Modern high gain screens don't have the issues old ones did. The Sharp may have higher brightness in 2D than many projectors, but in 3D mode you are getting less than 40% of the brightness. That is where a high gain screen comes it. Gray screens were only a good option when projectors had bad blacks. That isn't a problem now. Ambient light was one reason for them, but that was solving the wrong problem at that point, as the gray screen lowers bright levels as well as black levels. The high gain screen drastically increases the bright levels making for a much more watchable picture. I had that problem, and got a high gain Vutec Silverstar and it was an excellent solution. I have it in a bat cave now, but still like it. With my Acer 5360 in 3D mode I still have plenty of brightness.
