Elite Aeon to a BD, quite the difference there. I swear, come time I'm going to Best Buy and at least try this one.

I'm also contemplating a Seymour Matinee Black screen.

Edit: Never mind. Reviews say it is also very fragile and prone to scratches.

I just received samples of the Microlite screens - I'll be looking at them this afternoon. Like the DNP and the Elite Screens DS and PS screens, this one is also scratch resistant.

Is black blackdiamond reflective like current TVs or is it matte even when there is daylight in the room?

It's gain is angular reflective (somewhat similar to a mirror or shiny screen) which will washout severely in the presence of any light that's strong enough and coming from the proper position to glare off a TV screen in the same spot.

Light-rejecting screens only reject light hitting them at glancing angles (like a stone skipping over a lake), they can't fight light hitting them from farther back..especially anything bright hitting them from behind your seats or near the projector.
Fighting that kind of light would require them to also fight the projector's own light/image.

Light-rejecting screens are for helping against washout from nearby light-colored surfaces reflections and from some direct light at glancing angles, but not really anything else.

Simple <$250 dedicated black-fabric theater room, build in a day, takedown in an hour.
Easy $25-40 DIY black/dark-grey ambient-light rejecting screen, grab two things from a local store..mix..roll..done.
