    What are you calling short throw, what size screen do you want to achieve and what throw do you have available and what budget is allocated and do you want 720p or 1080p and 3D.

    You can get short throw projectors that will give a 100" diagonal from a throw of 10-12ft, if you want bigger screen or shorter throw they are really called Ultra short throw projectors.

    Optoma do a couple of UST that will give you 100" from perhaps 6ft throw, but these are 720p machines.

    Can't you mount it close to where your opt 750 is atm or are you having a change around.

    Sorry about the delay - Looking for 1080p and 3d and would like to mount in the same location as the Opt 750

    I was thinking about a BenQ 1080st

    kbfem,

    we are fixed to the ceiling and are 1.9m away from the screen, we have about 100mm play so can reduce to 1.8mm

    I think for that throw ratio and the features you want your only choice is the BenQ W1080ST Projector
