I recently aquired a free projector.
It is a proxima DP5100A.
It is old, but works, and looks like new.
I'm looking to get a bigger screen, for I only have a 5' by 5' screen now.
I'm looking for something in the 84" by 84", and to cost under a $150 bucks, and be just a manual screen.
I found a few online, but not sure if I'm looking for what I need.
seems the research I've done showa that I would need a high gain with my projector, but with the higher gain, it seems the viewing angle gets less.

Can someone help me out?

HTDepot.com offers best projector screen value for home theater offers cheap screens. Your initial post is rather confusing with the 5 feet by 5 feet screen. So take a look there and go for a hi gain screen which may help you in your case.
