I currently have a drop down screen (I don't even know what type it is without taking it down, but I suspect it is not a great quality).
I am going to have to make some changes to mount a Marquee 8K that I just acquired and would like to change the screen. About 8-10" behind the drop down screen it a perfectly flat wall covered in drywall.
From what I am reading here, do I even need the drop down? Seems to me I could either 1)make a screen as others have done and mount it on the wall, or 2) just paint the wall and do a black border, or 3) replace the drop down with a better quality one.
I am leaning towardes #2, but there must be some reasons why a lot of people are doing 1 and 3 instead. I'd especially like to hear some pros and cons between 1 and 2, since eliminating the drop screen buys me that extra foot of real estate across that end of the room.
