Is it a pulldown screen, pull up screen, or in-cieling mount?[/quote]
It's a pulldown. My original intent was to replace it with a stationary/fixed one, but I see no point now. ...

I have an Epson 8350 with a 100" screen. I love it, and I've gotten a lot of compliments. I was actually really surprised how well it looked once I had everything set up.
Depending on your set up, you should definitely be able to get a good projector for $1,000. My suggestion is that you use the ...

I have an Epson 8350 and I love it. I have a base level pull-down screen from Best Buy and it works great. One factor that you will want to strongly consider is projector placement. My room is very long so throw distance was very important to me. The Epson was very flexible with placement, so that w...

If the dog goes inside, make sure you treat any carpet and upholstery. Use something with an insect growth regulator. Also, vacuum real well then vacuum again two days later. Combined with a good flea med like comforts, a yard treatment and mowing, you should be able to knock them completely out wi...
