    I'm helping my dad build a home cinema in his house, he's probably going to be getting a sanyo z2, which will be shining onto a nice manual drop down screen. The question is which one? Here's some details:

    Needs to be between about 92" and 106"

    Obviously needs to be a 16:9 screen, black borders and an extra wide top border to drop it down from the ceiling a bit.

    Will be viewed in a nice dark room.

    What do people recommend given these things, I've seen a draper screen for about £210, is this a decent screen or are there others around a similar price which would be better.

    TIA
    Owain

    Projecta Procinema.

    Extra large "drop" & good screens IMO.

    Bit more than the Drapers though but.......

    How long is "since day one", just to get some idea of wrinkle free life so far? I'm trying to decide on a screen for imminent Z2 :rolleyes: and the 7Ft. Grandview is guaranteed wrinkle-free. Possibly the manual would be best (for me) so then I could adjust its lower position for 16:9 or 2.35:1 etc.. and its also less than half the price of the electric one.

    Thanks, Mark
