    Projector Mounting?

    We recently got a projector (it looks awesome!, its the Optoma ones)

    But we can't actually use it properly because we need to mount it first..

    Anyone bought any from ebay?
    There's like universal ones etc? ( I even saw one on ebay for a tenner which was on play for £40??)

    Has anyone bought one - or lead me to the right direction in which I can find one under £20??

    Thank you

    where are you planning on mounting it? I had one and mounted it on a ceiling bracket, it looked pretty cool with an automatic switch on that brought down the screen from the ceiling too!!

    We want to mount it to the ceiling but no automatic switch lol

    we're not going to use a screen, we need to have some sort of swivel so we can switch between two walls..

    I think i found one but i just wanted to see if anyone else bought one from ebay.. well this one anyways Item number: 200479842473

    I was looking at ones from Amazon before, they seemed good and reasonable price.

    Cheap, good review:

    you need to make sure the holes on top of your projector line up with the one you're intending to buy, what model of optoma is it?

    O0o0o I forgot about that, so what happens when it's upside down then? so I assume theirs like settings to flip the screen ..right?
