How do you mount this projector to ceiling?

Gary Y. Li, Amazon
14 December 2010
  • Summary: I got this projector and projected to a wall. The picture looks fine. The projector mount and screen through rebate (well, I still have to pay $100+ for S&H) just came. Since the mounting holes in the projector are in the bottom, do I need to flip the projector to mount it to the ceiling? If I flip it, will the picture coming out upside down? Another question: which way is better to mount the screen? to wall or to ceiling? PS. Installed it before Christmas.

Somewhere over the Rainbow

Jonathan Cleary, Amazon

  • Summary: If you are a newbie like me, go look up the rainbow effect for dlp sets. That is the problem here. Basically, this unit uses a 3x color wheel meaning that you can these rainbows all over the place in 1080p content. And frankly, aren't you here because you want 1080p? This unit is better than the Optima H20 that you are likely also looking at in every way except what I just mentioned, but you're going to have to take that hit. I'm returning this unit now for the Optima.

Pretty good for the price

  • Summary: Returning it for the Epson 8100. I do see some rainbow effects but rarely. Colors and everything look great but this is my first projectors and I have nothing to compare to. Remember if you want to place it on the table or shelf it is not possible because of its limited zoom and non existence tilt function. I am buying the Epson 8100 so I can place it anywhere with flexibility. If you can spend 400 dollar more buy the Epson 8100.
