First time poster bear with me,

I am building a new HT Room, I am buying the Optoma HD33 Projector with use of a 110 inch screen.


14x20 room recessed lighting on dimmer.
Zero windows, full light control but would love to leave some rear lights on for backlighting
White walls, white ceiling

I am having an installer do the work and he is recommending SCREEN INNOVATIONS - PERFORMANCE 110" FIXED PROJECTOR SCREEN TPF110LG. Its the 4k Lunar Gray series with a gain of .85.

I have also found a couple of Elite Screens with matte white 1.0 screens and a new 4K 1.1 Gain type.

I know there is a million threads on the GRAY vs White but I am so torn on this and whether or not to believe this installers info.

Please help !!

I have a very similar room 18 x 14 using Optoma HD33.

Went for 140" screen and it is mind blowing.

The answer to your questions is go with White Screen for HD33.

Same room, same projector here and same dillema. With lots of reflected light bounced back from beige walls and white ceiling, high contrast gray seems like natural choice and if your installer thinks same way go with it. But if you room is dark man cave then higher gain screen might be better choice. Myself, I got a matter white screen with 1.0 gain and I am not happy because black levels are poor - worse than with my old SD Infocus which has a third of optoma lumens. This is typical in rooms lacking dark walls and 2D projection. On the other hand low gain screen may cause picture to be too dim in 3D mode. I have not tried it yet but it will happen tomorrow. Cheers.
