Hello everyone. I just purchased a ViewSonic LS830 UST projector and now in the market for a screen. I am looking at Elite Screens Aeon CLR as it's specifically designed for the UST projector but it would cost me $1000 which is a bit pushing it. Is there an alternative that is just as good or very close to for cheaper or will i havebto bite the bullet and spend the money? TIA! *Super new to projector scene*

What are your room conditions?

This projector is designed for brighter rooms and not at all designed around home theater use, so your results will be in line with that design.

If your room doesn't have any lighting issues, then a standard white screen will work just fine, like the Silver Ticket white screens available on Amazon.

The Aeon CLR screen is a ambient light rejecting screen, and at $1,000 is a bargain. If you have ambient light you are dealing with, which would make sense based upon the projector choice, then the Aeon screen is a good match.

Otherwise, if you have good room lighting control, not only is the Aeon a bad choice, so is the projector.

Projector was chosen based on space avaliable. I needed a table top since its a smaller sized living room.plus the price was $1500....i see them everywhere for 2.5-3k. The lighting conditions "could" be controlled but with windows all around and spot lights it would mean id havevto only watch in darkness...so i guess ill have to dish out the $1000. Thank you for the advice!!
