Home Theater Projection Screens

Evan Powell, June 3, 2004

Earlier this year we called upon six manufacturers of projection screens to supply samples of their best white and gray home theater screens for review. We received a total of twelve screens. Since then we have spent countless hours evaluating each of these products both individually and in side-by-side comparisons. Our observations and comments have been collected and organized here for your use. We hope you will find this information helpful in the planning of your home theater.
