Flexigray?

I am building a new screen and was wondering if a flexigray from Carl's would be good. I am using this in the living room so there will be ambient light.My projector is just the Acer h6510bd. Thanks in advance for your advices.

Your good to go for a selection of sizable screens.

Thanks MM. What's your experience with it or anyone that has gotten the flexigray as is instead of the flexiwhite and painting it? Would I be better off getting the flexiwhite and painting it down the road, when the boss(wife) approves of buying the painting equipment and paint mixes?

Absolutely. FlexiGray is a very decent "Hang and Shoot" material, but it is still just a basic, almost neutral Gray material with a sub .9 gain rating.

Start out with FlexiWhite, use Low lamp Mode, and you'll still have the opportunity to upgrade the surface easily.
