    Can anyone tell me which Sim2 model has the shortest throw ratio? I'm looking into the idea of converting my garage but my Domino 20 isn't going to fill a 9ft screen at that distance (about 4 or so meters) so was wondering if any other models would be more suitable?

    Timmy C,

    The Sim2 HT500 Link has the shortest throw out of the entire range.
    You can specify any of the following lenses:

    0.64 (no zoom)
    1.2 to 1.44
    1.44 to 1.8
    1.8 to 2.4
    2.4 to 3.6
    3.6 to 5.6

    The 300 Series and the Domino 30H have a throw ratio of 1.4 to 2.4 and the Domino 20H and Domino 18 are 2.2 to 3.1

    The only Sim2 projector that could fill a 9 ft screen from 4m would be the
    500 Link with a 1.44 to 1.8 lens.
    The largest image from a Domino 30H at 4m would be 87.5 inches
