As the title states, I am looking for recommendations on drop ceiling grids and tiles. I have a small area in my basement the requires a drop ceiling (13' x 10'). I am looking to do 2' x 2' tiles, and wanted a very sturdy, easy to construct grid.

Anyone?

If you find something, let us know. I'm considering a drop ceiling in my wiring closet.

ACP acoustical ceiling products. Menards carries their line. Metal panels, wood coffered looking systems, lots of really cool options.
If you are patient and can rent or borrow a laser level, a suspended ceiling of the size you are working with shouldn't be to hard, unless the room is an odd shape requiring a lot of non 90 degree angles.

Do people usually pay to have these things installed?

Plastic vs Metal Grids - Anyone have any input on that?

We recently completed our home theater and I admittedly lurked on this site for a long time before moving ahead with each step. I ended up using cinetile and have been very happy with it so far. They are based out of Wisconsin (as am I), so also very convenient. http://www.iscsupply.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=33
The ceiling was converted from a 2x4 to 2x2 and metal grid was used.
