I am considering purchasing an Optoma HD20 but I am curious as to which screen I should get. The projector will be going in my bonus room and screen will be placed about 11'6" - 12' away from viewing area. I am probably looking to get a 100" - 106" motorized screen (a LCD will be mounted to the wall behind it for everyday TV watching). This projector will only be used for sporting events, occasional video games, and movies of course.

Not counting the lights (which can all be turned off) there is 1 window in the room which can be covered fairly easily. I've been looking at Elite screens. Any suggestions would be great on what screen or screen material (matte white, maxwhite, gray, etc.)would be suitable to my situation. Thanks in advance.
Hi, I don't know if this reply is too late, but I'll answer anyway. The HD20's weak spot is its black levels, this can be partially remedied by going with darker screens such as gray. I would go with a gray screen with the HD20.

I love that this thing is still available and still stacks up against the new stuff. Interest renewed.

This is exactly my thought. I'm currently using a cinewhite screen with my HD20. Don't get me wrong the image looks really good, especially in low ambient light situations, but I wish I'd gone with a grey screen to improve the blacks.
