I just set up my new Studiotek 130 which I purchased from AVS Science. Thanks Benito!
My old screen was a Carada BW. A good screen, but I was looking for increased brightness when needed. The difference in gain, even though both are rated about the same, was immediately apparent. The Stewart screen isn't cheap, but it is a step up and well worth the higher cost.
The one complaint I have is the mounting design. The Carada has a rail you attach to the wall. You simply place the screen frame above the rail and slide it down until it locks into place. The rail can also be leveled very easily while on the wall, which makes leveling the screen a breeze. The Stewart approach is Rube Goldberg reincarnated. I shook my head, gave up and slid the "quick snap" brackets underneath the Carada rail which I had left in place.
Stewart needs to make conventional wall mounting as simple and convenient as Carada.
