Your certainly not the first, nor will you be the last while Silver Fire continues to rack up the number of successfully completed screen projects it does.....continually.
You cannot go by the biased, contradictory statements made by those whose sole purpose is to dissuade any / everyone they can from using one of the most tried, tested in "real life"...and now copied DIY mixes there is. Their false and misleading statements have been going on for several years now.....and if they were in any way even remotely true, do you think SF would still be at the top of people's lists? No...we stand only as tall as the posted end results of those who actually make full sized Screens, not the results offered by those who use tiny samples, and methods that intentional skew results to illustrate what they want to have people believe. The very fact that so many other individuals and their posted end results disagree with what they espouse, and how they go about it trying to mislead others, tells the real story. And should you or anyone ever care to dare to disagree with their ideas and statements....well let's just say that your slated for a quick and summary demise.
Bluntly put, if the Mods and the "Administrator" didn't post, there would be almost no traffic or interest in what's going on at all.
You can read a great many testimonials on AVS alluding to the successes members have had with Silver Fire, (...see link below...) but "over there" you only read such negative stuff from 3-4 individuals, all of whom either do not, or are not allowed to post on this Forum because of repeated inappropriate and/or demeaning actions. They have their own method of doing things, using Aluminum instead of Mica-based reflective elements, and they do so because to do otherwise would be to blatantly admit that what we do, and how we do it has always been the better choice...one with more potential, adjust-ability, and far more performance related results.
They'd rather eat dirt .
It's really all about how well received SF apps are, and how little attention "other" under achieving applications get.
In any case, it's your call....but choose wisely, and base the choice on what the majority has to say...not a tiny minority with an agenda to drive traffic away from AVS.
While this response might seem a bit over the top...even histrionic, it needs to be stated every once and awhile because the effort "over there" never ceases...and if even one such individual such as yourself gets swayed unjustly...that's just sad.
