    As the title states I need screen recommendations for an Epson 5030 projector. I'm currently experiencing a hot spot with my Elite screen that I'm using. I'm looking for a 16:9 aspect ratio 120" fixed screen. Viewing distance is 10 to 15 feet away from the screen and I have good light control in the room. I would like to stay below $500.00 if it's possible.

    I have hot spotting with my Epson 9500UB on a 110" 16x9 Da-lite JKP Affinity Screen with .09 gain. I sit 12' from the screen and I was told that it's caused by the angle of the projector, not the screen.

    I'm replacing it next week with a Epson 6040 in the same position and I wonder if it will still get me that hot spotting. If so, then I'll just lower/raise up the PJ.

    If you have that option, give it a try and get back to me.
