So, I've been doing a bit of research and shopping for my mini-theater I am putting together next week. I have Narrowed my projector choice down to the BenQ w1080st or the Optoma GT760. As far as screens are concerned, I have been flirting with the idea of either getting an Elite 100 Cinemawhite, 1080p2, or Airbrite 3d. While looking through those options, I discovered that my local Microcenter has an Inland 100inch fixed frame screen 50 bucks! Has anyone had any experience with this screen? I know it wont be the best, but maybe it's a good interim screen.

About the Screen:
100 inches
2.8gain
Aluminum alloy frame with black velvet surface
Flexible PVC Screen

About me:
Using Short Throw Projector
Mostly gaming/movie nights with the wife
Room is 11x13
Plan for screen placement is across a window with blackout curtains installed

UPDATE:
I went ahead and bought the screen (50 bucks is a drop in the bucket really. Good enough to at least test the screen). I'll give impressions next week when I get the projector and set it up. It is a Inland ProHT 3D Projection Wall Screen. 16:9 ratio @ 100 inches Fixed Frame. $49.99 @ Microcenter

So I have officially set up the screen and it looks pretty damn impressive for 50 bucks! If you have a Microcenter near you and it's in stock, I highly recommend it. Price dropped to 40 the other day.

Is it a grey screen? My local Microcenter had them in stock and I ordered and it's ready for pickup. I don't need it and don't really have a place for it but obviously I have a deal sickness.

Lol @ deal sickness that we both share. Yes, it is a gray screen. It has a high gain but is definitely good stuff. Made with soft PVC and easy to put together

I am thinking about picking this up. Can you provide the dimensions of the assembled screen? I am really interested in the total width.

Thanks!
