youweimichael >>> Be comforted knowing that for some of us such as myself 96" diagonal is the largest size we can fit in our HT; However, depending on how well you do with your company, you should immediately start manufacturing these screens in larger sizes to accomodate all customers, as exemplified by the above very disappointed comments.
On a side note, guys, since when did screens measuring 110", 120", even 130" diagonal became the norm in HT ? How can you fit such huge-sized screens in the confines of your HT ? What size rooms are we talking about here ? How close do you sit to the screen ? Do you make sure to sit within an angle of viewing between 30 degrees to 40 degrees, as recommended by THX and SMPTE ? Are you getting the recommended onscreen brightness of 15~17 ft-L ?
Just curious here....

Not all of us have the luxury of a dedicated theater room (not that I would want one) and use our living rooms, which is also why this type of screen is of such great interest.

Mine is 14' x 22', leaving plenty of room for a 128" wide screen, which I view from about 15'.

I am in the market for a new screen but nothing smaller than 119". Based on the info regarding the High Gain material, I would be interested in this new material!

It's got my attention. I see this similar to the old Sony black material....they were only able to go up to a certain size.

As soon as the training center they have opens up, i'll be there and report back.

Microlite has a training center (presumably for dealers)?

If so, that's a good sign.

Sorry, wrong choice of words....

They are here in socal so i'll check it out as soon as it opens up.

Thanks Benito, that's good to know; Hopefully by August these folks will be smart enough to supply you and AVS with a sample of the screen for testing, especially considering the fact that you are located not too far from their showroom.
Personally it's hard to believe that's been almost one year since i heard about this screen and that i am still waiting to buy one; before doing so i need to read test reports and get a small sample of this Microlite screen material to compare it against several other high-gain screen samples that i have on hand right now as well as against my XXX high-gain semi-curved 76"diagonal silver screen.
I am hoping that by the time i get my hands on one of these screens i'll also be able to get a brand new 1280x800, 500 lumens LED projector, either the Optoma ML-500 or the Viewsonic PLED-W500...

He did post this. Looks like it will be August before hearing anything new. I would love to have this in a 110" pull down. I would replace my High Power screen in my family room.

I got a feeling this is going to be 4 times the cost of the Dalite if and or when they offer sizes like 110

Thanks Benito, i was about to re-post AGAIN !
And, please, try to put some fire on their asses to get this screen out asap; It's been over one year since it has been annouced and displayed at trade shows.
It would be really great if they could provide you with a full-sized screen on temporary loan so that you could test it with different pjs and you in turn could pass along to them your impressions and suggestions of the product.

that's what i'll try to do. Take it with me and test it out with some entry level projectors and some higher end DPI / Sim2 units.

I found these projectorcentral a link on the screen is not only cheap electricity, but they are running an introductory offer of 30% off your entire order.

Ive talked to a couple of local dealers about the screen and theyve said the same thing. Looks promising, very intetested in becoming a dealer, impossible to get in touch with.
