As I've said many times now, I have an AE200 and watching it total blackout on a 7ft wide screen in a totally blacked out room. Projection wall painted matt black and surronding walls painted a darkish matt blue. My screen is white blackout cloth which was fabric on one side and a sligthly less brilliant white rubbery coating on the other side. After a quick test (long time ago now) I found out you got a sharper image on the rubbery side so that's what I'm projecting on. Have calibrated the projector and it's all about as bright as I can make it. On NORMAL mode, just a tweak to brightness and contrast. Using a scene of Gladiator, if I take any settings any higher I will start loosing detail, so I'm about as far as I can go. The thing is................ I kinda feel I'd like a bit more PUNCH from the image. It looks very clear and detailed, but it's not exactly jumping out of the screen at me. Black are grey, but I don't really care about that to much. I know you can't have any GAIN screen on a LCD really, else you get bright spots. The light fusion screens sounded excellent if you could get the bloke to make you one. Just wondered if it's my projector, or the screen which is stopping the image jump out of the screen at me. Looks a bit flat I guess you could say.
