I've been wanting to setup a projector in my apartment for years. I figure now's the time, and have decided on the BenQ W1070. I'm trying to figure out how big the picture will be on the wall. Using the calculator below, I've set:
- zoom to 1.00x
- aspect ratio to 16:9
- throw distance to 140 inches
The calculator says the picture will be 93 inches wide and 52 inches tall. That sounds wayyy too big. Am I doing something wrong?
Other than moving the projector closer to the wall, how can the image be made smaller?

Hey everyone, I was mulling over the idea of getting a new T.V around 55" or so.
I then stumbled into looking at projectors and have almost decided that I must get one, aside from some concerns and questions I am hoping to get answered.
First things first, about the room. It'll be going in a bedroom but I will be moving it to a living room eventually.
The room is fairly light with light walls and a white ceiling, I intend to buy blackout blinds because the normal ones allow light to reflect off my T.V during the day which is annoying! So they should darken the room a bit but even in the dead of night the room is never pitch black, albeit it is dark and would be dark enough for a projector, at least I think so. But bearing all this in mind would a white or grey screen be better?
Main use is for PS4 gaming, I want the best gaming setup I can achieve. Also occasional films but gaming is the number 1 priority.
I sit about 8' back from a 40" T.V atm and intend to display on a 80" screen, Would the distance/screen size be ideal to get the best quality and the full immersive effect without having to look about the screen to see everything going on to much?
Projector I've been looking at is the Benq w1070, it has excellent reviews all round and seems like a great buy for beginners, is £500 for this better that a T.V around the same budget?
Also found this screen today: http://www.amazon.co.uk/PCW80MM-80-P...ct_top?ie=UTF8
Cheap and looks nice in a picture someone attached in their review (they were also using the BenQ).
Just really looking for any help and advice from people with more experience than me as I've never considered projectors until this last week or so.
Thanks for any help.

Hey guys. Looking for some input here. A few months ago i purchased this wonderful projector and have a nice setup now. Picture is crisp, clear, and bright. The only issue i am having is that when i display my Bell Fibe PVR on it, almost every channel does not fill the screen entirely, and most are different from one to the next. And to be clear, i don't mean that the screen isn't filled, i mean that it's full screen except for a thin black bar at the top (not anywhere near what you would get with a BR disk) but just enough to leave anywhere from 1-2cm, enough to be annoying. All other sources such as ATV2, RaspberryPi2, and PC through HDMI work fine and all scale to 100% of the screen. Everything is going through my HTR, so i don't believe it is that that is causing the problem. Anyone else experience this? I'll try to post pictures later.

I just setup my new projector but my projection onto the screen is angled. The right side is higher than the left and it seems like the picture is angled oddly. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
It seems like the upper left corner is leaning and it's very annoying.
