There are no "dumb" questions, just ones that don't have much research behind them.
The Silver Ticket Fixed screens are indeed a good bargain...especially for Fixed screens. (...I've already helped a few use them as surfaces to paint upon too...) They are however just simple 1.1 gain Matte white screens, while even the lowest colorant level Silver Fire, or any RS-MaxxMudd screen is a Metallic enhanced surface that improves viewed
contrast coming off the screen, as well as improve ambient light watch-ability.
The same applies to any matte white Elite. The Stewart ST 130? That is a Reference quality 1.3 gain
White. But it also has been equaled / bested by DIY efforts as far back as 2003, so yeah...it falls right in with the Silver Ticket and Elite crowd by comparison.
...how does it rank i guess vs other screens from low to high end. I was planning on purchasing a Silver Ticket screen based on the thread in the "Screens" section. If this is a much better result maybe I'll do this. What do people do for frames for these to make them look good?
Before this goes further, it really is as important that you confer some facts about your needs and application. Projector? Room viewing conditions (Colors-Lighting)? Type of Content primarily viewed? Screen size desired?"
More information from you will be a concrete determination provided in return.
But I will state this much in advance. A well done Silver Fire or RS-MaxxMudd Screen is more readily compared to a Mfg Screen costing $1000.00s.....not $100.00s
