I am in the market for a SharpVision DT-200 (which are now discontinued). My question is, what screen would you recommend I get:

1) High Power screen to get a bright/punchy image since the DT-200 has such a low 600 ansi lumens rating.


2)High Contrast screen to maximize the color saturation without having to open the DT-200 up and mod it?

I would be scared like hell to open up my freshly bought $1500 DT-200 and start modding it :)


p.s. I can't afford a Stewart, so I am thinking Da-Lite for my screen choice. Any other afffordable brand you would recommend?

I still don't get how you would get higher contrast by modding? Do you make it darker? or it's really higher contrast ratio? If it could be better, why didn't the manufacturers optimize it?
