I decided to get a 106" tensioned screen in white and am looking at Elite or Visual Apex. The elite is about $963 and vapex is $800. I don't mind the price difference but does anyone have a recommendation or know the differences? Do either of these screens have issues with too much texture or are they pretty smooth?

EDIT:
I see there is another thread on this exact topic so I'll post this question there. Here is the link: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1379945/vapex-vs-elite-cine-tension-2

Vapex is a better material. I had both and the Elite has more texture and more distracting

Thanks for the reply. How long did you have the VAPEX screen? Did it ever develop waves/wrinkles?

utee05 - what's the rough price for that screen? Based on what I've read, the vapex seems like a great value and unless you are getting something special, I wonder if it's worth it? (I ask because I might be willing to spend more as well)

The elunevision reference 4k is about $1350 for a 112"-120" screen. They also have a screen similar to vapex that is cheaper than what vapex sells. It is a elunevision titan 120" for $749.

Downside for vapex is the cost of shipping is high.
