I think your washed out image probably is not due to your screen (unless the screen is terribly defective). You may need to darken the rear wall of the room (opposite the screen) with dark paint or drapes to prevent light from the screen from reflecting back and washing out the dark areas. Glass beaded screens are retro-reflective and are most sensitive to light from behind the viewers. Your problem may also be as simple as your projector settings. Have you adjusted your PJ's black level with a test DVD of some kind? In addition, with such a small screen, your image could just be too bright. If so, you might operate the PJ lamp at a lower brightness setting, or try an ND filter.
