I can't see the weave from 15' back unless I really look for it. Not really apparent while watching. I think the picture looks awesome, IMO, and have no regrets with going A/T.
I used Cream&sugar mix, from hometheater shack, for my painted wall and it looked awesome. People have to realize that they don't have to spend a ton to get a nice looking picture and paint when done properly looks really really good.
Sound imaging is pretty cool and noticeable on my 153" screen. I never thought much about sound imaging before but after watching on an acoustically transparent screen I'm sold! I tell people of this scene of a cart with a rusted squeaky wheel that moved across the front sound stage and the pin point accuracy of sound to visual reference and the seamless movement of sound across the front stage was unreal. I was sold after that scene.
Here's the same picture, the only one I have, that I have posted in other threads. The image is from my Epson 8500Ub or was it my 8350??? I'm 6'4" for perspective.

Thanks guys! : )
3.5 stars from reviews on the 120" screen and 4.5 on the 125"
There's also something to be said with automation. I would go with the electric 125" screen if it were me.Edited by Crabalocker - 10/28/12 at 11:41pm
