i prefer a eletric screen but i think the stewart manual pulldown is not a bad choice, it is also tensioned so i think the screen maintain flat ( i hope so ) the other possibility is the Draper screen but this has a lower gain 0.8 ,but it is electric ..
yes i considered the new firehawk against the grayhawk, but it think the firehawk will be to bright for my screensize ( only 82 inch ). At this moment i'm using a mat white screen 1.1 gain and even i think the picture is to bright. so i think a negative gain will do good for me. i'm only wondering about the manual pulldown quality from stewart ?
Overall, I think the quality of both products is high, and would be quite a nice addition to your theatre. I would ask, however, why a choice between manual or motorized? Is it strictly cost, or are there other factors as well?

Yes the choice i have to made it's the extra costs !! i pay here in holland for both screens around 2900 Euro's and for the electric Stewart i pay around 4500 euro. So i have to made a choice between these two screens, from the Stewart i know this is a good screen, from the Drapers High Def Grey i know nothing about, it seems to have the same gain, but i don't know about any users who has used this screen and how it performs against the stewart . i thought the draper has a gain of 0.9 and the setwart a gain of 0.95 so that is not a issue.
