I was in the same position as you were. I have an Epson 8010, my first projector, and screen choices were the Elite Cinetension 2 and the Vapex screen. I watched the price on Amazon bounce around on the Elite and ended up choosing it as I got the Cinetension 2 135 inch in cinegrey for about $780 delivered. The images on the screen looks great but I cannot get the image perfectly centered because the screen itself is not quite even. Also a slight wave is at the bottom. I think it is a good cheap screen. I did not want to pay more than I did so I am happy with it. I also considered another one on Amazon that was much less but worth the gamble, I can look it up if you are interested. Where I live I could not audition screens so this made it more difficult. Also I will not go through the hassle of returning such a large item and I knew this going in to the Elite purchase, unless it simply didn't work. Good luck. Let me know if I can help.
