    I had a great experience with Stuart’s Film screen. As I posted earlier, I was getting the new JVC 4k projector, the 3000. (Also known as the N9)
    First I wrote Stuart’s to find out what was available and asked for local dealers. They sent me a list, but, sadly, while the dealers were anxious to sell me the 110” 16:9 StudioTek 130, they did not have it on display and did not know much about it.

    Robert Keeler, the Vice President of Sales, had his phone number on the email so I figured I would try it. He was incredibly nice and informative and we spent over a half an hour on the phone. He didn’t “push” the more expensive Studio Tek and, perhaps, was steering me to their less expensive Cima line. He carefully explained the difference between the products. Not just on the screen, but how they were framed and built.

    At first he was not familiar with the JVC 3000 (He knew it as their N9) but then he discovered I was getting the same machine with 2,220 lumins and could do an 8K image. He shifted to the StudioTek. He explained why and how the StudioTek would be more suitable.

    But the big surprise is that he told me NOT to get the Studio Tek 130, but get the 100. He explained that the image would be too bright with 2,200 lumins and your eyes would get tired using the 130.

    I am so glad he took the time to explain all this to me. I do wish the dealers were more informed.

    The 100 is an awesome screen. Perfect color accuracy and doesn't hot spot at all. In a light controlled room, that's the screen I'd go with.

    I think that Stuarts is that guy who drives the "white van" and sells "custom" screens made from white bed sheets stretched and mounted onto 2"x4" lumber. To his credit, he makes them in a variety of sizes.......twin, full, queen, king, and California King.

    Getting to the white Stewart screens, my screen is gray. After switching projectors, I initially thought my whites wouldn't be white. However, now I wonder if the image might be too bright with one of the newest white screens. I suppose it depends on how you watch movies and I watch in complete darkness.

    Either way, it's great that the sales guy took the time to assist you with your selection.

    First the good news. I got the Stewarts studio Tek 100 screen today. It took about two hours to put up.

    the disappionting news is that the JVC 3000 projector has been delayed again, possibly to the end of this month. I am beginning to think this projector is a rumor.

    the screen however is great with my old projector and really smooths out the picture. I went from 108 to 110 inches.

    i have a perfect view tech 108 screen. It is nicely protected andin my gargage. If you live on Long Island and need a screen, let me know. I am sure we can work something out.

    Good to hear you like the new screen. I suspected you would.

    I know your frustration about receiving a product, new to the market. You get all excited about the announcement, do your research, and find someone to place an order with only to play the waiting game.
