Re: What's screen should I buy?

Best case is a black pit for watching movies, but a lot of sports in a controlled ambient light room. If you work from the worse to the best, what should I look for? Grey because of the ambient light or matte white with grain?

Re: What's screen should I buy?

Can you really tell much from small sample? Also, using an A/V sub on new construction limits me. Another factor that determine screen choice is in 3 years I want to build a stage and put in my 11.2 system (prewired) and a AT screen. So my choice not is spend $1500 for a good screen that does well in all conditions.

I've seen good feedback on the Dragonfly 120" or 133" screen, cost $1500-1600?

I've heard good reviews on the Carada Criterion Series Brilliant White screens, it's 14 gain.

I am assuming you mean 1.4 and not 14, correct?

I have the UTB Contour Da-Lite 119 inch 1.3 gain. I have the sony hw55es and I think they make a great combination. I watch movies but I also watch sports and don't want to sit in the dark al the time watching my Chicago Bears, Bulls or White Sox. Just my two cents.
