    Hi there,

    I am living in Denmark, but due to high prices, I am looking into buying a Da-Lite screen from abroad. I am mostly interested in an electrical/motorized screen with the High Contrast Matte White material for an LCD projector. Probably going to be around 92" in diameter or 80" in width (16:9 format).

    So, where have you been getting your Da-Lite screens from (and how much did you pay)?

    BTW when Da-Lite states the screen width is 80", does that include the black borders (so that the actual whiteish surface, i.e. viewing area is less than that in width)?

    Thanks! :)

    Hi jsadts

    Try http://www.direkt2u.co.uk/ I use the modelb pull down 80" wide 16:9 screen with an extra 12" drop, I payed approx £250 delivered.
    The size of the da-lite screen is the white area, it does not include the border.

    Hi Tim,

    and thanks for your reply. Are you sure about the width of the visible/white area? Could I get you to measure yours and state what the total width (incl. black borders) is and what the stated width was from Da-Lite.

    Some other screen manufacturers list the width as the total width, that is why I'd really like you to double-check.

    Thanks!

    I had to double check this myself with direkt2u before purchasing.
