Hi,
I'm planning on purchasing an LCD projector with ~1000-1200 lumens. I'll be projecting onto a 60"-80" screen. The projector will be ceiling mounted and the center of the screen will be about 2-3 ft. above eye level. The screen will need to be a pulldown. There can be lots of ambient light at times.

I guess idealy I'd like to get a grey screen with some gain, but it doesn't seem like this exists (at least reasonably priced in a pull-down - please correct me if I'm wrong)

I can't really justify spending more than $500 (although I'd like to spend less) since I'll only be spending <$2000 on the projector. I also woudn't mind buying used, but I han't really seen many used screens for sale.

Any help is much appreciated!
-Ted

Ps - the room is long and narrow...

Ted,
I am a CRT owner but the same applies for LCD/DLP. The way any front projector produces black is to not project any light onto a white screen or gray screen, in other words the black is the absences of light so if there is any ambient light in the room a true black cannot be produced. I am a big front projector fan but in a room with a great deal of ambient light a rear projector may be better suited for the job.
