I originally painted it Black Widow because it was the easiest gray mix I could figure out. Unfortunately, I do not have any pics of the PQ but overall was very pleased with it.
Then I ended up relocating the light switch on the wall and painted a bigger screen. Since I did not have any more Black Widow mix, I decided to make my own concoction that was a lighter gray and easily attainable. I basically went to Home Depot and used Glidden GL9000 and tinted it Behr's "Painters White." The color is actually a light gray even though the name implies white. This is my first projector and I am no expert, but my mindset was to use the most flattest base I could and tint it a light gray. Overall, I am very very pleased and my kids seems very impressed.
Note: The can should say GL9000. I used many paints in the past and am not sure why Glidden isn't more popular than Behr in general. Shewin Williams and Kelly Moore make good paint, but I always hated Behr products. The Glidden paint seemed very high quality IMO.

Then off... I believe I am using Rec709, eco mode, detail clarity +4, and Art's (Projector People) calibration setting. All my HD content is only 720P and my source my HTPC (Geforce gt430 video card) using Media Player Classic Home Cinema with ffdshow doing the rendering. I'm sure once I calibrate it using the Disney WOW disc, it can only get better.
Overall, this has been a fun experience and my kids seem to love it.
BTW, here's a picture of my Sanus Systems VMPR1. I was hesitant at first, but am really glad I found a good mount.
