What is the difference between all these projector screens?

A screen is a screen right?  Why do the price ranges vary so much?  I have
no idea how to go about shopping for a screen.  I will only be using it for
video games if that matters.  I've decided on the BenQ PB6100 projector.
Can someone help get me in the direction of where to start?


Thanks,
Brad

Sure.  And a car is a car, a house is a house, and a woman is a woman.

It pays to shop around. And I've also noticed that for screens in
particular, it pays to avoid "Home Theater" dealers and buy from commercial
"Audio-Visual" dealers.

For instance, I recently needed a Da-Lite 60" x 80" high-contrast matte
white screen.   Calling several "Home Theater" dealers in my area, they
quoted from $500 to $700. But calling the local Audio-Visual dealer got me a
price of $240.

Perhaps there's some sort of trivial difference between the screen cloth
used for commercial applications versus Home Theater applications coming
from the same manufacturer, but I suspect it's just all in the marketing.
