Got ambitous over the weekend and made a test drywall. From left to right on the top is UPW, Carada BW sample, Carada HC Gray, Carada CW, bottom two panels are UPW with Poly Top Coat and plaint ol' SS. The screen in the background is my original screen of SS, WOP and UPW. All paint consisted of only one coat, except for my current screen. Most of my viewing is done in total darkness (except maybe the light from the popcorn popper
)so that is how I tested. My preference (along with the other two members of my family) prefered the UPW with Poly top coat. The picture quality seemed better on this surface than all others. The colors had the most pop and the white was really a brilliant white. The Carada screens were no better than the DIY paint screens. I thought the colors, especially the whites, appeared dingy on the SS and HC Gray screen.

I believe the UPW with Poly will serve my purpose well. I even turned on some lights by the concession areahttp://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q...on01/candy.jpg
and I still prefer the UPW w/Poly. I'm sure my room conditions greatly influence this. I will post full screen UPW w/Poly next week, calibrated to the best of my ability.
