    I currently have an Elite Screens ezFrame Gray Screen that does a passable job in my living room. However, we're gonna be moving soon and the ambient light situation will be a lot worse in the new place (ie: screen will be closer to the windows and there will be more windows). Ideally I'd love...

    I know the general consensus is that ambient light viewing should utilize a grey screen to help darken the blacks, but with a higher contrast projector (such as the Panny AE-7000u) could decent blacks be achieved in an semi-ambient light condition?

    I live in NYC (East Harlem) next to a 24hr car wash so my ambient noise can be really high. But in the absence of someone going through the car wash with subs ablazing it is 54dB with no A/C and 61dB with. How about you?

    I have a PT-AE3000 Panasonic and am deciding on a screen. Options include mechanical tab tensioned (Elite or other brand) screen or a DIY custom size screen. I am looking over various options, but was looking for feedback from owners of this projector for suggestions re: the best screen or...
