for some reason, i kept going back to the picture of the screen because it looks like your screen is glowing...then i see it is a retroreflective hp, so it is! any issues with it at that large size and material type?
Sorry to not have replied sooner on the screen ?...
Yah that retro effect is cool...you think a flash makes it glow...you should see that sucker lit up with good black light lol. It looks like a giant light fixture.
Back when I was screen shopping there was not a lot of good info available about using the HP material for home theater use...i was a bit hesitant to go with it but man am I glad I did. I have not experienced any problems at all with the HP screen...it's been one of the best investments I've made yet.
When I upgraded from my old light cannon Sanyo PLV-60 (installed way back in 2002) to the JVC RS-1 I knew I'd be needing some gain over my painted wall screen. Enter the Da Lite HP. I went from a 118" painted wall screen with the PLV-60 to the 133" HP with RS-1. Even though the RS-1 doesn't have the light output of the Sanyo...the image was far brighter and had more pop with the RS1/HP combo. Also the RS1 destroyed the lcd based Sanyo when it came to contrast and resolution.
The only issue I had was that since the HP is a retro reflective screen, in order to maximize brightness, I had to ditch the ceiling mount for my pj. I ended up moving the pj to the closet and mounting it so it shoots right over your head when seated. If you look at my pics you can see the trimmed-out square hole in the back wall. It worked out great as it also eliminated all the fan noise issues I had from the ceiling mounted pj...it was a win-win all around.
