Screen upgrade advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Many years ago I followed a DIY for making a 120" projector screen using seamless photography backdrop paper (which I purchased from national camera). I've been happy with it (except the one time my kids "colored it in" and I had to replace the paper..). Anyway, I'm getting a new projector- probably the Optoma HD20, and I'm considering if it's worth it to upgrade the screen as well.

I was looking at this 120" Elite screen http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Screens-M120XWH2-Manual-Projection/dp/B000X84VFE ($150)

Any ideas if this screen would be better than what I have now? I don't mind spending up to a few hundred bucks for a screen, but I want to make sure it's actually worth it.

Here is some more information:

Projector: I finalized my decision and bought the HD20
Seated 14' from the screen
basement- 95% of ambient light is controllable
lighter colored walls & carpet
main viewing source will be blurays or HD streaming

I probably care about picture clarity, color vibrance and good black color, in that order.

I realize it's a hard question to answer- I'm just wondering if maybe someone had experience with doing this kind of an upgrade themselves and what they might have learned from the situation.

No, walls are still yellow.. I suppose I could hang black curtains along the side if I really wanted to.

I have the projector set up using my old screen now. I like it a lot, but I just wonder if I would like it more with a better screen
