How large is your room (width/depth/height)?
How far from the screen do you intend to sit?
How large of a screen are you hoping for?
What colors are your walls, ceilings, and floor?
Do you have any external light which comes into the room?
Can you change your wall/ceiling/floor color?
Can you block windows or external light sources completely?
Do you intend to mount the projector to the ceiling?
If so, can you mount it anywhere you want to?
