The Sherwin-Williams paint specified here did not work for me at all. I have a Panasonic PT-AE8000U projector sitting on a shelf about 12.5 feet from the projection wall (standard textured drywall), pretty much at a dead center position. The SW paint was way too bright, even at the lower lamp setting, with bad glare and hot spots. I next tried a standard Behr paint color, "Silent White" (which is actually a med-light grey tone) in an eggshell finish and it produced a better -- but not perfect -- result. There was still some glare and the picture was now too dark overall, with skin tones suffering that ashen look -- but the blacks looked very good. So, I mixed in some of another standard Behr paint, "Whisper White", that I had used painting my ceilings, which is a light white color. This paint is a flat-matte finish, which I hoped would tone down the glare I was still seeing, and the white color would lighten the too-dark grey "Silent White" paint. I used a mix of about 2/3 "Silent White" eggshell finish with 1/3 "Whisper White" flat/matte finish. I can only approximate the ratio because I was eyeballing it for color as I mixed it. I still wanted a grey tint but just much lighter than the standard "Silent White". Well, after six coats of paint (2 each of the SW and Behr colors), all I can say is it looks pretty darn terrific on my living room wall. The texturing on the drywall is hardly noticeable, unless one is looking at a pure white scene, and even then it is not bad. I have a screen size that is approximately 120 inches and I'm seated about 11 ft away, so it's very immersive and I'm close enough that if there were issues with the drywall texturing I'd see it. I road tested a few different blu-ray discs. Avatar looked fantastic, as did Tropic Thunder. To see how it rendered darker movies, I used Sweeney Todd. The blacks looked outstanding. The opening scene on the ship, docks and streets of London is a real test for the rendering of black tones. So, for well under $50 (including a cheap roller and plastic paint tray!) I have a screen that looks better than my previous Da-Lite Model B High Contrast Matte White. I will finish it off with some black gaffer's tape around the edge. Whenever I sell the house, the tape will come off easily and I'll just roll over the screen with my standard wall color. ☺
