Great screen for the price!!
I just completed a HT in a shared living space and this screen met all my needs!! It's mated with a Pioneer FPJ1 and does an excellent job in presenting HD material. I don't know how it compares to much more expensive screens, but it's wonderful for my needs. The sprayed on black velour on the frame does a great job of soaking up any excess light. Assembly was easy - so long as you take your time and use the additional change pages in supplied in the instructions. The frame looks to be redesigned as it’s now 6 pieces (L side, R side, top L, top R, bottom L, bottom R). I was concerned that the seam in the center of the top and bottom frame pieces would detract, but they’re not visible once assembly is complete via screw fasteners. Attaching the screen and stretching it is very simple via the clip system used by elite. Just follow the directions and work from the center of each frame side outwards as called out in the directions. Once complete, you’ll have a perfectly tight screen with no wrinkles despite the minor wrinkles I had when first removing the material. The other change I noticed was that the ‘Elite’ badge used to be centered on the bottom frame, but is now moved to the bottom right corner. I prefer this location since it is a polished badge that can reflect and be distracting. I don’t notice it in the new location. Everything was well packed and the only minor issue for my screen was that it was missing a hanging bracket. But for my application, it didn’t matter – for yours it may. I haven’t contacted Elite for a replacement bracket, but may in the future. This was my 1st purchase from Buy.com, and I’ve got nothing but good things to day. My order was processed and shipped quickly and status was provided throughout the transaction. Overall, the purchase was everything I look for – outstanding price (I couldn’t locate it cheaper anywhere else, great service and a great product). I highly recommend this screen as it’s half the price of many others out there and for me, it’s not lacking!! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!!
