I'll be moving back to America from Japan soon and I'm trying to plan my home theater in advance.
In Japan I have a 80" Kikuchi Stylist screen with 0.85 gain and I just love it. I've had it for 5 years now and I'm currently using it with an Epson 5020UBe.
I'm a big fan of Kikuchi, so I was planning on buying a new 120" screen and bringing it back to America. However, lately I've been noticing that a fixed screen might be my best option and it looks like there are some good ones in America. I'm particularly interested in the SI Black Diamond Zero Edge.
Does anybody have one of these? It's really expensive, so I'm curious what everybody thinks of it?
It'll be mounted on a brick wall in a basement with no windows and the 5020UBe is fairly bright already...
Frame looks aside, is it really that much better than a SI Sensation screen?
Does anybody have a better reccomendation? Advise?
I really need to decide if I'm going to buy a new Kikuchi screen while I'm still in Japan or hold off for a fixed screen in America. When I get back, I can check them out in a store, but I'll lose my chance to buy a Kikuchi for a while...
