Hey guys, so i finally took the plunge into the front projection world for my family room and I went all in with it. (Black Diamond 92" G3 w/ the Panasonic PT-AE7000U Projector)
I got REALLY lucky on the screen... I got the screen unused & un-assembled from a guy on Craigslist for $760! ...now here's the bad part....it has a minor horizontal scratch on the bottom left portion.(1/2" or so) Also, there's a few really small dents but I'm definitely not as worried about those. I wanted to get some expert opinions from seasoned veterans in the front projection world to see if these issues are worth freaking out about. I haven't installed the screen or the projector in the family room yet, but I did try the Panasonic projector on the screen and BARELY noticed the small scratch. (only saw it when brighter colors were on the screen.. and when i say "saw it", i mean i had to really look for it) What do you guys think? Is it really worth going through all the trouble of replacing the entire screen just for that? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I would put the screen up and do some viewing. After viewing then I would contact SI if it's a bother, and see if they can assist you with your issues.

I've already tried using the projector on it and you really cant see it unless you try very hard to look for it in bright scenes. I appreciate the tip smile.gif
