I puchased a used dalite electrol that was supposed to

have a 1.1 gain material, but unfortunatly it came with

a retro reflective super high gain screen that is only

ideal if the pj is floor mounted.


so i need to replace the material (57"x77") in a light

controled environment.


any recomendations?


im tired of watching movies standing up:p

If you are dead set on a commercial screen -- consider some of the 1.3 gain screens. Stewart if you can afford it.


A good alternative would be to build your own using blackout cloth & paint. Many many threads here on this, so search around a bit.

I think you'll be very happy with the 1.5 gain. The ECP series has fairly 'low' light output and the more gain you have the less you'll have to push the projector to get a good image.


The only caution with the 1.5 gain would be to watch for hotspotting or colour shift -- but these tend to be over hyped anyways. Some of the ECP series allow for internal adjustment to address colour shift.


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you like it, that's perfect.
