Well, I decided to move forward with a VAPEX 106" tab-tensioned screen and an Epson 5030UB.
I hope the quality of the screen is decent because you sure can't beat the feature set for the money!
I will post more as soon as I get it.
Please post your experiences here!
I owned the 135" fixed with the velvet border and it was a very nice screen shooting my old 8700ub.
I think the gain was 1.1 .
The assembly was straight forward, but the instructions were not so good. When assembling make sure to have a battery powered screw driver as theres a lot of screws to put into the aluminum frame.
Please let us know your thoughts on the tab tension electric screen as my new project I plan to probably go that route since I want to wall mount my 50" plasma on the wall and use the electric screen to come down over the 50" on more serious movie nights
