Best non 4K Projector
« on: March 11, 2018, 12:49 »
hi...

Looking to get a projector very soon. Would appreciate some recommendations. Likely a non 4K for budget reasons (unless there is a 4K version priced very close to non 4K).

What’s your thoughts of the below options:
- Epson EH TW6700
- Sony VPL - HW 45

Any other models worth considering compared to the above?

Also, can someone share where I can get a bracket for the projector and how much it cost?

:)

Epson 9300 for ease of placement
BenQ W1700 if you can work with lack of lens shift

Both do a good job with UHD and HDR

What are the estimate cost of the 2? And can you elaborate what you mean by ease of placement and lack of lens shift? Thks

Not sure of SG pricing. Here in Australia it is about 4799 and 2499 RRP respectively.

If you don’t really understand lens shift it might be a bit too early to narrow down choice of projectors.

You need to know where you are putting your projector. Where you intend to project onto. How large an image you intend to project onto. What screen material you intend to use.

There’s a lot of questions you need to address.

And then you can then choose which projector will be able to project to the area and size you want when placed in the space you intend to mount it.

For what it’s worth, I’d visit a specialist like Sound Decisions and get them to help you spec out your system.

Hope to achieve 100” or 110” fixed screen. 120” would be great if possible. Lens to screen should be 3600 and seat to screen is 3200.

Thoughts? Thks

Where is projector mounted? Pointing at middle of screen? Or placed higher than screen?

Finally also depends on what brands of Projector you are using as they got different spec and zoom.

make sure your projector can be located right in the center of the screen horizontally, else horizontal len shift is required, which will significantly limit your selection.

Will be from ceiling on a bracket. Center of screen horizontally...
