    Project the image on the cloth or rubber side?
    Does it make much of a difference either way?

    Usually, image is projected on the rubbery side...the grey side. Although u can always check it out urself which looks better for u. Remember the dictum, " Regardless of what others say, if it works for u, to hell with them! "

    Or, to paraphrase Duke Ellington, "if it looks good, it is good."

    My friend projects on the cloth side. We looked at both sides and decided we like the cloth better.

    I use the cloth side because the rubber side had some imperfections. Looks great although I never did compare the two.
    What side did you go with?

    I went with the rubber side.
    It's only a temporary screen. Within the next fews weeks I am going to order one once I make up my mind which direction to go in. My wife says this one is good enough. She can't see how the picture will improve with a different screen.

    Maybe after I calibrate the projector I will agree with her [​IMG]
