Seriously I'm a noob to this, but I feel like if the ambient light is fine in my room, then why can't I just go with a cheap screen like this?

I'm still planning on building a screen for about the same price... will it really be much better than soething like this? I have an epson 8350, and am planning on 110" at least, but either way this seems fine. Once again I'm a new to this. Thanks for any help!

This is a square screen, the aspect ratio of HD is 16:9 not 1:1. The screen will wrinkle quickly if not right out of the box. You would be better off with a DIY if you can mount a fixed frame. You should spend some time in the DIY sub forum there is lots of help there.

Yeah I figured that out as soon as I posted it. I'm probably sticking with my own DIY, so I will be doing some research. Thanks!
