I have two Carada samples that advertise at 1.4. After a bit of testing next to my portable pull up Elite 1.0 gain screen there is no way it (brilliant white) is above 1.0 gain. I've owned two Caradas in the past and I've really liked their quality and service but I wish companies would be honest with their gain measurements (like Da Lite, Stewart, etc., which seem to be accurately advertised). I have not seen a 1.3 gain screen less than $1000 at that size but if you can save a bit more you should look at Da Lite's HD Progressive 1.3.

The Brilliant White is above 1.0, but just barely. The Elite on the other hand, may not be 1.0.

I am looking to spend less than $1,000. I need a 1.2 or 1.3 gain screen. I would like a 130" - 135" fixed screen in 16:9 format.
The Silver Ticket Ambient Light Rejecting Screens have a rated gain of 1.5 which probably "translates" into 1.2-1.3 "real-life gain". The screen material is supposedly very similar to the Elite Cinegrey 5D. Amazon.com has the 150" version for $599; there's also a 135" one for $499 but is out-of-stock.

Maybe, but without measuring it with accurate equipment in a controlled environment, nobody really knows.
