It depends. For me I have pretty good light control so my traditional white screen works pretty well. I plan on buying a Lenticular screen if any of these 4k UST projectors turn out to be worth the premium that UST projectors usually ask. If they all end up being too expensive, or have glaring issues, I’ll go back to standard throw. I have done countless hours of research and can share the summary of what I’ve learned.
So as far as lenticular screens go there aren’t a lot of options. As far as I know there isn’t any DIY lenticular material you can buy. There are three affordable (this is relative as they are still expensive) lenticular screens available that have good performance and feedback from users on this forum.
1)Elite Screens CLR, have read that the material is robust, performs well but the frames construction is just ok, and uses Velcro to keep the material tensioned.
2)XY Screens PET Crystal, performs well, the frames construction is sturdy but have read that the material seems thin and delicate.
3)ViewSonic BCP, rebranded DNP Screens (a commercial A/V whole seller). Construction is sturdy, performance is good and the material is stronger than the XY Screens.
These are all impressions I’ve read from users on this forum so, I can’t say that these are 100% accurate. Unless someone comes out with something new, I’ll most likely get the ViewSonic. It’s usually available and sold by Amazon, has as good if not better quality and performance than the other two, and usually costs the least.
Hope this helps.
