Browsing late at night. Are these Chinese screens worth considering at all? Or is this a run the other way as fast as possible kind of thing? Did some light research into screens when I first bought one, but considering a replacement

This one is also up for considering.

Gain of 1.5

Is that too high? Thoughts?

The trouble with screens is that they really matter. Until you see what a REAL screen like Stewart can do in your own setup you won't believe it. I say try and find a used STK130 at a low price and then love it.

Also, ask Justin... I gave him some advise on screens a while back and he was very happy Thumbs Up
