Peter, You have very accurately described what I also saw with both of my M2500 screens.
I described the texture as if projecting on to a stucco patched wall, with all of the stucco texture showing through on light scenes. It was very disturbing. I, too, miss, the extra oomph of colors and contrast that the M25000 provided.
It is speculated that the M2500 of two years ago is not the same fabric material/coating as it is today. Also, Draper's supplier may have changed
KBK, The cineperm screen provides complete tensioning once the fabvric is snapped on to the frame. My frame is also screwed into the wall studs, and is both level and plumb. I initially had my Sony 10HT table mounted and then went to a ceiling mount. The problems were the same in both cases. And the hot spot did follow me as I moved from side to side in the room.
Anyone contemplating a new M2500 is taking a serious chance. Fortunately, the M2500 fabric can be easily replaced with Draper's M1300 fabric, (as the snaps are in the same position,) which has none of these problems.

Had 6 dishes, now none. Just streaming.
Back in the early days, there were just HD demo loops, no programming. Now HD 3D and 4k.
