I am thinking about going with the Parkland or Blackout screen but I haven’t read any posts as to how well the AE100 works with these two options. If you have such a set up I would like to hear your thoughts. Has anyone experienced both? If so, it I would love to here what you thought.

Parkland is a great combination with AE100. Easy to work with. They don't suffer from "waves" like the $200 dalite screens. The problem: it is a little harder to store away unless it is a permanent install on a wall. Try it . You only lose $14 if you don't like it.

If you could get the Parkland plastic screen locally (to be able to inspect it) then you should go for it, I say the Parkland edge's out the blackout material (I have both). I had to order the Parkland screen via phone and shipped via UPS to my house and sad to say that even after a few days of being rolled/stretched out it is still not fully flat. :( I bought the 4x8 and 5x10 (not useable at all for me).

I used some spray-on contact adhesive to glue it to a piece of 1/4" particle board. Flat as can be and works great! Of course, mine is permanently mounted...

i used a 5x10 sheet.
you cannot even put it up on the wall yourself, you need help.
and if you affix it directly to the wall, you have to attach it completely around the edges (like with a stapler) to flatten the plastic. of course, once you do this, moving it is almost impossible.

for this reason, even though i have not done it myself yet, mounting on another piece of something is really the preferred way. moving/repositioning it becomes trivial. and then its perfectly flat. unless you're willing to do this, you'll only have 1/2 a good solution from a physical standpoint. the visual aspects (its got 2 different sides) are another topic i cannot help with.

I used artists canvas streched on a frame, painted light grey. Works great, very light, colors look wonderful.

I've had the parkland myself and I'm completely happy with it. Especially for the price that you pay for it.
