Screen Size: 130
Throw: 11-13 (Could be further if off center is alright by about 1-2 feet)
Sitting distance: Under the projector so about 10-11 feet from the screen.
Lighting: Some ambient lighting from computer screens(not directly at the screen but in the same room), white walls
Uses: For movies, tv, and gaming
Time: Both day and night but I should be able to make it pretty dark in the room.

I am planning to buy the BenQ w7000.

I was looking at the Elite Screens on amazon and they seem pretty reasonable but I don't understand the whole 'cinewhite" or "gain" stuff. What should I be looking for? Are those screens good for their price? This isn't a permanent residence either so are those screens hard to take down? Should I opt for something a bit more expensive so that I could possibly move it in a few years or just go with this and when the time comes to move deal with the hassle?

Ok looking around at screens, whats the difference between these screens, except one is about 200 less...

First one I was looking at (the 130 option):

http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Screens-ER106WH1-Projection-Screen/dp/B00366KE42/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Second one (the 125 option):

http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Screens-ELECTRIC125H-Projection-125-Inch/dp/B000Q87LM6/ref=pd_sim_e_52

The second one is cheaper and can go up and down electrically....

And this one (in the 120 16:9 white)
http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Screens-M100XWH-Manual-Projection/dp/B000B60LVG/ref=zg_bs_392442011_11

That's even cheaper and can go up and down manually.

Is the option to make it go up and down a bad thing?

1. 1.1 ciniwhite 16:9 screen 106 inches in a 2.36 inch frame.

2. 1.1 gain MaxWhite 16:9 electric drop down screen 125 inches (a bit larger)

3. 1.1 gain MaxWhite 16:9 drop down screen 100 inches.

Both are white 1.1 gain screens.

Do you need to your screen to roll up?

Read about the materials and decide for yourself. Elite says the cinewhite is better.

Have Fun!

You had better plan on about 15-1/2' for throw if you want to fill that size screen. Also plan on dim 3D if using 1.1 gain screen and that is in a good light controlled room. With white walls and white ceiling, not sure 3D is much of an option at that size, using that gain. It will work for a little while, with a new lamp.

I'll second you doing a bit more research. If you don't have a basic understanding of screen ratios, gain, etc then you may want to seek professional advice before you spend money on a screen that won't work for you. I purchased from Mike at was very pleased with the service. I would suggest giving him a call at the very least.
