This demonstrates that it is quite possible to enjoy big projector pictures within the comfort of your home for a budget of just $1000-. It is a much better option than trying to buy a bigger than 65 inches TV.
How dark room needs to be for Projector viewing
For Projector viewing it is not necessary to have totally dark rooms. With a projector of over 1000 Lumens, a 100 inch projector picture will look good in a room with curtains drawn. The thing to understand is that with just a 400 Lumen bright projector you can get a bright 100 inch picture if the room is fully dark. If you have projectors in the 2000 Lumen plus range, the pictures are bright and can be seen even in rooms without the curtains being drawn during daytime.
Setting up a projector at home is very easy. The following video should give you some idea of how easy it is to set up and watch movies and TV shows on a projector at home. The Epson projector model 2030 shown in the video is an older model. The Epson 2150, chosen in our budget set up above has more features like lens-shift and is also a much newer model.
