My Silver Ticket screen came in and I've assembled it but have not yet mounted it to the wall. Seems to be a nice screen and a great value. I got it from Amazon and it was one of those used "open box" buys -- stated to have no defects other than damaged packaging. With free shipping, I paid $164 after sales tax. it is pretty big at 138" diagonal. As noted in reviews, installation instructions are not great but it wasn't too hard to figure out how to put it together. Overall, pretty satisfied with purchase. I don't know how the performance will be once I project an image on it (still deciding on projector) but the reviews state it is comparable to most other screens priced much higher so I'm fairly sure it will do just fine. Here it is fully assembled.
Thanks for all of the suggestions everyone! It looks like my dad ended up buying a TV on his own after telling me last week he was in no hurry. He did shop around and ended up buying a 60" Sony at Wal-Mart. Based on what he told me, I believe it was the Sony KDL60R510A and he got it for $750. He seems to be happy.
