How to Select a Projection Screen
Author: Dave Rogers, Elite Screens
Don't forget, a projector is only part of the equation - the screen can sometimes make all the difference in creating a brilliant image that pops.

Here are some important questions to consider when you're buying a screen:
How much should you spend?
How big should it be?
Should I mount it or use a portable one?
What kind of material should it be made of?
And what's all that about aspect ratio?

Projection screens start at around $100 and go up from there. A good rule of thumb is to spend approximately 15% - 30% of your projector cost on a screen. This is a typical industry guideline, since few can justify paying the same amount for a projection surface that you spent on the projector itself.
