I know there's already a "Dalite" thread but I can see it hasn't been touched in years, so I decided to start this one where it would more likely be seen.
I'm caught up in a bit of a dilemma. I now realize that I made a BIG mistake buying a Dalite video spectra screen for home theater use. The first time I fired up my PJ I noticed the screen had vertical bands showing on the right half of the screen that were irritating. I called Dalite and they graciously offered to send me a new screen and roller which I would have to change out in the case… which I did… and low and behold the new screen was even worse than the original. This time the vertical bands covered the whole screen, not just the right half. (I should also note that I have 2 screens and 2 PJ’s so it was not hard to narrow the problem down to a screen issue).
I called Dalite again, and they agreed to set me up with a completely different screen and credit the price of the Video Spectra towards it, which was cool of them to do. My dilemma is which screen to choose. The more I read, the more confused I get. I would like to stick with at least a 1.3 gain cuz I do watch a lot of 3D. The Cinema Vision 1.3 gain sounds nice but some have said the gain is over rated and the colors tend to suffer some.
I’m using a BenQ W7000, wanting a 110” 16:9 screen and ambient like is not an issue. So, what do you think Dalite fans (or not)? If you were in a similar circumstance, with a budget of a grand, and you HAD to choose a Dalite screen, which one would you choose?
Here's an example of the banding issue I'm referring to.
