I know this question has been discussed repeatedly on these forums -- and I've read virtually every thread discussing it -- but I am hopelessly torn between two screens and need some input on my particular situation to help me stop obsessing over it.
- Projector: Optoma HD20
- Screen size: 100"
- Throw distance: ~12 feet
- Viewing habits: 40% movies/TV (lights off), 40% live sports (possibly dimmed lights on), 20% video games
- Room characteristics: basement room with no windows -- complete light control; walls painted a light/medium tan; white ceilings
I have already purchased an EliteScreens EZFrame 100" screen in CineWhite (1.1 gain). However, the more I've thought about it, the more I've come to believe the same screen in CineGrey (1.0 gain) might be a better option, due to (a) my white ceilings and tan walls; and (b) the fact that I'd probably prefer to have at least some light on when hosting guests to watch sports.
Should I return the white and get the grey?
