From what I have been able to gather so far, not particularly cheaper for compairible material. More expensive than Elunevision 4k audio weave,already put together. Literaly half if you want to DIY. And these screenshots , come on now has a lot to do with your projector. Like I said doesn't pass the smell test.
Go back and look at my post history. No one on this website has posted more about various alr screens. No one has more first hand experience with ambient light rejecting screens on this website than me. So if I'm not qualified to talk about a high-performing ambient light rejecting screen on this website. Who is?
I am not a lurker with a low post count who suddenly shows up every 2 or 3 years to make one post. I'm someone who steadily posts on this website daily. And anyone who knows me knows that I am passionate about ambient light rejecting screens. My post history and my thread history clearly shows that fact.
To your other point, pricing and ordering needs to be streamlined on D.E.S's website. I will agree with you on that. That was the major reason why I hesitated on purchasing a screen from them for over a year.
As for the screenshots, you have to have black levels to retain. I see people commonly using cheap, low contrast projectors with ALR screens. The results will be mediocre because there are no black levels to retain.
If you start off with a low contrast protector with the inability to produce anything beyond grayish black levels, then that's what you're going to also see on the ALR screen. This is why so many people using DLP and low contrast lcd projectors paired with ALR screens get poor results in the end. An ALR screen will not enhance what's not there. It can only help retain black levels under certain lighting situations for which it is designed.
