Screen Suggestions for JVC NX5

Hi All,

I'm looking to upgrade my existing - very, very old - Elite Screen 1.0 Gain projector screen to something better, for my new JVC NX5 (4k HDR) Projector.

Looking for something around 130" - 140", with at least 1.1 Gain (I think anything above 1.1 is unaffordable - correct me if I'm wrong).

I've been looking at Silver Ticker Screens which get really good reviews; also open to Elite Screen or Draper.

Not wanting to spend over $1K.

Can anyone recommend anything? Especially would like to hear from UHD HDR Projector owners.

Thanks!!

I love my Silver Ticket 1.1 gain matte white screen! If I were in the market for a new screen, they would certainly be in the top 1 or 2 for me, with the other being the Elite Screens ezFrame CineWhite.

Awesome!! Seems to be a large pricing Gap between Silver Ticket & EzFrame CineWhite. Any ideas why?

Definitely leaning towards Silver Ticket! Heard really good things.

I would say probably based on name/marketing/branding costs on the Elite Screens side.

That's what I assumed as well. I'll go in for Silver Ticket. Thanks for your help!

Is there a difference between the models? Some are STT, some STR and some end with -G or -S. I haven't been able to discern the difference. Looking at Amazon.

Thanks!

So I figured out the differences in models.

STT are thin bezel which I don't need.

STR are standard. In this, I have a choice of High Contrast Grey, Silver, Grey & White.

Can you recommend which is the best option out of these 4, for UHD HDR? I have no idea which color to choose. I've only ever had White.

Thanks!

Correct, you want the STR. I recommend white.

Check this topic on white vs grey.

May I ask you what 3D glasses are you going to use with the NX5?


Thanks!

The XPAND X105-RF-X1 Rechargeable 3D RF/Bluetooth Glasses:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BFO4XSA

With the JVC PK-EM2G 3D Emitter.

Both were the most recommended in the JVC NX5 owner's thread and also listed in Post #1 of that thread 😊
