First of all, thanks for your warm welcoming, Ronald, as I came here looking for a piece of advice and yes, I'm already enjoying your forum. Recently I got Epson 3100 and now I'm hooking it with my laptop and PS. My gaming/home theater room is a basement room with no windows, so no ambient light here. The wall I plan to use is completely flat and white, and I've been thinking about repainting it for better results (just in case, I'm looking for suggestions on screen paint color/mix). Of course, I did my homework and checked out some guides before writing this. But according to some forums and reviews, it might be better to make a DIY screen (to my surprise, but I really liked this DIY option). Though I haven't found one thread that actually shows a side by side comparison of screen paint and basic homemade screens (if I missed something like this on here somehow, I'd ask you to share it in comments!). I'm open to suggestions, as I've already seen that painting wall is not "the least expensive way to go" as I hoped, especially considering the price of paint. And that's why I'd like to weigh pros and cons of both setups before starting my project. Yes, I realize results won't be as good as with a proper screen, but right now I don't need it to be HD theater quality. Frankly, anything would be better than what we have right now and yes, I'm going to upgrade my setup step by step with time. I just need to start. So I'd be more than glad to learn from you. Thanks again. Nick.
