I also agree with the poster above that you should give it a feel on a blank wall until you know exactly what you are working with and how you will be utilizing the space. In the meantime, the image will still look pretty good.

Leaning heavily towards the BenQ TK800. A certified refurbished on eBay for $949 seems like a good price and I (hopefully) won't have buyers remorse. We get the keys two weeks from today and I plan to get cracking immediately.

I don't care that much about pixel shift but I feel like if I get a 1080 projector I'll wonder if I made the right choice every time I play a disc.

Can anyone a) walk me off the ledge or b) suggest another affordable 2160 projector that offers 3D and around 3,000 lumens?

Read some reviews
https://www.projectorcentral.com/hot...projectors.htm
Also look at throw distance to make sure you can maximize where you want the pj and seats. To be sure go find the user guide or something official with throw distance after you narrow it down. Look at bulb costs (some pjs have replacement bulbs that are under $100, some are $250), I assume since your price range is similar to mine that you may care about that. Also, put some thought and research into your screen. Have fun.

The grey looks great, but I would seriously consider painting the ceiling. I am really glad I did that with my pj. I am too lazy to figure how to embed pictures, but you can can click on my theater gallery to see some old pics with my former crappy camera (yes, I should update those)

Projecting on a blank wall also has the advantage of making the image as big as your projector can make it. You are not restrained by screen size. And if your wall is truly flat, you'll get an image just as good as if you had a screen. And much cheaper too.

Whelp happy birthday to me! Bought the manufacturer refurb w/ warranty BenQ TK800 on ebay for $949. I realized it did everything I wanted and eveything I would potentially want.

If my wife asks please tell her it was only a couple hundred bucks.

It's been a few days since I have gotten it hung and throwing light. Projector life is the best! I'm pretty much never going back.

That said, I'm still learning how to dial it in and get the best performance from it. The picture looks excellent and at 3,300 lumens I can see well enough for daytime TV.

I have the picture zoomed to perfectly fit my screen (Silver Ticket 100") but there is still about 1" of extra light outside of the edge of the velvet frame. Overscan adjustment is no help. I don't believe it's a keystone issue because the edge of light is even on all 4 sides. It's basically a good 4" of light framing the entire displayed 16x9 picture and it spills a bit onto the wall. Thoughts? Advice?
