I had a 120" 4:3 DaLite Cinemavision screen for about a year and it was just fine. Maybe it was an earlier material, I don't know because I bought it used.
The screen material had the texture and consistancy of latex rather than cloth. The surface was a little shiny, but had no sparkles that I'd heard about.
The screen had a slight yellow/paper tone to it, but overall it looked good.
But I wanted a larger 16:9 format screen without having to overdrive my projector, so I went with the Draper M2500.
I thought that in addition to the brighter picture, the M2500 had better color and contrast properties than my previous DaLite screen. I think that the minimal hotspotting and color shifting problems of the M2500 (I didn't have any streaking problems) are offset by the ability to have a larger, bright screen. But that's just my choice.
I've also gotten samples of the Draper M1300 and AT1200 material and both looked very good from the small samples that I saw.
