hi I am looking for a gray screen for my living room but I have some ambient light. I've looked into the SI Black Diamond however it is a little pricey. What other screens can you recommend that are cheaper but with similar performance to the SI screen.

Thanks,
Mike

here is a little more info about the room:

- The room dimensions are the following: 22'L x 13' W with 10' cleanings, viewing position from the couch is 20' to the screen

Projectors I am considering:
- Sony vpl-hw50es,
- Espon 5020UBe,
- Panasonic PT-AE8000.

The thing I am most concerned about is light control and contrast, however we don't do a lot of TV watching during the day since we have cut the cable service.

Suggestions would great..

Thanks,
-Mike

I own both of these screens ( I consider the HCCV the " poor mans Firehawk " ). They both work well to maximize contrast, and minimize the image washing out with some light in the room. Or, you could possibly use a High Power screen. 20' is a long way from a reasonable sized screen ( I sit 12' from a 120" diagonal screen, just FYI ).
