The Crtierion screen is nice but height restrictions limit my ability to use a screen with a thicker frame.
Is there anybody else with a new RS40,50 or 60 on order who will use their projector with a Carada Brilliant White screen? Is this a good choice? My throw distance will be 12.5 feet. Is BW a good material to use with an RS40 projector? Is CCW a better choice if I want the lowest black levels? I'm not too into 3D...but I'm sure I'll eventually use the feature and don't want a screen that is bad for this feature.
I also have a new RS40 on order with Jason at AVS. Since this is my first FPJ I am going to wait and play around with various positions in my living room by projecting on the wall before I decide on a screen. Since my living room is not a dedicated "bat cave" ambient light could be a problem. I have a 60" plasma at one end of the room for most of my sports daytime viewing and the JVC will project at the opposite wall for night time movies. I hope the BW will be OK with with these light walls I have since like you I hope to use the screen for 3D and I imagine the extra gain over the CCW will come in handy. I don't remember any comparisons in this thread about the black levels of the two screens, but I just may have forgotten.
