Help Selecting Screen
Trying to find a decent 100" screen for my new setup. Projector is an Epson 2030. Been through a few cheap screens already- waste of $$. They all come with waves, curled edges, etc. etc.
Going to move up to a nicer, tab-tensioned screen. Thinking of this one:
VApex VAPEX9100TN VApex Electric Tensioned for $679 from Visual Apex
Anyone have it? Or any other thoughts?

Visual Apex has some nice screens and the tensioned ones are better for not wrinkling.
This is a nice clean looking screen. It would likely be on my short list if I needed a new one.

Just pulled the trigger on this guy:
Amazon.com: SMT-43100 Silver Ticket 100" Diagonal Dual Wall/Ceiling Mounted Tab-Tensioned Motorized Electric Screen: Electronics
Big discount, good reviews. We shall see.
This will be my third screen for my new setup.
Also on my fourth projector, my 2nd projector mount, my 3rd HDMI cable and . . . I think that's it. I am hard to please, apparently.

60" x 80" is a 4:3 ratio. Not a total deal breaker if you don't mind the addition unused portion at the top and bottom.
Otherwise look for a 16:9.

I'd never buy a 4X3 screen..ever.David Vaughn
