There are many things to consider about the home projector in order to get
the best possible experience. While some people believe that throwing more
money at the problem will fix it, optimizing the home theater experience
can be done without spending a fortune.
There has been extensive coverage about buying cheap projectors, DIY
projectors, and many other means by which you can save money on a home
theater system and still enjoy a quality experience. How to get the most
out of your projector without spending a lot of money is an important thing
to think about.
Not enough can be said about mounting. Proper mounting is very important.
But how can that save money? Mounting on a shelf unit often results in dust
build up. Keeping the filters clean and making sure that there is plenty of
airflow will help you to avoid over heating the projector causing damage
which is costly to repair.
Selecting the proper screen is very important. Not only do you want to get
the right screen to fit your home projector needs the first time (Rather
than having to purchase another one for more money) but you need to get a
screen that is suitable for the location where it will be mounted. Is the
screen easily cleaned? If it is soft fabric, will it rip or tear? If it is
something that will be easily damaged, can it be stored while not in use?
Screens can be built with protection as well. Using an “artsy” type cabinet
covering with pictures, or even a painting of some sort will prevent the
dust buildup on the screen, lessening the need to clean it with the
potential of damaging it. It will also prevent any ripping, tearing or
other damage that may occur to the projection screen due to unforeseen
Make sure that the mounting is such that the projection unit does not get
bumped or jarred a lot. Constantly bumping or moving the projector can
cause many problems that are costly to repair. The filaments in the head
lamps are very fragile, much the same as a mantle in a lantern is.
Constantly jostling or bumping the projector will severely shorten the
lifespan of the bulb. This will result in costly replacements that should
not be needed so frequently. Frequent bumping also causes electronic and
circuit boards to lose connection or come loose. This can create the need
for costly repairs as well.
Are the optic lenses being adequately protected when they are not in use?
The projector optics can be a very expensive replacement part. Lens covers
are important. Even if they do not come with the projector when it is
purchased, they are well worth the price. Quite frequently, spending a
little money up-front can save a great deal of money in unnecessary
expenses later on.
Building a small container, especially for shelf mounted units can offer a
unique custom-design and look for the user, and perform vital functions as
well. Inclusion of computer fans and a power supply at a very nominal cost
will insure sufficient airflow to prevent overheating and prevent much of
the dust and dirt from getting into the projection unit where it could harm
the optics as well.
An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure if the desired
effect is to get the most out of a home projector system without spending a
