I have owned several Sony SXRD projectors. As a screen I have used a blank wall, a basic da-lite , a Sony ChromaVue HCS-W80 , and a used Stewart Firehawk. My home doesn't allow me to enjoy a windowless, dedicated home theater, and shares time as a living room with some measure of light present. I have often contemplated purchasing a new ambient Light rejecting screen. However, researching pricing from manufacturers was often difficult. Recently I dove back into the analysis. Long story short, I landed on an Elite Dark Star 122" fixed frame screen. What was the deciding factor in this purchase? Was it the positive reviews from respected publications? Was it Elite's right mix of attributes (gain, angle, ALR performance) that fit my application? Yes but no. In the end, it was discovering that trusted Retailer Crutchfield was offering the screen I wanted for sale. Since my earliest purchases of Concord car stereo in the 80's, I have always found Crutchfield's service and trustworthiness to be above reproach. They provide an invaluable service: piece of mind. Buy with them and rest assured they will do right by you. And So, it immediately became an easy decision. And Oh, by the way, although challenging to assemble, the Elite screen exceeded my expectations. It produces a wonderfully saturated image with great contrast in a well-lit room with plenty of recessed light fixtures. So, happy ending all around. Thanks Bill. Good to know in an evolving world, some things never change.
Pros: Strong Ambient light rejection from Recessed Lighting.Fair price for a product that solves many ills.
Cons: Only the necessary evil of many spring clips. But this can't be avoided so buck up and you will be rewarded accordingly.
