200 inches? That’s almost 17 feet !!! Good luck finding a wall in your home to watch a 17 foot movie on. I have a home theatre in my basement and my screen is about 110 inches diagonal. That’s plenty big for most people. Also, 600 lumens? WTF? The room will have to be pitch black in order to watch your movie. 600 lumens is nothing. My glow-in-the-dark Scooby-Doo boxers give off about 300 lumens. :stuck_out_tongue:

DukeNukem, if I remember correctly, ANSI Lumens are going to rate out a little different than just stating peak lumens. They will be an average of several points on the display screen multiplied by the screen area. It’s supposed to be a more accurate means of measuring brightness. 600 should be enough for most rooms built to handle this projector. Though I’m sure it’d be best to make it a dark room anyway. :slight_smile:
