Experts here tell me that you should not buy a cheap screen for an expensive projector - screens are forever and projector technology changes every year.

I'm in the same dilemma these days. Do I buy a JVC/Panasonic $3000 projector and buy a $500 screen or do I buy a $3000 screen with a$1000 Epson 8350 - I don't know which one would be a better viewing experience in a light controlled room.

Generally I would work it from what I want to use my room for and what screen fits best in my room. First you need to decide if wanting AT or not, then you need to decide if you want a scope screen, 16:9 screen or some variation of the two. Screen aspect ratio is usually determined by what you want to watch on your screen. If looking for a strictly movie set up, many want a scope screen. Though some do not want to give up the size on the 16:9 image and consider going with a non standard aspect ratio like 2.0. Of course then you are back to black bars/un-used screen for all material viewed.

Generally if sports and gaming is a priority, people look at 16:9. If movies are the priority, they look at scope. AT throws another wrinkle in the picture, especially if wanting 3D, since most AT screens are low gain, unless you go with a microperf and they are pretty expensive. Generally screens are a tougher choice to make than projectors.

Mike,

What would you recommend for 60% movies and 40% TV - A $3000 projector + $1000 screen or vice versa?

I'm confused about getting a Panasonic 8000 and a Elite screen VS getting a Epson 8350 and a Stewart/Carada/Black Diamond. Which makes more sense for a light controlled media room and given the controlled budget for these 2 items. Which option will have a better, sharper LED TV like image?

I'd like a 2.35 screen / Non-AT / projector with lens memory so I can go from 2.35 to 1.78. Thanks.

I've had my RS45 & Grandview 1:78 fixed frame 1.0gain white screen for a year now in my light controlled theater room and think it looks great. I have a 112" version. I think it was $700 when I bought it with the projector.

I don't even think this should be a question. There isn't a screen in the world that will make a crappy projector look great. A great projector can look good even on an untreated wall. Spend the extra money on the projector and upgrade the screen down the road if budget allows and you think its nessesary.

So, what screen is good for a RS 46 in a light controlled room? Please advise.

How much gain is needed?
Do we need the High power screens?
Is Carada's quality same as BD/Stewart/DNP Supernova?
Is Seymour from Jamestown as good as BD/Stewart/DNP Supernova?

Thanks.

Hi

I have the JVC RS40 but had many projectors before it.
I auditioned screen samples from da lite and other companies and decided on what was the best for me at the time.
Three or four projectors later I still have the same screen.

I auditioned the Dalite high power, da mat, cinema vision, Pearlescent, mat white and maybe a few others.
I auditioned from a few other companies as well but they either were more costly or did not look as good to my eyes.

Get the screen companies to send you samples and then try them out.
You can watch on a white wall for a while while you decide.

I went with the closest to a 1.0 rating and the widest viewing angle which was the cinema vision.
Your JVC is much more powerful than the first projectors I purchased so you can also try a few high contrast screens.

Joe Kane promotes a line for Da lite I would be interested in if I was upgrade my screen material.
