The Sable frame is Elite's low end offering. Other than being difficult to assemble, anyone have an opinion on the quality?

Their AcousticPro 1080p2 screen material has some very favorable reviews. I've seen some negative reviews claiming the weave is loose enough to observe from 10ft away or that moire is still an issue, but I think these reviews are for the older AcouticPro 1080 material, not the new 1080p2. Anyone have direct experience with the 1080p2? I'll be sitting 9-10 feet away.

This screen is meant to match my Mitsubishi HC7900DW, so I'm looking in the sub $1000 category for screens. If the Elite isn't the best choice, anyone have a suggestion meeting these criteria?

- 2.35:1
- AT
- Fixed or tensioned (It doesn't have to be motorized.)
- Gain around 1
- under $1000 (I can get the Elite for $400.)

It is far from difficult to assemble. I had a helping hand just because I thought I would need it and took maybe 30 mins. There was no struggle to stretch as others mentioned. Just read and follow the instructions and do it the way they say to do it and it works quite well.

I have not see any other screens in person, but I would venture to guess you get what you pay for.
