VApex, Elite, Snap AV...all good values for Asian imports. But consider this: since the screen is the interface between your projector and your biology (eyes), an analogy might be speakers where they are the interface between source, amplification and biology (ears). There are lots of cheap Asian speakers to be had...some better than others. Strangely, however, many who would never consider buying cheap speakers happily buy a cheap Asian screen. They are usually front projection neophytes and inveterate do-it-yourselfers who have bought into the-emperor-has-no-clothes notion that a screen is a screen is a screen and anything costing more than a couple hundred dollars is simply unnecessary or, when there's a tight budget, should be considered a low priority...the caboose of the process. I would counter that when assembling an FP theater system, start with the screen. Buy a really good screen, then divvy up the rest of your budget on everything else. Buy a less expensive projector if need be...a less costly av receiver. Projectors and receivers deliver ever more bang-for-the-buck year after year. Upgrade those components and keep your high-performance screen and better-quality speakers.
