    I've recently bought a Sanyo Z2 and am now trying to find a good screen so I have a few questions - any advice appreciated!

    - my budget is up to 800 pounds, i'd like it to be about 80" diagonally, 16:9

    - is there any point in going for an electric one?
    - where is the best place to get one? (online included)
    - any recommendation on make? i've looked at Draper, Beamaxed, Stewart etc but can't really tell which one's good just by looking at the website.
    - the most important factors would be the straightness, flatness of the screen, gain and what else?

    cheers

    kifimoto,

    I have OWL 7ft wide screen (can be seen on my www below). I cannot recommend this enough. I think that this was about £1k for the electric version.

    At the other end of the scale I have a 6ft DRH electric screen which cost under 400 quid. It does what it does very well.

    I would have thought that £800 was a bit excessive for a screen to be used with a Z2:eek:
    If your not bothered about it not being electric, you could pick up a 92" Projecta Procinema 16:9 with extra drop for around £200.
    I had one for my AE300, and its more than adequate.
    I believe the mighty 'Kramer' has one aswell.:smashin:

    I was hoping having a good screen can squeeze more quality out of the Z2? Where did you guys get yours? is there a good place to shop for them?
    cheers

    i've just had a look at some grandview electric screens and they are quite reasonable! the 8 ft ones are only 569 squid. (though i'm not really bothered about having electric ones....) (but it'd be nice...... ):confused:

    have you guys heard of this make?

    Had one ;)

    Currently using an Ellie 8' electric model & very happy with it too. Have seen their newer version recently & quality is excellent. Worth consideration.

    Off to the screen forum now.......moved.
