Since I couldn't pass up this price for a new tensioned elitescreen, I went ahead and ordered it from TigerDirect. It came to a bit over $700 with overnight air shipping.
Overall first impressions:
1. Screen build is high quality... it is heavy and solid, has excellent materials in the casing, wires, etc.
2. The motor is slow... VERY slow... this is my first electric operated screen, coming from a fixed model, and it takes a while to get it to come down.
3. Brackets and mounts are very good and provide plenty of different options, from wall mounting, to ceiling mounting, to mounting inside a box. It included lots of different screws and lag nuts.
4. Documentation is poor at best... mounting is the only thing it explains... I cannot figure out how to get the screen to stay at a fixed position, since its drop is so low.
5. Drop... it includes a drop of like 24" (I think, I am not near the screen as I write this) but it would be quite handy with a 10' or 11' ceiling. For my 8' Standard celing, the screen goes down a bit too far, which goes back to my problem in #4
on how to adjust... right now we use the included remotes to stop the progress on its way down.
6. No wrinkles! This is big since I was deathly afraid of wrinkles to the point that I went looking only for tab-tensioned options. The tab tensioning is super cool and gives a great taught looking screen.
Any other questions ask away, I will work on uploading some pics that I have thus far with it paired with my JVC-X55r.
