    My first post :hiya:

    Does anyone have a figure for the Screenplay 4805 dB level? Or 5700?
    Have demo'd both 5700 and 4805, but the 4805 was mounted in a "room behind" location so couldnt tell how noisy it was. The 5700 I auditioned was right behind my head on a stand and found it bit intrusive. Havent found any figures on the web.

    What about the picture on eco mode for quieter running?

    Pretty much decided on a DLP model and have been looking at Themescene H57, as well as SP5700 and SP4805. Have been thinking the 4805 looks favourite as cant see the £500 difference to the other models is worth it.

    Thanks for any advice! :thumbsup:

    If you like the 4805 and cant justify the price difference try the H30 too, it's even cheaper, I demo'd both the 4805 and the H30 before choosing the H30 cos I couldn't justify the price difference between them, it's a great little projector!.

    Recently got my SP4805 and yes the fan isn't particularly quiet, but also not terrible. I'd say if you're using your projector, surely the sound will normally be up at a reaosnable volume, pretty much covering any other noise (I sit right next ot my 4805).
    But I suppose it depends whether you get distracted or even notice, I just don't notice it really.

    As for running in eco mode, I do and I think many others too. The picture is a little dimmer, but not by too much. Better to preserve the lamp.

    I had a 5700 in place for a few days but never actually got the chance to use it (wrong throw for the screen size so I got it swapped). The 7200 I now have does produce a rather intrusive fan noise but unless you are watching at a very low volume it is not unbearable. Apart from this small flaw the projector is a peach though, particularly at the £2k or so I got it for (mate's rates).

    Thanks for the replies... there are quiet passages in most films so turning up the vol not always an option!!! :rolleyes: Think I will audition again now I have a better idea of what I'm looking for... the 4805 was first audition I went to and really just popped into shop without really thinking too much!! :blush:
