Hiya,

Trying to wade through the jungle of screen options - this is even trickier than choosing a projector!

My first question is this - are there any benefits to an electrical screen other than convenience? (ie does this have any impact on screen quality and thus image quality?)

cheers,

Martin

No it has no impact what so ever on the image quality i would say unless you have a remote control with your electric screen there is not much point in having one ,its for people like me who are to lazy to get of there arse. They are a must in my opinion.

rob12770 - whats strange about the poll??

Im actually now leaning towards rearranging the room so I can project against a DIY fixed screen after reading all the horror stories about curling and wavy pull-down/electric screens...

I had a DIY fixed job in my old place and loved it, but it's not exactly unobtrusive...

yes BFG but this poll has nothing to do with Fixed screens !
its electric VS pulldown, which IS strange.

ok, I see your point, but the idea was purely to try distinguish if there was any perceived difference in image quality between an electrical and a manual pull-down screen...

I think most would agree that a fixed screen will beat any pull-down screen if the material is the same.... Then its just a question of whether thats practical or has WAF... In my case, originally the screen was supposed to drop down over two large windows - fixed just wouldn't work... Hence my interest in seeing if an electric pull down made a difference over a manual one...

cheers,

Martin

yeah, I would prefer a fixed screen too but alas not possible in my house :(
the only bad thing about a CRT PJ is its size.
