I've just delved into getting a projector. My main concerns were affordability and portability, since my residential location isn't exactly permanent, so I got the ultra-portable of LG PB60G (it's not great in terms of its 500 lumen output, but it's easy to pack and take along if I move away).
So the question is this:
What's my best option for a screen? Cheap and effective, best bang for the buck solution. Keep in mind that I may have to throw it away and start all over in a year if I move to a different apartment. My light control isn't great, as this will be in the living room. I understand daytime viewing will not be great (maybe impossible?)
1) I could make a frame out of plumbing tubes and stretch fabric over it. If so, what kind of fabric? I would like high-contrast with minimal gain loss... if that is even possible.
2) I could get a 4x8 shiny white board from Home Depot and paint it with some rollers. If I choose this option, what kind of paint will be easy and effective? I'm not exactly a handy person. Again, aiming for high-contrast and minimal gain loss.
Thanks alot! =)
