Backyard Screen Advice - should I buy?

I see these 12 foot blowup screens anyone use before? 160 bucks good reviews but I also see hard screens you can put up too outside ....

Anyone?

Avoid the blow up models and get a regular screen. The picture quality is so much better and the inflatables stink even with a light breeze. Camp Chef makes some that are reasonably priced on Amazon. Their only disadvantage is they will take a little longer to set up. Once you are used to it you will do it in 10 minutes.

I would stay away from the cheap blowup screens. They are not very stable in even a light breeze and the screens tend to have wrinkles. A good blowup screen is expensive and are still sometimes noisy.

If you want a 12' screen I would suggest this one:

If you're willing to do a little work yourself I would go with one of Carl's PROJECTION SCREEN KITS:

The Camp Chief screens would be a third choice for me. They're ok but they are designed to work as both a front and rear projection screen and as such, they are a comprimise regarding image quality.
