I have a LT 150 on the way it seems and want to use this when I go overseas. I don't want to purchase a screen of maybe 6-7' wide (16x9 aspect ratio) over there and would much prefer to find a high gain screen I could fold up and put in my luggage. Anyone know of an inexpensive screen that will handle that? Its either that or pay $130 as an extra baggage charge for a rollup http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif

Larry, I'm not too sure how you could do that. I have the DaLite High Gain, and because of the treatment used in the surface to achieve the reflective characteristics, it makes folding a screen difficult without introducing folds, and creases that I imagine would be distracting if not impossble to iron out once you arrived at your destination. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Thanks for the reply

I was digging through Drapers site and ended up ordering a Cineflex that really is nothing more than matte 1.0 but that seemed to be the best alternative available.

one more quickie....seems I can get the whole Cinefold package very reasonably and can get the high gain...2.5 material for it I just have to roll it up rather than being able to fold it. Might help some other people in the same situation.
