Send me an email and I'll send you a sample. Compare them in person - there is no better way ! " A picture tells 1000 words " as they say !

I would definitely lean toward spending the extra money and buying a Stewart Cima Neve screen but I want thin bezels and I'm sure the Balón Borderless™ for Home Cinema will be priced way outside what I'm willing to spend.

That leaves me looking at Dragonfly Thinline or Silver Ticket Thin Bezel which is pretty inexpensive compared to the others.

The Cima Neve frame, while not a thin bezel, is on the narrower side.

I downloaded the spec sheet at it shows them at 2.5" which is significantly larger that the .5 dimensions I'm seeing on the thin boarder frames. My current Carada screen has a 2" flate bezel and 1 3/4" angled portion to the screen, overall it it has a pretty wide appearance.

I saw Elite’s EDGE FREE® technology 100" screen for $350, I'm curios to know how that would compare with picture quality of the Stewart. It seems the price of screens really go up if you need to buy the screen type that combats ambient or room lightning issues.

Get screen samples and compare. I'm not really a fan of the thin bezel screens. If you ever want to overscan onto the frame for one reason or another, you can't. And yes - ALR screens tend to be more expensive, and IMO, have compromises VS a white screen and a dark light controlled room. There is no free lunch as they say.

I have a light controlled basement area so a 1.0 - 1.3 gain white screen will work and if I understand correctly, provides the best picture? I wish I could see a thin frame or zero edge in person. Amazon has the Elite so I guess I could return it if I'm not happy.

I do know what you mean, having the felt boarder does assist with not having to fit the picture at 100% perfect, I think I need to really take that into consideration!

In my opinion, yes, a quality 1.0 - 1.3 gain white screen will provide the best picture in a light controlled room. I switched from gray to white 5+ years ago, and couldn't be happier !

Like others, I replaced my old HCCV with the Cima Neve that Craig recommended. Couldn’t be happier. It’s amazing how much clearer and detailed the images look. Thanks Craig.

I'm looking at this screen to go with my JVC X590R in my family. I do have some ambient light coming into the room that I can control. So would this be a good choice?

Will you post pictures, I would like to see how wide the bezels/frame is.

I’m deciding between the Cima or something with a thin bezel like the Dragonfly Thinframe.

The bezel is about 2 3/4” wide. It’s a nice looking screen.

The Cima Neve won't cost more than a Da Lite HD Pro screen, which would be the only Da Lite material I'd use for 4K projection ( and is comparable to the Cima Neve ). I haven't seen a Silver Ticket screen myself.

@Craig Peer Those pics of movies from your theater look great on that screen! Do you have any pics of your theater with the lights on to see how much light attenuation you are using?

Do you just want photos of the theater walls / environment ?

The lights are cranked up and the picture somewhat over-exposed . The walls that aren't black are painted Sherwin Williams Garrett Grey, which is fairly dark .

@Craig Peer So you have a lot of dark in the front to attenuate, but have a bright couch and glass table, and your pics still show nice and dark with no apparent stray light. Hopefully mine will work like that. My concern is my carpet is only Tan. But my walls and ceiling are dark brown. (WILL be actually, haven't had it painted yet, waiting for the wiring install throughout the room)

My carpet was tan too. I had a giant edge bound " rug " made out of black carpeting. Also, the couch isn't quite as bright as it looks in the photos. Having all the overhead lights cranked makes it look brighter than in person in normal lighting.

Which of those screen materials in 1.1 would be best for a JVC X30 (or a JVC N7)? - from what I can tell, the Da Lite 1.1 is also in a "high contrast" version with 20% ambient light rejection.



- I really like the UTB frame bezel from Da-Lite -look more like a modern high end TV

I prefer the Cima Neve myself. But get samples and see which works best for you.

Craig, I also have light carpet and would like to get a black carpet edge bound. Where did you find the black carpet and who can do the edges? Also, did you make or purchase the sound deadening panels on the back wall? Room looks great!!

I was lucky that I worked in construction for 20 years. I had my old carpet contractor source the carpet and have it edge bound. I'd suggest finding a carpet / flooring contractor - residential or commercial if need be. I picked the darkest least reflective carpet he could find ( might have been Shaw Carpeting ).

The acoustic panels are 2' x 4' from GIK. https://www.gikacoustics.com/

How much daylight leaks through or around your curtains?

Almost zero. I have foam board cut to fit the window openings, plastic slat blinds and the drapes over each window.
