Hello all,

I made my decision about my prj at last. It will be a Mitsubishi HC3100U (the new, enhanced version of the awarded HC3000)

I take the calculator should work as well, but here's my question: how comes the HC3100 throw looks so shorter than HD1000U's?

My throw distance is 16.4 feet from screen, for a 113 inches picture. If you take a look at the calculator, HD1000U manages it very well, every thing is INSIDE the green area

HC3100 looks outperformed, the cursor falls on the yellow area wich to me means not optimal at all...

Ok, i could use the zoom (but does it decrease picture quality as keystone does?)

Or I could get a higher screen gain. Actually if I set gain to 1.4 or 1.6, the green area moves and gets closer to my needs, but the standard here in italy is around 1 or 1.2 gain (unless you don't want to rob a bank to get the money for the screen)

A friend told me " do not care of those coloured areas, the 3100 will blast that throw with an impressive performance anyway"

Anybody may reassure me please???

Thank you all guys

AFAIK this projector is new to this forum, but anyone wishing to read a review of the HC3100U visit the Cine4Home website:

yes, you are right, it is new and no review, maybe the hc3100 is out for the european market only, not sure

That's why I had to mention the hc3000. But I don't think the optics and throw specs differ that much...


Anybody got any advice?
