Any suggestions? I'm sitting about 11 feet away from the screen. What size would be appropriate? Name brand? Gain? Should I paint the wall black/gray or use a material?

I'm using a Stewart Greyhawk with fabulous results at about 10' on an 84" diagonal 4:3 aspect ration screen.

There will be lots of disagreement on which is best, with the camps split between the Dalite High Power and the Stewart Greyhawk.

Thank you all for the replies. So with the Dalite Highpower, I get better contrast and colors, but lose on the blacks. And on the Greyhawk I get much better blacks but lose on colors. Sounds like the Dalite might be better suited if I'm viewing with some ambient lighting? Ok. Now....should I go with a 4:3 screen or 16:9?....My sources are a panasonic rp56 prog dvd player and direct tv. I would say 80% DVD and %20 Satellite. Thanks again for the help guys. This is a great forum.

Unless you have an anamorphic lens you need to do a 4:3 screen with the LT150.

I think both screens have their merits.

The Gray hawk is well designed for the smaller (<100") screens in a ceiling projection set-up.

While the Da-lite Hi-power (IMO) is THE screen to use for tabletop set-ups due to its retro-reflective nature.

Dammit Mr. Wiggles,

Stop being objective and rational, this is no place for that ;)
