Hi,

So I finally ordered my projector and got a Panasonic PT-AE8000. I now need to get a screen to go with it. I am looking at buying a 2.35:1 or 2.4:1 screen that is about 133" diagonal.

Use is 50% TV, 25% movies, 25% games.

The room has burgundy walls and we are painting the ceiling black, however we would like to be able to use it with the lights on low and also in the daytime for sports or video games. There won't be any light shining directly on the screen but the ambient light could be reasonably high.

I am currently debating whether to go with the Black Diamond Fixed 1.4, Black Diamond Zero Edge 1.4 or the Firehawk G4.

Which do you think would be best for this situation?
Are there any other screens I should consider?

Thanks
Jim

I am getting a Black Diamond fixed 2:35 106" .8 with a ae8000. You now have another option with SI, They have a very affordable screen named Slate. Go research it.

Going on 4 years to finish a 2 week upgrade...

I went with the FH G4 in a 113"... Hopefully it will be here next week. Front projection guys have some great screen choices out right now for sure.
