I think a white screen with velvet black border looks ugly. I know they make drop down screens that can be stored in the ceiling when not in use, but the floor trusses in my attic run the wrong way. A "TV" looks acceptable hanging on the wall. Maybe because it's black and doesn't jump out at you like a pure white screen does. There used to be some companies that offered art covered screens, but it seemed like a gimmick at the time. ~ 96" diag 16:9. Don't need AT.

This is for bedroom. I might just get a flat panel, but I have a barely used rs40 that I thought maybe I could use here.

The black diamond is not white and they make one called zero edge but it is going to cost as much as the projector did.. If you can live with the lack of boarder just do a DIY painted screen with no boarder.. Or put curtains up nice drapes on a travis rod over a normal fixed frame screen when not in use..
I wish I had a bed room big enough for a 90" screen.. hell big enough for furniture would be nice to! eek.gifwink.gif

You could use an externally mounted drop down screen and the case can be white to blend in with your ceiling!

Also, you could go with a manual pull down if you do not want to spend for an electric.

I like Stewart for there overall quality and performance BUT I would imagine that you would have to give your first born
for one of these Boutique screens ( as in unbelievably expensive)! eek.gif
