That email answers my concerns. The only thing that I would be a little concerned about is selling a 16x9 curved screen. The purpose of the curvature is to counter pincushion caused by the use of a anamorphic lens (which is used to create a scope aspect ratio). That combination seems to be counter productive.
I was thinking to keep it simple (not to play with the RS40 zoom and focus) and go with their 16:9 curve screen. Is this a bad idea? I thought one of the reason is to keep the throw distance the same from the projector.
Most of us here think this sucks because they don't get any aspect ratio correct. You're better off with a DIY solution if you're cheaping out on a screen.
I had high limitations so their are making me a custom 135.3" diagonal Theater IMAX Pro-Curve Screens 2.35:1 ratio.
Service was superb.
I haven't received my JVC RS40 projector either so this will take a while until I can post my opinion.
Got the screen last week. All crated up nicely protected. Setup was simple and easy. Screen material is bulletproof. With the baby due in May this, and the price, was the two major factor in my decision.
I don't have my JVC RS40 yet so I can't talk about performance.
They are selling on eBay and the Pics they are using is not what you will be getting. They will respond to all your Questions, but I should of asked how it really looks when you get it.. If you want to see what your buying I will send you pics!!
What size did you buy? Are the measurements correct at least?
If so how are you liking it?
I am curious about them due to the fact they are relatively inexpensive and more so they apparently have adjustable curvature and do not require an anamorphic lens;
From the ebay ad:
Allows for Tighter Curves such as 30' for use with Anamorphic Lens
Allows for More Relaxed Curves - Even Flat to wall if needed or desired.
I want a 2.35 model and I am thinking this would be a good screen to test out a curved screen but if it did cause noticeable barrel distortion on 16:9 images or I did not like the curve I could just make it flat.
Did you purchase the screen from Magnum?
I am about to order one of their new screens.
They have been on EBay for awhile and overall have a good rating. And no recent comments about their product.
I am about to order a magnum screen. How do you like yours now that you have had it for awhile?
Did you have to install additional bracing on/in the wall to hang? Was it difficult to hang?
