I dropped a bolt and it fell under the pack into the bottom of the hull. I went up to the maintenance bay and found we were out of those bolts that just happened to cost $32 each. So I went back to my tank, removed the other bolt, jumped on my motorcycle and headed off post to the local hardware store. I found the exact same bolt with the same stampings on the head for......... $0.92
I agree that if a product is made in limited supply, it will be more expensive. But to spend $2,000-$3,000 dollars on a screen?
Will my PQ be 16-25x better than my DIY $120, 110" screen?
Not going to stand by and have people knock these other type of screens ,

The 8700 on a black diamond will produce an amazing picture and make your 2000 $ projector look like a you spent alot more money than you did.....
Do you need a high end screen all depends on your room.
Will go back to what i have said above,
From what i am seeing coming in from epson,
You really need to make sure your new 8700 is inspected before purchase...
If you got your unit and it wasnt inspected and its still mint,
YOu got lucky
