I agree that the website is a great resource, as I've visited that site many times. However, they list "calibrated" lumens, not "uncalibrated" lumens for the projectors. Which is why I has hoping...

I agree, it's not terrible, it's just that it's only slightly better in ambient light than a typical white screen. If one needs an ambient light screen, there are better options.

The Darkstar is a retro-reflective screen, instead of an angular-reflective screen. A retroreflective screen typically needs the projector to be more straight on with the middle of the screen. I...

Wow, if these folks are providing screen samples that are 5"x5", they're really doing themselves a disservice. It's going to be difficult to make a $3K purchase decision, based upon a 5"x5" sample. ...
