I finally received some sample screen materials from Da-Lite, specifically the High Power 2.8 Gain and Glass Beaded 2.5 Gain varieties. Putting them up against the wall was an immediate difference (ignoring the white balance):

After seeing the difference, I placed an order for a 72″ x 96″ Da Lite 2.8 gain screen. Here are the final results:

Not bad for a homemade 720p HD projector!
