I might be moving my PJ into my bedroom so I will be needing an electric
Don't want to pay for an expensive screen becasue it won't be getting much use and the one in my living room is staying right where it is for my future 3D PJ down the road. Besides it's too big for the bedroom.
I found this Antra screen which is very cheap and wondering if anyone has ever dealt with or own an Antra Screen.
They are OEM Direct.
73" 73738 Mits DLP
Panasonic AE4000 Projector
If so, why not just go for one of the inexpensive manual pull downs made by a company that people have been dealing with for years like Dalite, Elite.. etc That way you won't be all upset after you install the screen, run power and find out it is just another hunk of Chinese junk...
That would be my thinking if it were me..
Planar PD8150 with DC4 DMD paired with a Dalite HP 2.8 110"
Contact your AV Science sales guy for a quot on a manual pull down from Da Lite, you'll be surprised that you don't need to up the budget too much to get yourself into a quality screen.
not sure why people don't like these when everyone seems to like the favi electrics. I came across this one as I believe I can squeeze in a 135 inch screen instead of 120. so my choice is manual elite screen or this for about 100 dollars more. an electric screen would definately be nice.
of course its relatively easy to claim something is shipping damage but I could most likely fix any problem if they send some parts as long as the screen isn't damaged and the borders are printed on it correctly. I read a review of a favi screen where the black border was printed incorrectly, thats something I can't really fix.
no problems whatsoever, they are a very good screen and I use it for 3D movies,
dont over pay for something that Antra probably buys and sells cheaper than the competition
but the big issue i'm having is the random screen up and downs that have been happening that i posted about in another thread.
hmm, I have a pulldown with waves I was going to replace, and I thought electric's didn't develop waves, since there's no 'pulling' from the bottom.
Anyone else get waves on their electric screens?
its still thin material, you can't really notice it, i notice it when the computer desktop is on the screen, during movies you can't really notice it and in 3d you can't notice it at all.
I just purchased the Antra Electric Motorized 119" 16:9 Projector Projection Screen Matte White, so far I love it! Came tighlty packaged, sealed in wrap and boxed up tight, no problems with the shipping, installation was simple, I had it hung up (ceiling mount with 8" metal hook anchors) in less than 20 minutes. Remote works fine, has a box switch as well which is somewhat annoying to hide, I just tucked it back behind the screen so it's not noticable (remote still works with the box out of view) and mine came with no ripples waves or anything, nice black border, motor is quiet however I plan on leaving mine down probably most the time. And as for some saying the screens have this smell, this one well to me just smelled brand new, nothing that bothered me. For what I paid ($175) this screen is perfect for my basement home theatre.
And my favourite part? The screen is so freaking flat, when putting together which is very easy the only trouble I had was pulling the material on the last frame over the tensioners. I though oh man this may rip but no way. This material is so strong it's insane. I honestly would expect this to compare to the higher end screens for sure. I'm very happy.
Also, when you hang this you can easily just slide the screen left to right as the hangers are in a channel on back on frame and slide back and forth. Pretty convenient for aligning.
I have a pretty extensive setup and I'm happy. I would not hesitate for a second on this fixed tab tensioned screen.
I have the 120 inch 16:9.
