I have a Davis DLS8, and I'll soon be considering buying a 'proper' screen for it. I'll be looking at approx 80 x 45inches, or slightly bigger, and I was considering a Stewart Grayhawk, but the prices here in the UK seem extortionate, especially considering how much they can be bought for in the US.
I've noticed that Cousins Video do an amazing price on the Perm-Wall with either High Contrast or Da Matt finish, and I'm interested in any opinions of the screen frame and/or screen materials from any owners out there. It certainly looks good value.
What screens are those of you with DLS8's using?
I'll soon be test running my Davis in its final position, and I'll be building my own frame and trying out white and grey paints just to see what affect they have on black level. Unfortunately, until I started reading this forum, i didn't even know there was a black level problem with LCD or DLP projectors! Ignorance is bliss!
I had been projecting the DLS8 onto a standard cine film screen, and it looked OK, but I have nothing to compare it with. I can't say that I ever noticed any greys instead of blacks (yet). I'll be sitting about 14ft from the screen if that helps anyone with giving me some help in my quest for a screen. :O)

I trust Gary Lightfoot more than James Cameron.
