Still, the darker the room, the better the picture quality. When it comes to contrast, a projector needs darkness to make an image that looks bold, not washed out. ... If you're willing to put up blackout curtains or shades, nearly any room in your home will work.
The first benefit of buying a short throw also happens to be one of the most obvious: less room between the projector and the screen means less room for people to get in the way of the projectors light. The shorter the throw, the less chance someone is going to ruin the shot.
