Silver Ticket - Replaced Grey with Matte White
Just finished swapping my old 120” Grey screen for a new matte white screen. I see a lot questions about “should i get white of grey... “, so I thought I’d give some feedback since I’ve had both.
My setup home theatre is a nice little man cave with controlled lighting. Walls and ceiling are a matte dark brown/black. Projector is a BenQ HT2050 with a 10’ throw. I also have a i1 Dispay Pro with Calman and calibrate my setup.
I’ve had the Sikver Ticket Grey since 2015 and have always loved it ... grey screen gave me nice dark blacks and the color was deep. Much better than the painted wall I had for a couple of years. My only gripe was that it seemed dim (My most recent reading with Calman was 14 fL). And I thought if I went with a white screen that the blacks would be terrible and the colors would be washed out.
Wow was I wrong!!!!!!
Not only is the white screen brighter (25 fL with the meter), but the colors have more “pop” and the blacks look just as good. I can’t believe the difference. My HT2050 projector has 3000 hours on it and it looks brand new. I actually have a brand new bulb and I’m a little aprehensive to install it. Might be too bright.
So if anyone is sitting on the fence about grey versus white... go white! In hindsight, the grey screen was of no benefit whatsoever for my setup (Ht2050, light controlled basement rec room, 10’ throw, 120” sceeen).
