Ya... Perhaps I will do that as I'm still debating white or grey.
I wanted to get my screen order in asap so that I can get this all setup and tested before going on vacation in a few weeks. I'm more concerned about having an opportunity to test the projector within the return period than I am about the screen; I want to make sure there are no issues that others have experienced on occasion, split screen, high noise, RBE etc. Whatever screen I get I will stick with, but there is a slim chance I may need to return the projector and either get something different or wait for the next iteration.
The majority of our watching is at night, so ambient light will be much less of an issue. Our daytime watching will mostly be sports and cartoons sort of thing, content that is brighter and doesn't have a lot of dark scenes. My understanding is that sports don't have a lot of blacks/darks, so maybe a white screen would be better for that, to get more vibrance, unless the ambient light ruins that. On the flip side, at night when watching shows/movies, even though there will be no lights, I still think that a grey screen will provide better darks and more contrast. Based on all the reviews and videos I've watched comparing screens, I think that grey would be the better choice overall, but it will never produce the pop that a white screen will.
