You need to slant them slightly to achieve the correct result, but it is quite a decent alternative to projectors.You need to spend good money on your screens, tho. I bought Samsung high def lcd smart TV's and keep the hertz rating down, you want 100khz models.I've got mine hooked up to a 3960x pc running two GTX 680's and a display port dual head to go, the output is spectacular.I haven't mounted my 46" models yet, as I'm still working on my sidewalls, but I'll throw a few pics up when I get close to finished.Oh, and yes, I went this way, because I didn't have the room and didn't want to be flying with one 55" screen our front.Here's a few snaps from a video I took a while back:Frank Cooper

This is the way to go with WidevieW.I've always been a fan of this technology. It's cheap(er), low maintenance, no bulbs to buy, etc.Here's a question for those using this.If I were to use two 32" monitors for the forward display, what do you tell wideview to use for angles on these two?
