Hi, just wondering what would give best results (IQ, brightness etc) if using either a blackout cloth or a matte white painted surface. The projector is a crt (specifically an electrohome 4100ecp). I realize that the blackout cloth would have the advantage of being perfectly flat since it can be stretched over a frame but for the sake of discussion lets assume i can achieve the same flatness with the painted surface.....thanks for all your help

By all accounts, a wall painted with 2 coats of Ultra Pure flat white paint
is the cheapest and easiest ~1.0 gain DIY screen around.

Everything else is harder, more expensive and has more chance of
not giving a reasonable return on a cost-effort basis.
