    I'm looking for a cheap projector screen for my home theater.

    But I'm wondering why the prices vary so widely? I saw one 120" screen, white, that's electric, for $250, and another, silver, non-electric, for $1,600.

    I know the differences between white, gray and silver screens. I've been using my white wall all along, but I want to move the "TV" to the front of windows, which is why I'd love a electric screen. But is the $250 screen going to be *that* bad? (Link to the $250 screen.)

    Are there any other screens you guys would recommend? And please don't recommend DIY, I don't want to do it myself, and I want it to at least roll up, if not electric.

    I've been looking at going to a projector at home.

    Definitely believe that a screen makes a much better picture.

    I went to my local Yodobashi camera store and they had 10 plus screens on display. Definitely can see differences.

    Is there a store nearby that you can see the screens in action?
