My screen will probably about 51x108 inch.
My goodness, your size and lumen output puts you within easy reach of exceptional results! But 51" x 108" doesn't add up to any known Formatting.
Typo? 58" x 103" = 118" diag. @ 16:9 ....and 51" x 91" = 103" diag. @ 16:9 .........both will work out well with the HD33, but I'm a'bettin on the 58" x 103" / 118"er
I want to apologize to you personally for venting last post, but it's just knowing the DEA product and Stephen from personal experience, and having seen how many have also jumped without personally viewing and yet whom have all be satisfied makes me be more than a bit defensive on both their parts.
Certainly for some in the DIY world, the difference of $2-300.00 might spell the difference in a decision. But....for those who really want and need exceptional ALR performance, combined with a quality image with the fewest and least problematic ALR caveats possible, the DEA is nothing short of outstanding. And it's a child of the AVS's DIY Screen Forum too! Therefore I feel strongly that it deserves it's place and position as a premier offering that holds up it's reputation against all the other Mfg offerings. And so it should receive our strongest consideration when suggesting a high performance ALR option.
One thing that many do not know / take into account is DEA's ability tp be shipped safely, securely, and relatively affordably overseas. They've shipped across the width & breadth of the Planet, from the EU to AU.....serving good stead against ALR screens costing $1000's more "locally". Combine all that with the fact that complete Screen kits as well as the Laminated Fabric alone are available, and DEA virtually stands by itself at it's price point as far as a unique and affordable option that actually delivers on it's promises. (...and more...)
As a qualifier (...and Olive Twig...) to Ftoast, certainly for the cost conscious DIY'er who wants a non-paint ALR option, the Carl's can hold a place in the scheme of things. But....as a comparative "performance" choice vs DEA?
It's just not there.
