I'm interested in buying an Epson 6020 (or 5020) and I'm trying to determine the best screen.

The projector will be mounted 15 feet from the screen. The room is completely light controllable, however I may choose to SOMETIMES watch with some lights on, like when friends are over for a game. Most of the time, however, I'll be watching it in complete darkness (except for the walls, ceiling, carpet).

I'm thinking about getting a 110" diagonal screen. I'm trying to determine if I should get white, gray, or what? Should I get a low gain screen (like .9 or .8) or should I get something higher?

Thanks in advance.

Samsung TV - PN59D8000 - wall mounted
HW50ES projector w/electric Elite 120" ceiling mounted screen (drops in front of plasma)
Receiver - Yamaha RX-A3000
Front Speakers - B&W CM9, Center - B&W CMC2, Surrounds - B&W CM5
SVS PB12+, SVS PB13 Ultra

I have an Epson 9500 and went with a JKP Affinity 110" 16x9 Dalite .09 screen. Not sure if it's actually pure white, maybe an off white, with gray in it.

For me it's perfect, but I don't do games, only movies.

...finally retired and spending time in my HT!!!

Equipment consists of: Epson 9500 UB Projector(Avical ISFd);110" 16x9 JKP Affinity Screen;Panny BD30 Player,Tosh HDA1 Player;Definitive Speakers (Center, Towers, Rears);Earthquake P12 sub;Onkyo 608 A/V Receiver;Nevo Q50 Remote;TWC-HD Cable Box;5 Bello chairs;Coaire Mini-split A/C.
