Draper Argent White XH1500E

Could not find any reviews of this at all anywhere on the web... anyone have experience?

Its a 1.5 gain screen with a claimed wide viewing cone. For an inexpensive 150" setup this sounds like it could possibly be the ticket to getting sufficient brightness. Sounds like it might be similar to Da-Lite's Video Spectra 1.5, which is also extremely difficult to find impressions and reviews of (though the little that I did find is not especially favorable). Both are free-hanging non-tensioned materials.

I'm also considering Argent White and can't find any reviews. Have you learned anything more about this surface?

Thanks!

I've always assumed that Draper Argent White XH1500E and Da-Lite Video Spectra 1.5 are virtually identical due to their virtually identical descriptions and specs. Both companies will send you small samples of their screen materials, so that would be a good way to know for sure. If you don't want to go to all that trouble, you're probably safe assuming that reviews of Video Spectra 1.5 would also be describing at least the approximate performance you'd get from Argent White XH1500E.
