    Projection screen: motorized or manual? (gain?)

    I plan to put a projector in my basement family room and thus need a projection screen. I plan to have a 42 flat screen on the wall for normal use, then drop the screen and use the projector for evening/movie watching, etc.

    Any suggestions on manual versus motorized? I've found manual screens for about $150 and motorized for about $250, but the manual has a gain of 1.8 versus 1.0 for the motorized. Any suggestions on manual versus motorized, or thoughts on the importance of "gain" appreciated.

    gain isn't as critical as it used to be but you would still need uniform light distribution. I think a more important factor would be size and the type of material it should be constructed of. If its' motorized you need to determine how you would control it-wall switch,IR remote, etc.. and placement, i.e. in the ceiling or wall mounted
