Here's some Amazon reviews:

http://www.amazon.com/Screen-Innovations-100-Inch-Theater-Sensation/product-reviews/B000KI522I/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?showViewpoints=1

I saw some of the Black Diamond series in a showroom. They were amazing with ambient light. I said my room will be light controlled and I don't need to pay the premium for the light rejecting qualities of the Black Diamond so I too am considering this screen (the Sensation) @ 110" paired with an Epson 6030UB projector.

Can't say I've had personal experience but thought I'd say something like - more than one person is watching this thread!

Someday it'll be more of an actual hobby - if my employer would ever let me go home!

I'm looking at this screen, did either of you end up purchasing one? Can you provide your impressions if you did?

Looks like a standard 1.1 gain white screen. Pricier than the Elites. The frame assembly appears to be a step up from the Elite Sable and EZ Frames.

I still don't have my room ready. I always think I'll finish up soon - but haven't yet... someday!

I have samples coming from Elite and SI. Not sure how much i'll be able to tell from a small sample, but worth a try before spending the money.

My samples came, I personally like the elite screen material better. Color reproduction seems much better. The SI did have slightly deeper blacks though.
