    I have no experience with projectors but would like to set up a simple home theater in our basement. I'm having a hard time analyzing how many lumens we need because of the many factors that appear to play into that decision. We have a below-ground basement with a few glass-block windows. The...

    Hello Folks, I wonder if anyone knows this. First a pet peeve, I wish sites like Projector Central would list a projectors lumens on their optimum setting (unless of course the "review" it in which case we see the lumens spread) Ex. The Panny AE8000 doesn't push out 2400 lumens on its...

    I've been having fun with an Aaxa P300 for a few months now, but most of that has been outdoors or simply finding a suitable wall/ceiling inside. Now I've gotten to a point where I'd like to fix up a fairly dedicated "theater" room. The P300 is a three LED DLP business projector rated at a slim...

    What is the LPE filter? It's a filter 12 cm in diameter that mounts on the 5010/5020. It comes with special edition "Light Power Edition" 5010/5020s projectors. It corrects the native light output of the bulb in the same fashion as the internal filter, except that it is more efficient due to...

    I have been using Black out cloth fixed frame screen for 2 years and have only used my projector for 200 Hours. I am happy with the whites but blacks are crushed. I used a gray cloth but it made the whites very dull. So I think N8 may be too dark for my setup. However, that is just me who...

    My projector (Mitsubishi HC3000) is a 1000 lumen projector which I've seen reputable reports that when 'video optimized' it's more in the 400 lumen range. I have 2000 hours on the current bulb with a new one on the way. Would this be considered a 'lower lumen' projector? In the past I've seen...
