This may have been covered in other threads (if so, please point me to them). I'm either going with the DWIN Trans2 or Sharp 9000 projectors. I need to choose a fixed position 16:9 screen and looking at both Da-Lite and Stewart. I know Stewart is considered 'king of the hill' but there is a significant price difference between the two.

Please tell me why I should or should not consider Da-Lite. I'm looking at a 100" diagonal at a viewing distance of 15' to 16' (depending on projector).

Thanks!

Hi David
With screens the old adage, you get what you pay for, is really true. Stewart costs more because the product is superior and the service is second to none. I have a Stewart 135 inch 16x9 Ultimate 4Way with GrayHawk material. The new FireHawk sounds like it will be even better for projectors that need the gain. I would highly recommend stretching you budget and getting the Stewart, with the Velux border, over the other screens.

I would agree with the above. I bought one of the higher end Da-lite screens last year. Tensioned, Como Electrol. I was really happy with is for some time. But in less than a year the matererial is bowing inward almost an inch on each of the sides at the middle. Sure it's not a lot for as large of a screen it is, but I notice it. I was considering the GreyHawk at the time but I opted to save some $$$.

... and Stewart fixed wall screen owners - no bowing at anytime?

Did you ask Da-Lite to replace it?

I've had a Steward Lexus Deluxe ScreenWall up for about a year with no issues.

I'm planning on selling it and replacing it with the same thing, but larger.

It's 120" wide in 16:9.
