Low cost solution for LED projector
After many days of searching and lots of reading, it doesn't seem like there have been many posts or success stories after a solution was recommended. Here is my situation that I am hoping to solve. I have an Acer K330 projector that is 500 lumen and trying to figure out if I should use paint or cloth for the screen. I am leaning towards cloth because the drywall has several imperfections (thanks to the builder) that I feel will compromise surface if painted. I realize this is subjective, but with 500 lumen, will Carl's Flexigray be a good solution or would a higher gain suit? Unfortunately most of my friends do not have an LED projector for me to know how much gain I will need. I currently have a 150" screen that I would like to keep but I am willing to trim it down to ensure that the picture is better. Viewing distance is 14', and the ceiling height is 8'. In the coming days I have to paint the room and block basement windows so that I can reduce the light sufficiently during the day. Given that the painting will add to my overall cost, I'm looking for a lower cost solution with potential to paint later to improve. Who knows, I might even be able to spring for a better projector in the future.
