Hello all, guys. Yesterday we finally upgraded our standard white screen, to one of the Elite Screens ALR screens (model ER100DHD3). The uptick in black level and contrast was immediate, so yay! But ALSO the downside in details and sharpness was also shocking notable. To make things even worst, I noticed several areas on the screen that look like dirt. You can even see them when the screen is not being projected. Any ideas? The screen was brand new and package came in pristine. Thank you.

I might give Elite a call to find out what is going on.

I have said repeatedly that I absolutely am not a fan of ALR screens. They cause far too much image damage when in use to be suitable for anything but the worst rooms. The money spent is far better spent on room improvements.

So, while I have to say that I can't recall seeing the screen appear 'dirty'. There is no question that hotspotting, sparkling, and brightness uniformity issues are major problems I have seen with all of them.

Thank you. Yes, I've waiting to hear from Elite for a few days now. It's too bad, because contrast greatly improved. Since the projector is located in a white walled living room, there's zero chance to "improve" the room for the moment
