Tab-Tensioned Monoprice vs. Elite

Will be purchasing a tab tensioned motorized 120" screen soon, and these are the 2 that are in my budget. The Elite Screens Starling and the Monoprice. The Starling is $200 cheaper, but only comes in 1.1 gain white. Then Monoprice comes in grey or white. If I need grey, then I don't have much of a choice, but if I should do white, then I have a choice to make. The projector will probably be a Sony 40es (possibly 55es if I can find a deal). The walls and ceiling are a lighter green, and there are windows in the room, which will be covered with curtains, and almost all projection will happen at night, as I'll be keeping the TV behind the screen for daytime viewing. All that being said, does anyone have any experience with either of these screens? Sorry for the poorly lit pics, I was trying to give a night time example.

I am looking at the same two screens as well, so any help or comments would be great.

Not disappointed at all with the Elite. Seems to be a great screen. Setup and mounting were very easy. Up and down is a little slow, but it doesn't take as long as my RS46 does to power, so even if I had a faster screen, wouldn't get me to watching any sooner. Overall, great value.
