I'll add my vote to the try it first crowd. I ended up at 110" from a 9.5-10' viewing distance. Others like bigger, but I found anything bigger than this too large. It took me 4 or 5 movies to...

I'm not quite shure what you are trying to get at, but I do not think there is specific way the image should appear on the wall when you first mount the screen. That will vary based on how far out...

Thanks for the replies. I'm using an off the shelf paint for a first go before I consider anything else.

Painting, cheap hvlp gun vs rolling

I'm about ready to paint my screen and just found out I have access to a compressor. Will a cheap hvlp gun like the one in the link below give a better surface than rolling on the paint?

That's what I'm counting on. Fortunately for me, I'm coming off an old RP with so so blacks and contrast, so its a step up all round for me.

116" is in the middle of the range at 11 feet. You can get up to a 131" screen with full zoom. That's still not 144" though.

Yeah, its the twisting/torque I was concerned about. Its good to know that this is not an issue with the way you have mounted your screen.

That's exactly what I was thinking of doing to minimize damage to the wall. :)

I have a painting on that wall already, so maybe I'll just make sure to run the raceway behind it. Great idea!

That's good to know, thanks. The only 'budget' screen I have seen so far had hotspotting on lighter scenes. While it's something I could probably live with, it would be nice to avoid.

Can you tell me what the difference in performance is between the Triton and 4K screens? I would love to be able to compare these screens, but there does not appear to be any place to do so.
