I'm still thrilled with mine. It was worth the well over 2 week wait for me. Expect more than 2 weeks and many follow up calls

I've had mine up for a year and a half now and it's holding up just fine. I've taken it down once or twice and haven't had issues. I found getting the tension right on the screen to be easy and I've seen no change it.

For anyone interested in ordering from James I just recommend to order early and follow-up on a regular basis. You'll get it eventually, and if it happens to come before you are prepared to install it the box really isn't that big so you can tuck it away somewhere and assemble it when it's convenient.

Looks like I have had the same experience that many others have had with Jamestown screens. Quoted me at about 2 weeks to ship it out and I want to say it took closer to a month to get shipped.

Was alright with me since I was still working on my theater and the quality seems decent, but be prepared to wait it out a bit.

Got mine shipped today. Expecting this Thursday.


[UPDATE] I was able to setup the frame this weekend and I can say that the quality off the screen is amazing. It was not hard to put together. I did alone and it took me 45 minutes. Only time i needed help is to hang it on the wall.

I'm on year 8 with my screen and it still looks flawless. I can't comment on the quality control these days, but I've not made a better electronics related value purchase than this screen. It does sound like the wait times are an issue now, which is unfortunate. Hopefully he is able to scale up his business to meet the demand.

I have an old 16:9 Jamestown screen from 6 years ago. I'm looking to switch to a 2.35 screen and I see on his website that they now offer masking, but no pictures on the site. Anyone here use a masking system from Jamestown? How does it work?

I think, but I'm not certain, that his are just planks that just kind of snap in and cover up the top and bottom.

My only concern is if I'm going to big but I've been watching it for a few days now and love it but I hope its alright as the bulb dims any opinons are appreciated.
Don't just think about doing it (Going to a 130), save up and make it happen. I have a 150" in an average sized room and it is fantastic. I have read comments from people with math formulas and such. Phooey! Go big or go home! I used to think the 100" was "enough" but since putting in the 150 I would never consider going back, especially with 3D movies. It makes you feel just like you are in the movie with the action. And for Sports, well, you can hear the cheers from the street.

Jamestown screens are supposed to be 1.2 gain. Does anyone know if they really are 1.2? Has the screen material been measured by anyone? Some screen companies, like Carada and their brilliant white material, claim certain gain numbers, but when measured, fall short of the claim.

For the Jamestown screens, will we be able to minor adjust the horizontal screen position once it is mounted? I ordered an Benq HT2050 that does not have horizontal lens shift, so it will be pretty important to have the flexibility to do some micro-adjustment of the horizontal screen location. Thanks!

Sure. He supplies a french cleat with it for hanging, which allows side-to-side movement. Of course you can hang it any way you want.
