The worst screen I ever owned was the Ebay 1.2 gain material, sparklie texture changed the entire look of the image.
Oh it was really 1.3 to 1.4 gain (odd since it was the first screen I've ever seen under-advertise the gain), but...
The sparklies and texture were so bad.
The BO cloth has 1% of the texture of the Ebay material (which the seller blatantly falsely advertises as having none with fake reviews).
However, the best screen I ever owned overall is still the Da-Lite 2.4 gain screen (discontinued), when factoring in all things.
So why did I get rid of the Da-Lite HP screen?
A few different reasons here... As noted, I have a dual aspect setup now (2 screens, one electric and one flush wall).
I had a Model B HP that wouldn't roll up, in my clumsiness in removing the non-rolled up screen from the wall, I damaged it slightly.
The Draper Accuscreen material is good, but not perfect, texture is somewhere between the Da-Lite HP and BO cloth.
The other screens I have owned all fall similarly (at best) to be about equal to the BO cloth to be honest (from seating distance).
