Ok so I am building a theater room in my basement and need help picking a screen for it. My projector that I have chosen is the benQ 1080st. I have about 75" that's from the front of the projector.

Screens under consideration:

1:) Elite Screens ELECTRIC125H-A1080P2 Spectrum Projection Screen acoustic pro

2:) Elite Screens ELECTRIC125H Electric Projection Screen max white

3:) Elitech 120" Electric Screen 16:9 HDTV Format High Contrast Grey

That's what I have so far these are all on amazon, I will take suggestion on these ones and others.

Budget is $500 with shipping

Why not a fixed frame screen if its a dedicated theater room. The 3 screens you show are for three different room setups.

1. Acoustic screen if you are placing the speakers behind the screen.

2. Cine white for a dark colored light controlled room.

3. Gray screen for room lighting issues or light colored walls for better contrast

most retractable screen will develop wrinkles if they aren't tab tensioned.
you might get a better response if you post this in the screen section

Smart enough to know better, to old to care

Well it is a light controlled room and I will be setting up a 70" sharp behind it with the floor standing speakers behind it. What do you recommend for tension screens?
