Can some one point me to dealers of Screen Excellence screens so I can get some pricing?

I thought looking for a projector was bad but I think choosing a screen is even worse. I choose the Panny 4000 projector because I really want the lens memory for different aspect ratios but I wish it were brighter, I have no problem buying a more expensive projector but I don't want to get into lenses.

Need an AT screen that will be 120" wide 2.35. Based on the projector central review numbers of 550 lumens in Cinema mode and 950 in normal mode. That would give me 13 Foot Lmaberts in Cinema mode and 22 in normal. The only thing is that I don't know what zoom setting those readings were taken at?

Wish it were a little brighter or the screen had some gain. I am open to different screen choices also.

you should redo your math. If you use the Panny to zoom, you will lose 25% of your light output. What's the lument output at D65 for the Panny?

You will lose the light output not because of the zoom setting but because you are not using 25% of the panel. This means that 75% of the lumens are hitting the 2.35:1 screen area and the other 25% are being wasted projecting black bars off the screen.

you can have a look at this Elite Screens Manual Pull Down Projection Screen, hope it is suitable..
For the projector, i recommend the Sanyo PLV-1080HD High Definition 1080p LCD Home Theater Projector.The image is bright, crisp and colorful.

Thanks for the suggestions. I am going with a fixed screen, no need for a pull down.

The projector you listed has a lower light out put and contrast that the Panny 4000 (1600 -vrs- 1200)

Yep I did and thank you much for the info. Was just looking for some personal experiences on different dealers that people have used.
