    The Sony one is crappy and wobbly. Buy one from Unicol Mounts of Oxford. Much better.....

    Dino,
    Depends on your needs but I built my own - piece of MDF with holes through which bolts connect it to the projector (5mm bolts as I recall), 4 large coach screws from the MDF up into the ceilng jousts.

    The 5mm bolts had large washers on them to some movement of the projector left/right back/forward (i.e. the actual holes in the MDF were about and inch wide and 3 inches long, the washerd were about 2 inches wide). Up/down was simply a case of loosening one bolt and tightnening another using butterfly nuts. Total cost about £10 and very, very effective if I say so myself!

    Simple, easy and once its up you don't really see it as the projector (which hangs underneath the MDF) hides it all.

    The official mount ain't worth the money (unless you really need it).
    Paul
