Significantly improved Ambient Light performance....something that is not needed in a true, light controlled Theater.
The JVC has excellent Contrast specs, so without any need to combat lighting issues, a coating of Silver Fire isn't needed.
Of course using a lighter version of SF does enhance colors and further deepens Black levels, therein further improving perceived Contrast. But those who believe in a more purist viewpoint and who opt in for PJs of the x55r's ilk usually specify a Matte White, unity gain screen so that they see exactly what the PJ does with the supplied content....no more...and hopefully no less.
Even with all that, I would have still suggested a painted coating, but all that raises the cost of the build by approx. $200.00, and you did state you wanted a "Budget" Screen so in your case, simply specifying the Flexi-white seemed the thing to do.
But....if you even begin to consider the prospect of EVER having ANY degree of lighting present when your viewing content, be it DVD or TV, then you would be...and are well advised to consider at least Silver Fire v2.5 1.0
