Also, Isn't Silver Star glass beaded and has visible sparkles? Or is this some new material?
Well, if ISF is not a standard to which we can believe in who then is the quintessential voice of standards I wonder ? Really though, without actually being sarcastic , how can we do we gauge a product ?
When I mentioned the Vutec Silverstar 2.2 to Mike Garret just the other day his comment was that indeed if it is ISF certified it should be a good product. I have no idea what ISF standards are or who
are the individuals involved. At some point I have to put some trust in these systems, otherwise the average person has no ability to make an informed decision. Many major manufacturers go through
great lengths to make it known which products have ISF certification , if this does not have any credibility, I guess we are all on our own .
In the last two months I have tried at least a dozen samples from various screen manufactures. What I have learned from this process is NEVER, NEVER buy a screen unless you have tested a sample
first. With the exception of one or two products most were not even close to my expectations. The only product that was close to being everything it advertized was the DA-Lite HP 2.4. I am not here to berate
the other manufacturers , they were courteous and confident enough to send me samples without question or condition.
manufacturer that refused to send me samples was Stewart
. Apparently their philosophy is not to have their product judged by a lesser product by people who don't know
the difference. That is exactly what the factory told me and the rep in Canada agrees. He told me to tell him what I want and they will sell me what I need, that was it. So, to the most expensive manufacturer
I say " I don't think so!!" If you actually think you have "the best" product and charge accordingly, at least have the cahones to prove it.
I have no idea if the new SilverStar 2.2 is glass bead, all I know is that is was displayed at CIDIA, some positive reviews reported and the material supposedly had ISF certification . For those of
us looking at a second or primary screen for certain applications, this was shaping up to be a viable alternative. Whether or not the production product ever makes the grade or even to market remains to be
seen. Only time will tell, we shall see .
