Well, I finally bought a manufactured screen..I ordered an Elite 106" CineWhite fixed screen...I have a Epson Powerlite 2000 3D LCD projector...This will basically be a test to see if it looks better than my painted DIY screen...Do you think I will notice a huge difference in picture quality?..Will it be ok for 3D??

What was your painted screen again? Is it close to the Elite material? If so, you'll notice little improvement in picture quality if you did a good job painting your screen. The big difference between a manufactured screen and diy is the time and effort put forth to the finished product. There is very little time or effort put into a manufactured screen and the finished product almost always comes out looking very good - both picture wise and aesthetics wise.

Well, here it is, my new 106" Elite screen, all put together and mounted!!
The frame was very easy to put together, but the screen was a pain, literally!!
I must say, the picture is a lot smoother compared to my painted screen, but I don't see any real difference in contrast or picture quality.
The black felt on the frame does absorb light very well.
Overall, I am pleased with the screen and it looks great on the wall..not too shabby for $275!! :)

I couldn't imagine 106":). Back to watching my 64" plasma and dreaming of a big screen future congrats. The price seems very reasonable as well.

Thanks buddy!!..Yes, the screen and projector total was only $1,200..which is cheaper than most 65" tv's, and it's 3D as well..I think its the best bang for the buck :)
