    I have about £300 to spend on a 16:9 screen, for use with a Sony VPL-HS10.

    What would be my best option? Permanently fixed, mobile? White or grey?

    Draper and Stewart seem like options, as far as I can tell?

    Is it better to have it fixed to the wall or ceiling that on a tripod/stand?

    Also, does anyone know if the projector itself comes with a stand, if you don't want to ceiling mount it?

    I'd say if you feel up to it and can accommodate a fixed screen, try making one yourself - plenty of threads here about that - try the DIY forum too.

    I couldn't keep my screen up all day in the lounge, so I went with an 80" wide Draper Luma pull down screen. Mounts off two large screw eyes and is easy to use. Cost me £300 from av-sales, but other makes are available elsewhere for less.

    I'd also go for a white screen.

    Thanks for that, so you reckon white is definitely better than grey?

    I think a few people have suggested grey may be better for use with the HS10, but I may be wrong.

    Thanks again!
