I am purchasing my first screen for my Z2. I don't have a big budget (less than $250) so am considering the following:

Draper Luma Manual High Contrast Grey.
Da-Lite Model B Nominal picture area (what does that mean?) without CSR Matte White ($20 cheaper than the Draper)
Da-Lite Model B with CSR Matte White ($100 more than the Draper)

I think I would be pretty careful with returning the screen to the case (although I do not know if my wife would be as careful) so right now I am leaning towards the high contrast grey Draper screen because I believe this is better for the Z2 and ambient light situations.

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks.

I'd also like to throw the Elite range into the mix also. Specifically, el-cheapo Elite models over at tigerdirect.

If those are all pull-down screens you won't be happy very long. They all develop wrinkles from what I've read at Avsforum.com, and there's no way to fix them. That's why I built my own screen.

I've had my Da-lite pulldown screen for over 3 years and have not had a problem with wrinkles.
