I just got an Epson 8100 (first projector) and standing close to it I see how an LCD projector looks...little squares.


Can someone post a close up of a DLP so I can see how it looks.


I'm just curious

Alright, I wasn't sure if the DLP would be dots or squares. I hear that DLP is a smoother pictures so I thought it might be a little different.


I just need to get a screen up now. The projector looked great until I turned my tv on too and I saw the color difference. Watching the Olympic ski'ing on both... the projector didn't have the pop and the whites were more like off white compared to my 42" LCD tv. (wall is beige)

If your setup is suited for a high power screen, your fp will turn into a giant plasma or giant LCD.

White will only be as white as your screen..

I to am a fan of Dalite High Power screen. If you environment is such that the HP screen will be the most effective you will have a giant LCD..

Please read the HP review in the screen forum and the HP old/new fabric thread if you decide this is for you.

Good luck and have fun!

I have looked at that thread a little bit. I have the projector mounted too high to get the full benefit from it. I I'm not sure the viewing angle is wide enough for me either, but I have a sample on the way from da-lite so I will know if it will work once I get it.


I think I read that with the HP screen it doesn't need to be tensioned..so what's the lowest approximate amount I can expect to pay to get a HP screen 1.78(HDTV) 106" diagonal pull down?

I wouldn't bother if you plan on leaving your projector ceiling mounted. It is still a great screen even out of the cone but I don't see the advantage. No idea what they cost, contact AVS and get a quote..

Don't bother with HP and a ceiling mounted projector. I owned one under those conditions and found it very lacking. It reduced the gain to 1.0 or less and forget about viewing from the side.
