    Hello. :)

    I've bought my 1st projector SONY 11HT couple of days ago. :D

    To me, this projector is more than enough. I'm very amused by the picture quality that 11HT provides.

    Now, I need a screen. about 100"~120"
    Please advice with the "good" screen with "reasonable" price.

    Any info, comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you. :)

    DaLite are pretty good. Go to www.direkt2u.co.uk or you could get an owl screen or one from screensuk. All have had good reports. If you have loads of money get a stewart grayhawk which will give you better blacks with the 11HT

    I bought a DaLite video spectra 1.5 gain electrol which looks very nice.

    With all single lens devices try to go for as flat (ie non reflective screen as possible) or you are very likely to get hot spots where you can see the beam of the projector reflected back.

    Plain photocopy paper is a gain of 1 you should aim for a gain around this for your projector.

    CRT require more and depending on room and viewing conditions can go as high as 2.5 ( ie 2.5 time more reflective than our sheet of paper

    Im looking at some screens also, and there are a few nicely priced ones at ProjectAVision , 153x200 cm manual £311 or electric £460.

    I don't know how these are different from any others, or anything else about screens at all, so maybe someone else can shed some light into this for us... please :)
