    Screen for a new projector advice for a beginner with no knowledge?

    Looking at possibly getting an LG HU80KA as my first every projector. I know even less about screens than I do about projectors. Thanks for any basics in starting a search for a screen.

    I am also getting a new 4k projector and upgraded my screen. It was suggusted here, and I got a Stewart screen. The best thing to do,is actually call them and tell them the type of room it is going in and what projector you ate using. They spent a lot of time with me but I got a great screen

    Stewart would certainly be a great choice. There are a lot of good screens out there but Stewart is what I own.

    Screen Innovations Zero Edge screens are also very nice and like the name suggests, almost frameless. https://hometheaterreview.com/screen...reen-reviewed/

    Advice: Get a tab-tensioned or fixed-frame screen.

    The ones that just unroll without support will develop waves and creases, etc. And even out of the box have some of that already-

    Yep, I agree. My first screen was a roll-up screen but it wasn't one of the better tab-tensioned ones. Despite me trying to be very careful when letting it up it creased and of course, I didn't know until you let it back down.

    My personal choice would be a good quality fixed screen if it's possible for your room. Otherwise, Brandon's suggestion is the way to go.

    Maybe something like this?

    I'll have to look at Stewart.

    Yes, they are rather pricey. That's the main reason that I'm still using one of their older model fixed screens.

    I still say get the projector first and experiment a bit with image size and projector placement. As for the one you linked to, I haven't heard of that company. It's not that it's a bad screen, I just don't know anything about it.
