The extra brightness the BW gives over the CCW. He explained that the bulb won't need to be exchanged as often with the BW and one can run their projector in ECO mode instead of high mode (Epson owners). I am sure the CCW is a great screen as well as people have stated on here.

The difference between the BW and CCW brightness is tiny unless they changed the BW material over the last 8 years and it is now brighter. I expected the CCW to be a good bit dimmer based on the sample I attached to my BW but when I swapped out the full screen material the CCW looked just as bright and I have my iris setting on my X500 at the exact same setting as I did with the BW.

As I said in my lengthy review of the CCW weeks ago, I really see no reason to buy the BW over it given they are so close in brightness and the CCW produces a superior black level and just has an extra bit of clarity and depth. The CCW's improved black and clarity and depth easily trumps the miniscule increase in brightness of the BW. The BW is a nice screen but the CCW is IMHO simply better.

I don't know whether the Carada screen is meant to be taken on and off repeatedly. I don't own one myself, but looking at the installation instruction the frame bottom snaps over the bottom bracket; not sure how easy it is to "unsnap" it.
You don't need to use the bottom bracket if the screen hangs plumb. That and if you don't have any issues with the screen being pushed upwards from below.

The brightness difference between CCW and BW for my projected image size was enough to go BW.

Did you first have the CCW and then swapped it for the BW?
