I never saw the screen material much with the HP screen, but so many suggest that it's best to have that image floating. Maybe it's just me but, I do not notice the screen with my jvc and the image looks excellent. Only time I did is with my Benq W7000 but it was getting almost max gain and extremely bright
be carefully publicly admitting to liking the HP screen, you may soon be scorned for watching a projector on 100 grit sandpaper.
Professor Millerwill was a lone soldier in the VW1000 thread for years defending his decision to keep the HP.
it's interesting reading the various opinions on screens, as if any one in particular doesn't have compromises... choose your battle.
3D on large, low gain screens doesn't work for me. if 3D was dim, I would have given up on it years ago. it has to be bright. if the texture on the 2.8HP was obvious in most content, I'd have gotten rid of it years ago. I've seen different high gain screen materials that were much more noticeably than the HP.
I have been interested in seeing the SI Slate screen used for ambient light viewing. i'm sure this will have compromises galore, but may be worth it for decent ambient light viewing using the LG PF1500. For now, I am using a make-shift screen from.... poster board. It works surprisingly well and I heard the texture is almost as smooth as snowmatt 100...
