Works Great for our Backyard Theater
Used this screen for a backyard theater and even though I use a Cheap LED low lumen projector, the screen still catches every bit of it’s light. Very easy to set up and take down, I just hang it off my deck, and the soft close feature is very nice.
Unobstrusive. Some rippling that won’t go away, but adjustments removed other ripples.
I have 9-foot ceilings and have the screen mounted on the wall about 4 inches from the ceiling. It works perfectly and the screen position, with the extra drop, is perfectly at eye level. I don’t feel like I’m looking upwards or straining my neck. Overall, a great purchase and I’d get it again. But here are some pros and cons from using it for a few months and moving it once or twice.
Great for Backyard Theater
I set up a backyard theater using this screen, an Acer H5380BD projector and a VIZIO SB3820-C6 38-Inch 2.0 Channel Sound Bar (go with the 38″, not the 29″).
It works… but the distortion is annoying.
It has quality construction and functions well. The only reason I won’t give it more stars is because after a week the ripples and waves have doubled. It still functions fine but the waves in the screen distorts the image. If you are on a budget and don’t have the option of a fixed screen or the money for a tension pull down this will work in a fix.
Bright and crystal clear image, but do not expect a flat surface
I really wanted to love this screen. Elite Screens are well reviewed, so I felt I was going with a safe option. But ultimately, it’s not a huge step up from the cheaper brands I’ve used in the past. The biggest problem is screen ripples, which I was aware of based on many other reviews, but I had hoped that given the quality of the material used, it might not be as noticeable as others said it was. It is very noticeable. Truth be told, this seems like an unavoidable problem if you’re going with a retractable screen. There seems to be no way to get a completely flat surface without either going for a tab-tensioned screen (that costs more than twice as much) or a fixed screen. I went the route of a pull-down screen because I knew I wanted to be able to conceal the screen when not in use (it’s hanging in my bedroom and as much as I LOVE my movie-theater-in-the-bedroom setup, I’d much rather it look like just a bedroom when I’m not watching a movie). So, it’s a trade off. I get a clean-looking bedroom wall during the day at the cost of a not-so-flat image at night when I’m watching movies. For some, it may not be that big of an issue, but it’s bothersome whenever there are pans or camera moves that go from left to right. You’ll notice the image rippling, which just kind of pulls you out of the grandeur of it all. I’m a little disappointed, and will likely work my way up to a tab-tensioned screen in the future. The image quality of my BenQ HT2050 is just way too amazing to waste on a rippled screen.
Good product, need better packaging
