I just bought a BenQ W1070 projector and now need a screen.  I've been reading a bit about the Jamestwon screen and don't know which screen to get . . . Matte White or High Contrast Gray screen.

 

Any advice/suggestion is greatly appreciated!

The W1070 is a light cannon. Get a lower gain gray screen.

Lets make it a little harder . . .

 

I found a used 110" Da-lite screen on craigslist for only $250 (originally $1,200).  Owner says it's in like-new condition.

 

Should I still go for a Jamestown grey screen or the Da-lite white screen?  Cost is about the same.

The decision between white or gray has very little to do with the projector. It has everything to do with you room conditions. If you have dark walls, ceiling and floors and full ambient light control you want a white screen, a gray screen will only make your whites gray. If those conditions aren't met then a gray screen comes into play to control reflected or ambient light that hits the screen.

Smart enough to know better, to old to care
