About 8-10 years ago I bought a PlusPiano projector and a Stewart fixed screen. I was such a novice, I just bought what the dealer suggested, not sure what type of Stewart screen, but suspect a studiotek. It cost $1000 back then, whatever it was, and was 92" 16:9.
Fast forward 10 years, my newest projecter has the output to support a bigger screen. I'd like to buy a 120" screen, but don't want to pay what it would cost to purchase a Stewart screen this size. Been looking at some semi-diy screens in the 300 range.
My concern is that I may have taken for granted the picture quality my original screen provides, and if I buy a cheaper brand screen, even though it's 120", I'll discover the tradeoff in PQ is not worth the increase in size.
So my question is, is the Stewart screen really that big of a deal concerning pq, and is it possible that many cheaper screens will provide almost the same image? If there is a drastic difference, I'll continue to use my 92" screen. Thanks for your advice.
