Staple or grommet

Hello All,
Everything is almost done. Panasonic 8000ae mounted, Axiom speakers up, equipment rack built and got a great deal on the Pioneer SC 1523K. First theater so image looks great on the wall. I built the screen frame to accommodate a 140" 2.35 image. First row at 14 feet second at 19 feet.

Question: can save a little cash stapling to the frame vs grommets anyone have any experience with stapling or wish they used grommets instead.

Getting samples sent this week to decide between XD or UF.

Thank you

At 14 ft and 140 inches...I'd really recommend the XD. The extra gain will be appreciated.

I'm definitely leaning towards the XD and for the money will probably get it with the grommets. Since I really don't have any past home theater experience to draw from I think the extra gain of the XD will look better to me vs the possible better black levels realized by using the UF with the Panasonic 8000ae.

For me, I will will always choose a bright, punchy picture over a dull one with great black levels. I have an XD screen with a projector that has only fair black levels and it still looks great to me. Your Panasonic will be better in terms of black levels. On a screen that large you will definitely appreciate the XD. Get the grommets and save yourself a world of headache. My 0.02
