With the projector I'm using, (Epson 8350) In a dark room, the VApex matte white screen gives off a wonderfully bright, uniform picture with zero hotspotting, no apparent screen texture, and can be seen at any angle with little dropoff in brightness. The Frame is also surprisingly thick and strong. It really is a great product at a killer price.
However, with white walls, the matte white screen lights up the surrounding walls. The walls, in turn, reflect the light back to the screen. The result is a loss in contrast (blacks are gray) and contrast detail.(Dark scenes become dark patches where you should be seeing something.)
In a room with ambient light, the picture washes out because the screen material has no light rejecting properties. In this case, a VApex screen with grey material would be the better choice.
