Recommendation on 150" projector screen under $600

Hi all,

I recently purchased a BenQ W1070 for my home theater, the projection size is roughly 150" diagonally (16:9). I am in the market for a new screen as my old screen was 4:3 and not nearly big enough for the new projector. Ideally I'd like to spend less than $500-600 on it and I'm looking for a fixed frame style. Any recommendations?

Thank you

DIY. Get the material from Seymour AV. Download their super easy guide to build your own frame. Save a ton of money.

How hard is it? Not hard. I built my 115" frame, wrapped it in velvet, attached the screen material and mounted it in about 5 hours. Total cost was about $400.

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable.

Elite SableFrame Series should be in that price range.

Sheetrock screen painted a very light gray color to make the blacks blacker.
The owner of the screen said his screen costs:
Total cost for the drywall, supplies, and paint was around $55. The wooden frame is optional and adds another $60, for a grand total of $115. You could keep always paint a black border to keep it to $60 total.

This isn't mine but you get the idea.

Thank you
I'm sure you've already bought a screen. If you haven't I second Jamestown screens. You just need to be patient with delivery. I'd definitely order before Football Season starts
