    I'm after a 4:3 grey screen, and I'd like to order from someone that has stock in the UK (not a company that orders from the US, and won't accept returns).

    I've searched and not found anything suitable. Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    Hi Dan. The Draper high contrast grey is the only one I've found available at all (ignoring no brand options). It's a 2 or 3 weeks wait for it to arrive from the US. Ivojo got Draper to send them a sample, to send to me. Even that took a week, so I wouldn't expect a screen in 2 weeks. I haven't tried the sample yet (difficult to tell much on a few inch patch), but I think it's probably my best option. The only alternative is to spend a lot of money on a react ii, and I can't afford that.

    Yeh im in the same boat, should be moving at the end of the year and theres no way im dropping £1500 on a react as i will have a dedicated ht in new house.
    Please let me know how you find the luma, my ebay one improved black and contrast quite a bit was great but the surface was poor and sparkled, it also has vertical lines from the printing process.
    Someones making silly money on these screens must be a market for a midrange option, its so hard to find a grey screen for under a grand!

    Yeah, as I said above, I have it - still not tried it though as I'm busy working. I was in a rush to get a screen (for work), and missed my deadline, so it's wait a while now.

    Oo, I should try and bully you into ordering it so you can tell me what it's like...

    In stock! You'd be mad not to order it - the sample I've got is the best piece of screen material ever made. If you don't order that screen and report back to AVF you're a loser!*

    Just order it online. The advantage is, if you don't like it, you can return it (after all, it says it's in stock). I can't do that, as they have to order mine from the US.
