The amount of light refected to the room walls and ceiling at is best.

The review looked to have found its gain is closer to 2.8 rather than 10 unless I'm really misunderstanding something.

Simple <$250 dedicated black-fabric theater room, build in a day, takedown in an hour.
Easy $25-40 DIY black/dark-grey ambient-light rejecting screen, grab two things from a local store..mix..roll..done.

This is very interesting Kraine, any idea what the advantages are over other similar technologies such as Black Diamond which is considered to be one of the best optical screen technologies currently. Must admit, the screen shots on the french site showing scenes from Casino Royale look very nice. Furthermore, the pics you posted above are not showing up.

It would be good to establish the following:-

1. Gain ?
2. Viewing angle ?
3. Image fidelity ?
4. Performance in typical interiors with light walls and ambient light ?
5. Ambient light rejection from all sides ?
6. How close is it to using a reference white screen in a completely dark room ?
7. Ability to retain detail in whites and blacks in high contrast images in non-dedicated rooms ?

These screens seem promising because a wide viewing cone, excellent image fidelity and good ambient light rejection especially from the sides could mean that users could enjoy a fantastic large image using projectors such as the JVC range or the Optoma 90 series which are excellent projectors but lack the brightness required for large screens and 3D viewing.

What screen did you get ?

Price ?

Sorry, forgot to ask, how much did you pay for it and what size screen did you get ?

Kraine, how does this screen compares with the Draper React 2.1?

The Lusoscreen page announces two new products:
- Grey flat screen Premium
- Black screen - Available soon

Do you have any information on this new models?

Neo, it would be nice to compare it to Draper ReAct 3 which replaces the 2.1. Also a comparison with the Black Diamond 1.4 G3 would be great.
