buy.

    regards

    I'd advise you check out the projector calculator at projector central to see the view distances - its great as you can work out min/max sizes etc.

    I've got mine about 2.2-2.5 metres from the wall (room is pretty small) and on virtually min zoom its throwing about a 58" diagnol image. Its a short throw projector as you may already know.

    I sit around 7ft away and I find the image great - takes some getting used though moving your head as its so wide :cool:

    My screen is home made mdf fixed mount as when I looked around I couldn't find a small enough pull down screen. I think avsales have a smallish manual pull down screen now but you might need a custom size.

    My room is being enlarged so I'm moving to most likely an eletric screen (these saphire ones seem good value) maybe 66-70" diagnol.

    I suppose it depends upon the actual size of your room as of course with manual screens/electric they have a case which is larger :)

    Enjoy your PJ I know I'm having a blast with mine :smashin:
