I've been looking at an upgrade to my home viewing experience.
My room is 21x19 and will be light controlled.
I will be ordering a JVC NX5 this week and will ceiling mount the projector about 17 feet from the screen. No need for perforated screen, which will be wall mounted. Planned screen size is 120" wide 2.39 fixed - (120'x50" or 41.7 sq ft of material)
I've been scouring posts and it seems the choice is between the Studiotek 100 versus the 130G4.
As far as I can see, the benefit of the 100 is absolute uniformity of light across the screen versus a 30% increase (18.5vs 14.3) at center versus edge. The benefit of the 130 is a 26% overall increase in FL. In my reading I can see no major difference in image "quality" between the two.
Assuming the JVC NX7 yielded 1500 lumens versus quoted 1900, I would be at 36FL on the Studiotek 100 and 47FL on the 130 G4.
I would appreciate guidance on how anyone made their choice and their experience, especially if they've owned both.
History, I had a Studiotek 130 many years ago and made the mistake of switching to a DaLite higher gain screen. This has given me an irrational fear of solving brightness with gain
