So I unscrewed my old ACER XGA who had suffered a massive dlp chip failure with getting a couple more mirrors stuck each evening and just came back from warranty repair and with some modifications screwed the Epson on to my trusty projector ceiling mount.
This mount is with me since over 10 years and is the best $7 I ever spend on a mount.
So far it carried 2 NEC VT series, 1 BENQ, 2 ACER and a big Sony VPL-HS10.
I got if from Walmart and it is a speaker wall mount.
|this mount is pretty stable, it turns on the center mount screw and swivels on the speaker mounts|
|40 cm or shy 16" is as close as you can get to the wall|
|4.03 meter or 13.3 feet from wall to the projection screen - that makes 3.63 meters projecting distance|
Using the full 2.1 x zoom the exact distance of 2.74 meter or 9 feet of my wall opening is covered with the projecting image.
