    I bought one of those from them and it was fine. Intoav where also very helpful when I phoned them to ask about replacing the mains cable on it, its a thick black cable and I wanted to replace it with a white one.

    I just bought a Grandview 7ft (16:9) white matte pull-down screen.
    I am in Australia and paid $590, which is very cheap.
    I am using an InFocus 5700 DLP projector and am pleased w/ the performance of my screen.
    However, I will say that I don't see much difference than when I was projecting on the beige wall of my flat. (Most notable improvement was during day, for now I don't have as much fade from ambient light)
    But, "bang for the buck" this one is worthwhile. I asked the guy at a store who was displaying my same Infocus DLP model about the screen they were using (white matte). And he said that if you have a good projector (which I think I have) any screen w/ too much gain may wash-out your picture by turning blacks into gray. Gain on these are 1.1.
    To step up to next level of screen means paying triple what I paid.
    cheers from down under,
    Leightos
