I started with blackout fabric, went to Behr's ulta white, three various shades of grey, and now I'm back to the blackout. I think it produces the best picture with the LT150.

Just my opinion, YMMV.

I second this statement. LT150 is too dim for gray screens unless you have small (<80" wide) image. Behr Ultra White should have more gain than blackout cloth but the contrast may suffer too. Neutral gain screen is most versatile. I'm curious about the Parkland Plastic stuff though. My local HD/Lowes do NOT carry these. 48" is not high enough for 96" wide screen (needs 54" for 16:9 screen which is perfect size for blackout cloth). I'm too cheap to buy $40+S/H for 5'X10' sheet.

Blackout fabric is too dim for me.

I'm thinking about painting the backside of my Tile board with the Behr Ultra white just to see it. Should I use flat, satin, or semi-gloss?

I used Eggshell and the results are slightly better than the parkland plastics sheet in my opinion. I actually painted the Parkland sheet as I had a hot spot in the center of the sheet.
