    Hi All,

    I have recently completed my garage conversion that will be an office/cinema room and will be fitting my new Benq W1070 tomorrow. Next stage will be building a projector screen. This will be a DIY project :)

    I have spent some time researching material and have to say I am more confused now! I have come across the following two:

    MaxiWhite projection screen material - PSM Screens - Projector Screen Material (Gain 0.9)
    ProWhite projector screen material - PSM Screens - Projector Screen Material (Gain 1.0)

    I would love some advice/suggestions on either the below two or any other material available.

    My room is fairly dark (photo included of my room below -ignore the bed - it ha s been removed) So my I am a bit confused on what type of material & gain I should consider? Some say for a dark room a lower gain is better?? Any advice/guidance would be welcomed.

    Looks a great space :smashin: Nothing stopping you painting the wall if you want to keep costs down. There is another thread recently asking the same question.
