The light at the top & bottom on a 16.9 image got right on my nerves, so I made my screen from MDF board painted with non reflective matt white paint, at least three coats. I took into acount the light at the top and bottom on a 16.9 image and painted a big black border around the outsides , this adds percieved contrast to the image and hides the light at the top and bottom of image. The whole thing looks great. I spent a fiver on the board and 15 pounds on the paint and I got the INFOCUS X1 for 588 pounds. So for about 600 pounds I am watching a 73 inch 16.9 screen that's flatter than a plasma. You would have to pay 10 grand for a 73 inch plasma and I doubt the picture would be that great. It is nothing short of amazing the quality I am watching for so little money.
