I am possibly interested in purchasing a projector plus an electric screen to go with it .

I would want to project a widescreen image of about 40 inches.



What would be an average price for a screen like this?





Cheers in advance!

wow, 40"? Like chris said, I'm not tryint to be rude but I've got TVs bigger than that. Are you doing this just for the coolness factor of the projector? Or is there a reason that you want a 40" projection screen versus say a 52" HDTV?

I'm hoping to move into a new (but very tiny) flat soon.


A CRT in the flat would be near impossible. I can't decide to go for a LCD, 37 inch plasma or projector and screen option.

If you're using it as a tv, you'll have to factor in lamp life - 2000 hours is a rough average, and this can last as little as 6 months to a year before you need a new one. They can cost £300 or more a time.

You also need good light control with a projector to get the best image, as daylight etc will wash it out. Using a grey screen such as a Stewart Firehawk will help considerably, but those screens are expensive. There are alternative grey screens available if you need one though but I don't know how well they perform in comparison.

If light control isn't an issue, a good matt white painted wall will give similar performance to a matt white screen (provided the wall is flat etc) so you may not need to worry about a screen at all.

I think you'd be better off with a plasma if you're using it for tv as well as movies etc though.

Go for a plasma or LCD. Forget the projector & screen.
