The room is 22x17 rectangular with a 10' ceiling. no windows. painted dark gray and black. I am looking at maybe buying the panasonic PT-AE1000U pj. What size screen and what type and brand would you suggest? I have 100% light control in this room so will just about anything work? I'd like to spend around 500 or less on a screen if possible. I just need the screen to mount to the wall, no roll ups or anything liek that.

thanks.

Just 'cause you're right doesn't mean I'm wrong

If you buy a commercial screen, rollups are usually cheaper, cost less to ship and are easier to setup (no setup required, just put up to screws and hang).
I keep my rollup screen down 98% of the time.

I too have a dedicated (pitch black room) and love my highpower. Yeah, it's bright, but I like it bright.

depending on your seating, I'd probably opt for 119", but I could see trying to go a bit bigger (126-135").

Id really like a regular screen that I can attach to the wall. Any color recomendations or site recomendations? Id like to buy one soon.

Stewart FireHawk G3 would be the best you could do with this projector. Not the cheapest, but the best.
