Looking to move my 120 inch Vapex fixed frame screen. I used it for about 6 weeks. It's all boxed up and ready to go. Any Takers?

Just thought to update you all that after 3 screens that had problems (1st: bright spotting 2: torn at the weight bar upon arrival 3rd: uniformity issues - kind of like a slightly muddy roller had been rolled around on it ) I agreed with Visual Apex that I would return the parts and they reimbursed me fully.

I recently purchased an Epson 3020 refurbished projector package with the Visual Apex 135" screen. I am very pleased with the quality and have had no issues. I would definitely recommend them.

Just found this thread and haven't read through it all yet but since I'm going with a refurbished 5020 you are probably a great person to ask for your impressions. I'm going with 110" in a room without light control but I'm at the brighter end of the projectors abilities since I'm only throwing 12ft. Do you think the 1.1 CinemaWhite material will be sufficient for a non-dedicated HT?

Well, I decided to move forward with a VAPEX 106" tab-tensioned screen and an Epson 5030UB.

I hope the quality of the screen is decent because you sure can't beat the feature set for the money!

I will post more as soon as I get it.


Please post your experiences here!

Definitely! I am still thrilled with the brightness and quality of!the my 1.1. It is one of the best purchases I have ever made.

Are you in a light-controlled room? My space has a lot of windows and I'm concerned about the picture being washed out during the day. Although daytime viewing would be mostly sports so it isn't as critical as movies. I might not have a choice because I can't find any motorized tensioned options with higher gain or grey surfaces close to $1k.

I can control the light if I desired to. However, I do mainly nighttime viewing so it is not an issue.
I run mine in eco mode and turn down the brightness even with ambient light.

I picked up the Vapex bundle on a 120" fixed screen with the Benq W1070 projector plus all of the items they toss in with the bundle. Out the door for less than $1100. I assembled the screen this last weekend. Would have been easier with 2 people. The frame goes together easily but stretching the screen material and pushing the rod into its slot on the frame and then trying to keep it there while you press the holding tab in place made for some pretty sore fingers. Would be a lot easier with 2 people. One stretching and one putting the tabs in. That said, the screen has no ripples or waves. Very impressed so far but have not mounted the screen or put the projector on it. Only so much time in a weekend and these are not things I want to be doing at the end of a day.
