Thanks to Daniel Hutnicki. My High Power screen is most excellent. Every complaint I've heard about this screen is a non-issue for me after seeing it in person set up with my X1 ceiling mounted. I bought it sight-unseen just based on what I've heard and couldn't be happier. I have the model B 100inch and I definitely am happy I paid the extra $15 to have the casing painted black. And if any of you are wondering about how it compares to other professional screens, don't worry. I looked at a lot of screens at my local home theatre store and this is easily up there with the best, if not the best. Unfortunately, they never carried the High Power --p robably because for some strange reason Da-Lite doesn't recommend it for home theatre which proves only that the bottom line on these things is not high enough for them (because it's also cheap! Bonus!).

Yeah, every one of my local "hometheater stores," either chain or B&M, regard the front projection as the highest-end luxury system. So their main sell is the over-$10K Mustang HD2 DLP's paired with the over-$3K high-end electric or fixed screens. They could not care less about projectors below $5K, or any of OUR lowly manual pulldown screens, which are, in their view, for schools and churches! Of course, no place for the High Power there...


I believe that, thanks to the attitude of these stores, a whole lot of "ordinary" people are missing the truly affordable wonder of the front projection that we enjoy so much!

That you can throw a quality image on a quality screen for an entry point below $2,000 for 2x the size of most rear projection sets is definitely a poorly understood pheomenon.

One of the interesting things I notice about this screen is that the image is always consistent throughout the viewing area. However when you move your body positions you do notice a difference in brightness due to the gain. This amazes me and makes it an excellent screen. In other words, if you are seated in a certain spot the image is the same brightness throughout the screen. Move spots and the image brightness changes, but it is still the same brightness throughout the screen. Great!

I bought my Hi-Power last year during the height of the "GRAY-IS-GOOD" fad. I too think the Hi-Power is right up there with the best things in life along with sliced-bread and those little chocolate Hersey's kisses. Seriously I did so much research on screens and I left no stone unturned viewing screens till they all started to look alike. The Hi-Power stands out from the rest but you need to have a longer narrow room to make it really shine (pun intended). I got the screen can painted black as well... nice touch.
