Hello!

I have read a lot about to make a great screen for my home projector but I'm still confused... I need quiet good quality around 108" screen material. I have problem to make my room completely dark sometimes. I have checked about Carl's blackout clothes. But is i really good quality? I will be very happy if you can help me!! Right now I'm watching on my wooden frame 108" with grey cheap blackout polyester material and it's ok but only ok. So please help me to get something better

Could be, I know it's only Hd ready. But it says 480i/p, 576i/p, 720p, 1080i/p in technical data but anyway I just want to do the best of the situation, I built my wooden frame for the reason to mount some good material on it. The polyester gray material i bought was just for testing, so if you can advise me where to buy good material I will be greatfull!!

How much do you want to spend?

There is Stewart.
There is Screen Research.
There is Seymour.

Up to say maximum 3-400$. Because right now I use very cheap polyester blackout cloth for around 50$. So if you know some good material I will be happy. I'm new to projector but I'm very impressed for the cheap projector I bought

Thx for this but they are way over my budget. Maybe it's not possible to build my own projector screen ..... :(
