Re: Need Advice on proj for dedicated room
Did you ever decide?
I have some good news, some bad news and some good news.
I just obtained the Mits HC-4000 and I'm ecstatic. It replaces an Optoma HD70 (which preceded the HD20) that died. I considered the HD20 and while I think Optomas are fine machines, the Mits is a true step up for very little extra. PQ is just wonderful and it was great out of the box.
Now, the bad news. The Mits, like all DLP projectors, has an image offset. If you tried to mount it below the fan, you'll have to point it up and then apply keystone adjustment. While a little adjustment is OK, aggressive adjustment will negatively affect image quality. Is the ceiling fan a hugger, or is it pole mounted? The good news it that you have 10' ceilings. If the fan is a hugger, you might be able to mount the projector lower and still have it level. If it's on a pole I think you'd be better off just removing the fan entirely or replacing it with a hugger.
