    Ive just bought myself an Optoma H78 projector and am now looking for a screen.

    The screen is to be eight foot wide and manual. I also need it custom made as I need a large drop due to a high ceiling.

    Ive narrowed it down to DRH screen vs Beamax. They are both of gain 1.
    However, the Beamax is coming in at approx £100 dearer.

    Does anyone think there will be a noticeable difference in picture quality between these 2 screens? If not, I will happily go for the DRH screen and put the £100 elsewhere.

    Otherwise, if the Beamax will provide a better picture I dont mind spending the extra money.

    I would do a search for screen fabric, I cant remember the site name but they sell fabric for .57p a cm.in various widths. Its matte white 1.1gain so all you need is a frame and you can build any custom size you require.
