Hello. I recently bought Benq W1080ST and its image looks pretty good even on the wall, but of course I want a screen. I know nice screens cost thousands of dollars, but I don't want to spend very much because as far as I know this projector is entry-level. By the way, even 1000$ is serious sum for Russia where I live. Not mentioning shipping costs about 10-30% of screen price...

 

So, my budget is about 500$ (maybe just a little more). I chose Elite Screens R120WH1 ezFrame Fixed Projection Screen, but I am not sure it is the best choice. I found really few low-cost screens reviews so it was difficult to pick up the right one.

 

Also I can't decide what will do better -- White or High Contrast Gray. I'm going to watch movies/shows and play games with lights off at night, but my room is not dedicated for home theater (greyish-white cell and walls). It seems light reflecting from surfaces isn't much noticeable and doesn't ruin colors, but maybe I just don't have anything to compare with. So should I go with grey? Wouldn't picture be too dark and colorless? Or 1.2--1.3 Matte White will be okay for my room?

 

I'll really appreciate any feedback. Sorry for my awful English 'cause it's not my native language.
