This review is a long time in coming. I received the Carada Brilliant White screen over a month ago, but with projectors stacked up to review, assembly required, and a new testing room being completed, I finally got it assembled and mounted days before Superbowl, and have now used the Carada screen for viewing 6 different projectors (5 home theater, and one business projector). Again, this screen is mounted in my testing area/office, and is far away from my standard home theater screen, a 128" motorized Firehawk by Stewart.
And I am finally ready to comment on it.
First I should mention that when I spoke to the folks at Carada, I had originally anticipated getting one of their High Contrast Grey screens. However upon dicussing it with them, they recommended I try the Brilliant White. I also figured that, I know how several brands of HC gray screens work with most home theater projectors, and that working with a high gain screen like the Brilliant White would improve my perspective. Many people have dark walled theaters and no ambient light, and many may need a bright screen with some of the less bright home theater projectors.
When it comes to price, Carada has a big advantage on most manufacturers. They sell directly to the end user, not through dealers. That of course saves the buyer money. To put things in perspective I have priced below the selling price of this particular Carada screen, with similar gain, surface, and framed screens from two major competitors, Stewart Filmscreen, and Da-Lite. Carada's prices are what you will pay. With Da-lite you should be able to get a discount - and (though I am no expert), a 20% discount would probably be really good. With Stewart, you can probably find a discount as well, but in talking to dealers, I'm told Stewart has less profit margin in their screens than Da-lite, so the discounts would be smaller
