Waves don't matter with retroreflective screens like Dalite Hipower and others, which also saves you a bundle on cost of tensioned.

I've been using this screen http://www.htdepot.com/Focupix-BriteG-16-9-Electric-Motorized-Screen-103-p/20058.htm for almost 3 years and it's NEVER had any wrinkles or waves and still performs perfectly. There's also a 10% off "coupon" on their home page right now. Good luck with your decision.

BTW, the viewing area is 120''. 125" includes the black borders.

I ordered today the Elite Screens Electric100H Spectrum Series from Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Screens-Electric100H-Spectrum-Projection/dp/B000YTRFEG

I was originally going with a 92 inch screen but went with a 100 to have my projector farther back. The screen gets great reviews for the most part. This is my first screen and projector so the screen should be good. Right now I've been using a white king sheet and it looks good. I would think the screen is better than the sheet.

Good luck with the Elite, I'm sure it'll be fine. I apologize for giving you an incorrect link.redface.gif The Focupix screen I've been using is 1.3 gain, NOT the 2.0. Didn't catch that when I looked on htdepot's site. Looked again and it appears that the 1.3 gain isn't in stock anyway.

Happy viewing!
