    Hi

    I have a 16:9 projection and I have two manual screen options in my local supplier :

    First option :

    1:1 screen ----> 2 meters x 2 meters

    Second option :

    16:9 screen ----> 2 meters x 1.25 meters

    ( more expensive)

    Questions :

    1) ok ... I know that I have 16:9 PJ ... but as I have in both screens the same width ( 2 meters ) I suppose that I can use the 1:1 screen to project correctly a source image of 16:9 ... Am I right?

    2) Are there any disavantages I should know in buying a 1:1 screen with the same width of a 16:9 screen?

    I will mostly watch 16:9 dvd´s ... but the 1:1 screen in much cheaper...

    thanks

    No real difference assuming the screens are the same - same material, gain etc.

    The 16/9 screen probably has a black border up top which is always good. Black (absorbant) borders increase perceived contrast.

    A masked/bordered 16/9 screen would be preferable but your money/choice.
