Topic:   quick projector question

quick question about projectors in general - i'm going to be living in a small space next year. the depth of the room is ~11.5 feet - not deep enough for optimal viewing an a 92" screen (without screendoor effect, i assume). what if i want a smaller screen? can i just move the projector closer, or zoom it in farther? i can deal with having an 80" screen if the image looks that much better. does the image distort when projected onto a less than optimal size? thanks. brian

Topic:   Help Me Decide Between These 2 Projectors

I've seen the Z-1 in a living room where there was some ambient light and it was still a good picture. Maybe not "optimal" but still a good picture...and both these projectors have a higher light output than the Z-1 I believe. A few months ago both of these projectors were $2,500-$3000 so I wouldn't exactly think of them as cheapos. The Z-2 got rave reviews...wish I could get some first hand thoughts on the HC3.

The HC3 originally listed for around $2,500...it's an aggressive price drop, but by all accounts this is a quality pj from obviously a quality manufacturer. I'd just like to hear from someone who has seen one to get their viewpoints on the SDE mainly. If it's not noticeable sitting 12+ feet back is what I need to find out.

Topic:   I am looking for a short throw projector

The Mitsubishi HC3 can fill an 80" 16:9 screen from 9 feet. I prefer DLP over LCD as a rule, but at $999, and with the correct throw, this might be the one for you. patriotsrright

Topic:   Anyone Own/Seen the Mitsubishi HC3?

Great deal on the HC3 and I like the light output...my only concern is the SDE and how prevalent it is. I understand the further back you go, the less you obviously see it, in general. I've heard 14 feet...but curious as to how it looks at, say, 12 feet. It's such a great deal price wise that it's hard to ignore, but I'm also considering the Sanyo Z-2 which can be had for about $300 more. I will have some degree of ambient light in the room, but plan on getting blinds and thick curtains for the windows. It will be mounted in the wall behind the couch with the screen 12.5-14.5 feet away (haven't decided on the exact placement yet, but distance will be in that range. Also taking a look at Panasonic AE700U (a little more than I'd like to spend) and Panasonic PT-L500U, as well as the BENQ PE7800 DLP model. But I'd like to stay under $1,500 on the projector.
