As I said, their white material is suitable for use in a room with minimum ambient lighting, but there is a good chance that any white ceilings will get blasted with some reflected light. If you want to minimize this, paint the ceiling or get a UST ALR screen like the model you listed previously.

The Silver Ticket website actually has a reasonable set of questions to ask you to determine the proper screen material...

Unfortunately, that doesn't really talk about their newest UST ALR screen which you did link above...

I would NOT EVER buy or recommend a UST screen. There are severe compromises to image quality and you pay a hefty premium to get those compromises to your image.

I would stick with the white screen.

Be aware that thin bezels are extremely difficult to work with, but you do you man.

I would get this:

If you go with the thin frame, good luck getting the image perfect on screen, and you pay a bit more...

Ok, I probably will choose one of normal Matt white screen.
But u advised first one with 249$ price, which without tension.
If read the description of the screens for thin frame stated following one:
“ This screen features the Silver Ticket tension rod system for truly quick and secure installation of the projection material. The tension rod system maintains the perfect amount of tension that will not ripple or sag and does not need adjusting. “
For this one (which you advised /249$) no any statements about tension which highly required for UST projectors as I know.

Oh, it uses a tension system.

About halfway down the page it is only one line, but it says:

"Silver Ticket Tension Rod System"

This is my default screen choice.

At the bottom of the page is also a link to their installation manual which shows the tension rod system itself.

I can guarantee that this screen is tensioned. All fixed frame screens on the market use a tensioning system of some kind.

Eventhought you use a normal matt white screen, you also need to choose a zero edge frame or thin fixed frame, because the thick frame will create the projection shadow on the screen when the ust projector works.
