I have had my screen for about a week now, it was delivered to Canada. Carada was excellent, as you may have read David Giles was informative and patient in regards to any questions I had.
I have a AE900 and previous to the screen arriving I was projecting onto a light brown wall I used Avia to calibrate, so the picture was quite good.
When I put the screen up (I ordered a 88 BW) and played Lord of the Rings something was wrong I could not put my finger on it aahhh the VB
everyone had been talking about. So when I had a chance I calibrated my projector with AVIA. To my surprise I had to turn down the brightness to like -14 (I don't know if that was the exact value as I'm going from memory). Well the VB
is unnoticeable now, and the picture is excellent, much better than the wall.
So why did I order the BW, if I had to turn down the brightness so much particularly with a 88 screen? Two reasons:
During the day, I can't control the light. I have 12 windows in my family room where the projector is located. Six of these have no blinds. two of which face south.
Secondly I understand the bulb will dim over time.
During the day I can see the picture but of course it is washed out. I will try some tweaking so that I can bet an acceptable picture.
In regards to shipping, it had taking a bit longer that I had hoped, 14 days, but that was not the fault of CARADA, but rather the courier company. The best part was the Tracking System they use when shipping the screen. It means that you know exactly where the screen is at all times...
I would recommend CARADA to anyone.
