I want to upgrade to an Boxlight 1HD and I currently own a Hi-Contrast Da-Mat - since july 28. Since I will drop from 2000 lumens 400:1 to 700 800:1, is a High Power a better choice? I am also thinking a DDOG screen, but is it good for my setup?


I am affraid I will lose A LOT of money for a screen I used for about 20 hours... ARGGG!


I need advise before I make a mistake.

I have owned a z1 for just under a year, and have used a diy parkland screen since. now its fine with the light off and no ambient light, but recently ive become tired of it and feel a need to upgrade. my plv-z1 (for search purposes) is ceiling mounted so a high power isnt the answer, i recently recieved a 12"x12" hccv sample a was very unimpressed, it barely looked better than the parkland,only slightly better blacks and not better overall color, now the firehawk was something else , very nice blacks, great color, ambient light rejection,im very close to just ponying up the $ for the material. im also considering some of the other diy screens out there.

I'm waiting for a Brilliant White sample from David Giles, from Carada.

I really like the quality of their frame, based on the installation guide he provided. It seems better than the permwall frame I currentlyt own. I really hope it's the end of my quest :)


Will it be a good material for me? My friend have a L300U with Hi-Power. so I will use it to test-drive the Carada material.


I do not have the possibility to spend that much money for a Firehawk, I'll have to pass on this one :(


Thanks for ALL the responses! I guess I'll have to rely on my eyes and KW5150 opinion. One is better than none.

let me know how the carada samples go, as im in no hurry to buy the firehawk material. although the material qoute "is only" $450 (which is still more than i want to pay).

thanks kevin
