Tall projector stand suggestions

I live in a flat which makes ceiling mounting my projector difficult.

I also have the problem that the wall on the side of my projector is an internal wall and i doubt whether it would support a projector wall mount, which is a shame.

I really want to put my projector behind my seate and obviously slightly above. Probably 1.5m from the ground at a rough guess.

My projector is a sharp z9000 which isn't the smallest dlp around.

Any sugguestions?

p.s. fairly cheap would be good.

A good shelf on the wall should be good enough to hold a 10 - 15kg load, just find the studs to fix the brackets into.

I had a friend who lived in a flat with a concrete ceiling, he hung a rope chair from his, you just need a decent drill and bit.

Any tall stand could get knocked over?

I used an open backed bookcase - although if your putting it against a wall, a closed back should be fine. Also gives you a few extra shelves for popcorn etc. Go to the Ikea webste and look at GORM or BILLY.

I've often thought the same thing, and now that I have a Wii would like to have my PJ up in the air too. But I need it in the middle of a room, not the back.

Hmmmm......bird table, tripod?

Open bookcase behind your sofa.

Sevenoaks can order in a stand, forget the name now, i use it myself.....pretty sure it can hit around 1.5m at the highest.....

downside, it aint cheap...lol

i think if you have to pay the proper price its £180.....its solid metal, flat tripod feet on lockable wheels, then two piece telescopic pole with triple grip wingnut style locking (not limited in otherwords to a few holes)....finally a plate on top which can be angled a little........expensive considering its just a load of plate metal etc, but certainly very handy.....very functional looking though....

handles vibrations well.....never notice any problems when my SVS PB12+ is going like the clappers :D

Would look odd in the middle of the room.

Not if you fill it with books :)

Here is my stand. IT was £24.99 from what was known as Index (like Argos). Also, excuse the rubbish under the PJ's.

I originally had my projector mounted in that fashion on a cheap TV (black steel) swivelling shelf. But the pj had a short throw lens so the image was always too big. I then moved houses and the lounge ended up even further from the opposite wall so I mounted it under a coffee table in front of the lounge. This had the advantage of sort of hiding it, and brought it closer to the wall so the size of the image was perfect. It's also perfeect for a flat as you can take it with you. A prerequisite of course is that your pj must have lens shift. Mine's a Z2 so that wasn't a problem. You'll probably also want a large rug to hide the cables.
