    Just built a screen out of materials purchased off Ebay. Using a panasonic ptl700u picture looks great. Spent only about $60 total on materials and am wondering if there would be a significant improvement if I bought an $800+ screen? Any advice on screens and materials would be appreciated.

    Raoul, what material did you buy? I made my own screen out of Blackout cloth from Joann Fabrics, and I'm very happy with it. You may get a slight improvement, buy an extra $740 worth? I DON'T THINK SO. You said it yourself, the "picture looks great". Sit back, relax, and enjoy your screen.

    Projectors and screens are hardly a beginner-level topic, so let's move this thread from Basics to Display Devices. Please note the purpose of the Basics area: general discussion at the beginner level (without specific purchasing advice). Thanks!
