    Hi, as we know, Fresnel screen is used for UST laser projectors, brands like Samsung, LG, Hisense, Changhong, Fengmi....use it as the standard screen option for their products. Because its gain, contrast, and color are great. But 100" fresnel screen is fixed frame, very large and heavy, not easy...

    I have wanting to buy this for 3D since I already own a LG HU85LA for 2D movies but I want to know how the 3D experience is due to 3D dimming the screen? How is the 3D experience? Is it super dark in 3D with the Optoma Cinemax P1? Or should I upgrade to a Cinemax pro? Cinemax P1 -> 3,000...

    Hi, guys! I'm making preparations to purchase my first projector- an Optoma GT1080HDR- and I've been trying to gather as much information as possible about the type of screen that will work best with short-throw projectors. However, most of what I've been able to find refers specifically to...

    I have a 123" diagonal screen built with carls grey. While we built our basement home theater setup, we made a ceiling notch with provisions of HDMI and electrical outlet. The HDMI drives the content from the entertainment unit. Due to this set up i dont have lot of room to move around my...

    Feel free to correct me if this goes in another forum, but it IS a projector (and screen) specific question so I'm thinking this is the most appropriate place (see photo below). I can do all the work myself as a computer engineer and avid DIYer (have gutted 2 rentals now!) - but I don't know...

    The big game on a big screen is a very big deal. That’s the most accurate way to describe what I’ve gotten out of a month’s worth of hands-on experience with Sony’s VPL-VZ1000ES ($25,000) ultra-short-throw 4K HDR laser-illuminated projector. The reason it’s a big deal is simple—I live in...

    Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone has seen or owned both an Optoma GT1080 and a BenQ HT2150ST? Reason I ask is that I currently own the optoma. The lamp is past 4500 hours and has began to dim, on top of that the projector is making loud vibrating sounds on start up (bad color wheel...

    Hi, all, I've got a BenQ 1085st hung up on the ceiling, but the light brown wall just isn't doing it for me. I'd like to get a screen painted up (~120"), and I've been reading through a variety of mixes on this site. It seems like most paint mixes are ALR, and my understanding is that they...

    My current setup is with a 110" screen and my projector is hanging about 1ft down from the ceiling at 15' away from the screen.
