I just recently put one up, and it absolutely killed at 170" on a extremely dark gray painted surface. The ONLY thing it does not have going for it is a absolutely pristine, "pixel-grid free" image at a distance of 24" or under from the screen. But 4'? It's just not there. The JVC on the other hand has no such limitation.

And that is very important if your going to be sitting 2' from the screen.

BTW...PM me because I might have access to a x500 new at a used price.
I already have an X500. Eventually I might go for an X5000, but I just don't have the budget right now as I recently bought a used set of MK MP300 LCR speakers, half the new price, but that's still not cheap...That's why I've been looking into DIY screens.

BTW, I'm in the UK, so I guess it wouldn't work out anyway even if you meant you had access to a new X5000 at a used price.

Nope. But you'll get there, I'm sure!
