Thanks for the reply. This seems to go counter to what I, in my sort of layman's understanding, have been able to detect as possible problems with the screen. I've read that some screens, due to rolling up and down warp and can show visual distortions through these warps. I've also read some screens don't produce black levels as well as others. Are some better for 3-D? And what if you prefer to be closer to the image, in the 10'-12' range, will some screens provide a stronger image than others? If these are real problems, than my question still remains, can they be avoided within the budget I have set for myself, if so any recommendations would be welcome, if not, how far outside of my budget would I need to go?
