These screens are fantastic... the value for the money is incredible. I ve had several over the years, and especially glad to have one in white now, to match the ceiling and go "low profile".
**Motorized feature is great for the "wow" factor when friends visit... saves you the hassle of yanking down a screen (and perhaps yanking it out of the ceiling if something catches).
**The image on screen is MUCH better than projected on a wall. I projected on white walls for years and was dumbfounded what I had been missing by not using a screen. If you re projecting on a wall, GET A SCREEN!
**The remotes are line of sight, so be aware of this when mounting. The screen does come with a little IR extender, but it s not the greatest design.
**The price for a screen this size is unheard of in the industry. It s an incredible deal, especially when coupled with a 1080p projector and bluray... you ll be blown away.
**Customer Services is AWESOME. They heard about my troubles out of the box (see below) and sent me a new screen, only asking for a section of the "old" screen to be cut out and sent in with the remotes. They sent the replacement via courrier at their expense. THAT is excellent customer service.
**The screen brackets were bent out of the box... I had to bend back to get it to line up correctly and the powder-coated paint chipped off where the bends were. Not a huge deal, but lame for a brand-new out of the box experience.
**The screen had some white fingerprints that were, while feint, still surprising to see... Someone in the factory obviously handled it while it was not dry or something... BUT as I mentioned above, the company made good.
**Do NOT order the $18 universal remote control or the $18 projector mount (they are advertised on materials shipped with the screen). The remote couldn t learn ANY of our electronics (Sony, Pioneer, Time Warner cable box, etc.) and the projector mount looks like it s for a barbie kit. No bueno.
Regardless of my (probably rare) bad experience, these screens are an AMAZING value for the money. Just look it over carefully when you unbox it. If it looks good, you can count on years of service and all your friends going "wow"!
