So during my hours upon hours of lurking the forum I think I have only further confused myself on the choices for what I should use for my screen. Before I go any further on my thoughts I will answer some questions I found in another thread.•Will it be for a dedicated Theater, or Family Room use?
Not a dedicated home theater but more of a media/game room. It will only be used for movie watching, gaming(Wii), and sports. Not ever day TV•Will lighting be controlled, directed, or absent altogether during viewing?
Lighting will be somewhat controlled but ambient light could be an issue.•What color are the Walls, and the Ceiling?
Walls behind PJ is a dark purple, on sides are a dark gray, ceiling is still build tan but may end up being painted.•Where (how far from the screen) will you sit?
About 12' can move back some but don't want to more than about 2-3 feet•What will the majority of your viewed content consist of?
It will only be used for movie watching, gaming(Wii), and sports. Not ever day TV•How big is your room? Dimensions?
17' x 23' 23' is the projecting length, looking at a throw of between 11-13' as athe max for my PJ•How big of a Screen would you like?
would like 120"
•Are you rollin' in dough...or just as cheap as most all of us?
I'm cheap for sure
Projector EPSON 705HD

I was originally thinking a spandex screen just because it would be easy to create. I screened my entire back porch using the screen tight system and I am very familiar with it. However, I don't have a need for an AT screen. I would like to maximize the good attributes of my PJ and minimize the bad.
So from what I have read, the PJ is extremely bright but has contrast issues. Should that point me in the direction of a gray screen particularly when ambient light could be an issue?
I have begun looking into substrates and painting for that reason above. I called around to the sing shops in my area and Sintra at the 6mm 5’x10’ size is hard to come by.
I have just started exploring using Wilsonart Laminate for a screen. Would my PJ be to bright for use with Wilsonart and cause hot spotting?
Like the title says.
