One of the drawbacks of the Elite AT screens (in addition to moire) that I have read here in the forums has been that the weave is visible from even ten feet away. The P2 material may alleviate this problem.
Judging by the pictures on the Elite website, the weave is denser in the vertical direction than it is in the horizontal direction on the 1080P2, and it also appears to be significantly denser than the 1080 material overall. I'm not sure if the weave itself is angular or if the picture is just taken that way, but I'm considering using the 1080P2 material so hopefully I can get a sample to evaluate.
I'm considering the Seymour AV XD material as well, which I evaluated a while back and was overall significantly better than the SW4500 I was using. Zero moire, no visible structure from normal seating distances, and brighter than my SW4500. Only downside is that, because of the irregular weave, you may or may notice what I can only describe as "sparkles" in large sections of uniform color. I found that to be much less distracting than the moire though, and I really had to look for it.
