I'm aiming to get a 16:9 100" electric/motorized screen for around $250. As far as I can tell, the best options in this price range are the Elite Spectrum and Focupix Flexio series. Is that correct, or is there something better available?
The low-end in the Focupix TensionFlat line (cheapest tab tensioned screens I've found so far) are still a long way over my budget, but I can probably stretch that far if it's definitely going to be worthwhile.
So, there are basically two questions here:
(1) Is it worth getting a tab tensioned screen, despite the extra cost?
(2) If it is worthwhile, is there anything cheaper than the TensionFlat range? Even if it's a manual pull-down screen, that would be acceptable. Unfortunately a fixed screen won't work for me because I need easy access to the wall behind it.
