I apologize in advance if this has been addressed in the 390 pages of this thread, but I'm just jumping in and had a couple of questions.

My setup is in a "great" room, so there is not really a...

Great question - I would check with the Elite Screens folks and confirm one way or another. The 12"-14" from the floor seems really low. My current TV is 21"-22" from the floor, and my feet are in...

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...

If I go with a TV for day time and a projector for evening/night use, then yes, I would want an ambient light rejecting electric screen. I would most likely choose the DNP .8 in that case. The...

Well, I just did some more sample testing. I did not like the 1.3 at all. I liked the Seymour AV 1.2 much better. True, it does have dropoff at an angle. The 1.3 looked more like the white...

Just received my samples of 1.2 and 1.3 Seymour AV screens - approximately 8 1/2" X 11" size. First impression - very easy to scratch, which is not good. The Elite Screens Darkstar 1.4, like the...

You are correct, DNP does not have gain around 1.3, which is also what I would like to have. I received a free sample of the Darkstar from Elite screens - not sure why you could not? If/when you do...

I've got a bunch of screen samples as well. My favorites so far are the DNP .8 and the DNP 2.3, but I'm looking for something in the 1.2-1.4 gain range for an ambient light screen. I wish DNP had...

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. ...

Thanks Paul! That 1500 lumens certainly puts it in the same ball park as the Sony HW55. So, are you saying that it's only 1500 lumens on the 1.2 screen shown in post #1...

I don't think Seymour has a 1.4 gain screen. They have 1.2, 1.3, and 2.1. Which one do you have have again???

Hi Paul,

Was that a DP projector that you used? I'm guessing it had tons of lumens, so even when dumbing down the brightness on one of those, it's still probably 2-3 times the lumens of the Sony...

Hi Paul,

I looked at that report, and I believe it reports problems with sparkles on the Ambient-Visionaire screen. I thought that screen was supposed to eliminate the sparkles?

Thanks,
