Just finished building our house and I am about to pick projector and screen.

I have pretty much settled on getting a Panasonic PT-AE8000 but I am not sure about the screen. I have the option to buy a Draper screen at a REALLY good price so I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with the draper screen materials?

I was wanting to do 148" Diagonal 2.35:1 Clarion screen, but not sure about the screen material. I figured since the room is a dedicated theater with no windows, a white screen would work well (Draper XT1000E material 1.0 Gain matt white) but the selection tool on the Draper site suggests a grey material as the best option ( XS850E 0.85 Gain high contrast grey) even for a bat cave dark room.

Any opinions?

Assuming you'll have a normal throw distance, I think you can use almost any of the Draper materials with that setup. If you prefer white to grey surfaces, the Matt White XT1000V should work well.

Thanks for the advice! I ended up going with the XT1000 material.

How does it work? I'm in the same situation- dealer has the white in stock others would have to be ordered... Any issues? I'm looking at 119 in diagonal for my hw50...

In a dark room, white surfaces usually work well.
