I tried to find information comparing these 2 screens but came up empty, except for an older blog by Widescreenreview.com.
I have been asking numerous questions on the forums lately, but based on some advice, I have narrowed it down to 3 screens.
The Studiotek 100, Da-Lite HD Pro (aka Joe Kane) 0.9 and possibly Da-Lite Da-Mat. I have a very good, light-controlled room, walls very dark brown and screen wall and ceiling black. Only 2 windows in the room, one on the side wall and one on the back wall-both will be getting black-out shades. Screen wall to back is 17 ft. I want to wait until the pj is up and I can judge size on some muslin, but thinking no larger than 106 in diagonal. Will probably sit about 13 ft. from screen. Going to be using an Epson 6020.
primarily will be for movies and NFL (with shades partially open). I have been told that 106in is max for that pj at about 14 ft.. throw distance and on economy with the Da-Lite HD 0.9.
I read the widescreen blog, but could not find any formal testing of this screen v the Stewart. I would greatly appreciate the following:
1) Do you agree with the 106" size with these screens, or do I need to go smaller? I would like to use Eco mode if possible for movies, I realize that I must ramp it up for sports with shades up.
2) Do you think one screen is better, for my application, and please tell me why you believe this.
I know the Da-Mat screen is less than the other 2, but since I won't be changing screens for a long time, I would invest the extra money in the other 2, if the picture quality is better.
I hope that some of you have these screens and would share with a beginner, your thoughts and insight.
Thank you very much.
