Wow, how to decide which projection screen to buy for a home-theater system? For example, below are just three of many options on eBay, ranging from about $25 to $100:

"Acoustically transparent screen has a gain of 1.0 and is bright white for a large viewing angle.

"The most versatile screen surface and the premier choice when ambient light is controllable. It evenly distributes light over a wide viewing area while colors remain bright and life-like, with no shifts in hue. Gain 1.0 Viewing Angle 50°

"A brand new never used piece of rubberized matte white canvas screen material. Gain of 1.3."

Is there a thread on this forum or someplace elsewhere on the web where a newbie like myself can learn about the dos and don'ts of buying front-projection screens? Or any suggestions that anyone would like to make here.

Thanks!
Bill
