Re: Jamestown Home Theater Screen review

Grey is better suited if the room its being used in is not able to be made completely dark or the light output of the projector is not that great. Otherwise white is best.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: Jamestown Home Theater Screen review

so when you say completely dark , do you mean dark walls,floor,ceiling? and full light control

what if you had light to med gray ceiling and carpet with full light control with 90% of the time watching movies.

the other 10% you could through in day time watching and sports

projector i am looking at is the epson 5020ub?

thanks

Yes, as long as you can block out most of the outside light and make the room dark then a white screen is the best if you watch sports and other stuff with lights on then a grey screen would be better suited for the room.

Re: Jamestown Home Theater Screen review

Can the skyline Eris material be used with this frame?

Skyline Eris? There's Skyline with their own screens and there's 3M's Eris. I think you should address this question to Jamestown themselves.

The Eris material is an adhesive backed film so no, it wouldn't work.
Thanks!

Re: Jamestown Home Theater Screen review

I'm thinking about giving this company a try. How have these screens held up over time? Has the frame bowed? What type of screen material do they use?

I still have my original screen from him back in the day when he was just getting started. Its now almost 3 years old and not one issue. I have no idea what he used for a screen material but he now has the Seymour XD material posted on the website for his AT screens.

Thanks for the reply! I just heard back from James (the owner) and he said that the screen material was their own brand. The more I research them, the better the screens seem to be.
