How is it?

Looking to get a 149" inflatable screen for this summer.

Just want to make sure it's good enough to do it...

I had the Z5 on a 130" screen in a 100% dark room and it looked fine... Next test outdoors!

I put my Z3 outside the other night on a 10' wide screen..so about 138"diag. I thought it would look washed out since there was a moon out and some other ambient light, but I thought it looked very good with the lamp on low mode. I could definitely go bigger with that projector and still be satisfied with the image quality.

Good news! I will have my screen late next week. As soon as it warms up a little I will give it a go.
