Studio Tek 100 and 130
« on: June 02, 2021, 11:02:47 AM »
      It’s a bit of a long story but Stuart’s Projection Screens originally, and unintentionally, sent me the wrong screen.  I wanted the Studio Tek 130, at 110 inches)  and I was sent and installed the 100. We, the VP and I, had talked about both and I assumed I was getting the 130 and he thought I meant the 100. It was a legitimate misunderstanding and no one did anything wrong.
 
I had to pay the difference (and an additional installation fee) but Stewarts sent me the correct screen and I got to compare the two with my JVC 3000 projector. Just the screen was replaced, the frame was not replaced, but reused. It took a bit of time to get, they shipped it from California to me on Long Island.
 
The screens are similar. The 130 gave a bit more contrast and color, but the biggest difference is that the 130 looks much better when there is ambient light in the room. I am glad I got the 130 and now suggest that to anyone who has a room that is not completely dark.
 
They did not ask for the Studio Tek 100 to be returned. So all 110 inches of it are rolled up in their shipping container and is safely in my garage. I don’t think it can be sold in a garage sale.

Glad the mix up was cleared and that you are enjoying the screen. I guess you can keep the other one as backup in case something happens to the original or you can use it for another room if needed. :)

The 130 has a higher gain, 1.6 as opposed to the 1.0 of the 100.

It has the potential to be brighter but I would have thought the 130 would be lower contrast when your room is dark. I'm still running my old Gray Hawk from when I had a DLP projector. I think its gain is around .9.

The 130 has a gain of 1.3. And in a good dark non reflective room, my 130 has just as good contrast as my Firehawk did . See this thread - Grey Or White Screen ( why I switched to a white screen ) - Screens (General) - AVS Discussions (avscience.com)

I would love to give it to a charity that needed it but I don’t know a charity that needs it.

Yeah, it's not much good without a frame.
