Screen Question?

I have a Vutec Silverstar 110" screen that is about 11 years old, I presently have a Pioneer FPJ1 projector and would like to upgrade my screen to 120".
OR should I just keep my Vutec. Both look pretty good but I would like to go bigger.....?? What screens are out now that would be a good match with the Pioneer and probably in another year or 2 I'll upgrade my projector.....?

Any comments on a Carada BW or a Stewart 100 upgrade from my Silverstar?

Aren't Silverstars all super high gain screens? The Carada BW has a little extra gain and the stewart 100 has no gain.
After 11 years with a Silverstar, i can't imagine you'd be happy with anything else. If you change your very high quality, but low lumens (600 lumens) projector for a newer JVC with much more light output, you might like a Carada BW or a Stewart100, but i doubt it. I have no doubt that Stewart and Carada makes great screens, but it's about what your eyes are used to seeing. I say save yourself some aggravation and just get a bigger Silverstar.
