I know this had been discussed in a few other threads but no one has really stated if its as good or better than using screen material. Ive had a 6' wide 16:9 fixed foamex screen for 2yrs now and have allways been happy with it. I recently got some screen fabric samples as ive always been curious what the difference would be if proper screen material was used. When i tried the matt white material the picture was not as bright as the foamex and looked dulled down ,does anyone know if foamex has any gain and if so does this affect the black levels. As my samples were quite small it was difficult to see any difference in black levels but the brightness difference was easily noticable. Didnt like the grey sample as it looked too dark but am interested in some more info or screen shots of goo versus a mat white screen.
