    I also have a 4805 with projector mounted on wall. I also will give a vote of confindence for the DRH, although I went for a manual 5.5 ft and a unity gain.

    I have a Z2 and a DRH slimline 8ft electric screen and I recommend them
    as well. I've had the screen for approx. 4 months and had no issues with them at all!

    My screen is a matt white with a screen gain of 1.0 and it suits the 4805 just fine!!

    Basically, some screens reflect more light than others. See DRH screens website for details or checkout Stewartscreen's website. It will give you a good idea what type of screen you need.
    If you have a lot of ambient light in your viewing room you may need to have a high power or high gain screen(reflects more light). On the other hand you make have a very dark viewing room you may go for a lower gain screen i.e 1.0 gain
    I decided on a DRH 1.0 gain screen and also use a 4805 wall mounted PJ. Contacted DRH screens and they sent me some samples.
