Hello!

I'm looking for a budget high contrast screen for my BenQ W1070.
This projector is pretty capable in terms of brightness (1100lumens in SmartECO, 1700lumens in Normal).
It will be used in my living room, which has white ceiling and floor, beige walls, and where it's difficult to achieve complete darkness.

The screen must be:
  1. 500€ ($700) or less, including shipping to France and taxes (less would be -really- bettersmile.gif);
  2. ceiling mounted;
  3. electric or manual (doesn't matter);
  4. 16/9;
  5. 120" diagonal (approx.)
  6. with a decent horizontal viewing angle (the most distant viewer will see the center of the screen with an angle of incidence of about 38 ° / the projector will be only 3.6m (12') from the screen)
And, off course, it must help to preserve the best possible contrast in my viewing environment.

Many thanks for your help!

Fred

I know this one is not on your list, Mark, but I just saw a Jamestown grey screen a couple of days ago that looked really good. The projector was an Optoma HD131. It should look great with a 1070. Don't know if you're willing to put up with the long wait to get one. Just thought you should know.
