Why buy an expensive screen:huh: Expensive screens do not give any more detail to a projected image than a white painted wall.Screens are not magic.Expensive screens give a brighter image depending on their gain. But,the brightness of modern projectors is not a problem compared to the antique vidicon tube projectors.(they had their place years ago,along with turntables and records).I have compared Matt White painted walls to expensive screens and it is not worth the money, if one has to spend money they should upgrade their speakers, as speakers are the weakest link in home theatre.Kind regards alan.

Thanks for your opinions about the screens. The most detailed and colour saturated movie i have ever seen was at my mates place. He is a professional projectionist . He was projecting a 35 mm film onto a white painted wall,carbon arc light source. He had a chimney to let the fumes out side. he explained to me that the theatre screens had to have a screen gain due to their enormous size .At home no need for a screen if viewed in the dark.He also told me 35mm is 3000 lines , The best electronic projector is about 1000 lines, no doubt they will get there in time,if North Korea doesnt start making the world its target. Sleep with one eye open.kind regards alan.

Norpus, People (in general) should use their brains and not listen to the sale pitches of a lot (not all) of crook sales men in the av industry wanting to flog a lot of useless expensive gear such as , monster speaker wire, 3000dollar screens, etc .This Home Theatre Shack Forum is good . One can make others think , and maybe they wont get riped off whilst purchasing home theatre gear.Projector is-- Acer PH110 and plaster painted with white ceiling paint is my screen . Even my projectionist mate said "not a bad picture for a very low outlay." kind regards alan
