I was wondering if anyone has an Elitech screen or have seen them?

http://www.elitechusa.com/

It's difficult to find reviews, searches come back for 'Elite' screens.

I was looking at this one;

http://www.elitechusa.com/projector-screen-elitech-fixed-frame-120-16-9-g.html

And;

http://www.elitechusa.com/projector-screen-elitech-electric-120-16-9.html

Both screens available on amazon for cheaper $.


I'm a bit worried my cat will ruin the fixed frame screen. Putting window shades should work but it's an added expense. Are fixed frame screens better than pull down screens?


Edit: I forgot to add this, the only reviews I found.

Anyone considering buying from Elitech on Amazon, keep this in mind. I bought one of their HC gray fixed screens for a particular projector, but before I opened the screen box, I tried the projector, and realized it wasn't for me. I had no problems returning the projector, since Amazon was the seller. When I tried to return the screen though, even after telling them it was unopened, I was informed that not only would I have to pay return shipping, I would have to pay a "15 to 25%" restocking fee, to be determined by AV Products ( I think this is actually Elitech's Amazon store entity). So keep in mind that it's basically non-returnable, unless you want to pay a lot more for your $300 screen.

I'm going to end up doing a full thread with pics, but wow, the HC gray material in that screen is junk. It turns the image to mud, dimming the colors and the whites, which is not what an HC material is supposed to do. To make matters worse, it has vertical thick-thin waves in it from the production process that show up as vertical banding in skies and light scenes. I would say absolutely stick with Elite, not Elitech.
