well the GrayHawk finally arrived, when I got home around 6pm to my amazement the box had a huge gash about 3.5 long going down the corner of the box and it was fully open, I was afraid to open it since my wife already accepted it, she stated on the shipping order that the box was damaged. well I looked inside and the gash was where the ve-lux frame was located and I didn't see any damage the screen tube looked ok. so this meant I had to check out the screen and frame for damage right now there was no damage but the box is unusable. so I put the frame together and unrolled the screen as they instructed and guess what at the very end is a wrinkle that does not look like it will come out who every rolled it up must have folded this over, even when I stretch it by hand the wrinkle does not come out. looks like a call to Stewart. I will post my finding of how the picture looks compared to my home made black out screen. I have a JVC/Dila G11U and it is uncalibrated and I have no scaler, that's another story.

Well I didn't even have to call Stewart, Mr. Don Stewart himself called me last night and said he was shipping me a new screen, because this type of wrinkle will not come out it will always show light and dark when there is a projected light on the screen, he said he would ship the new screen FEDX and I should receive it tomorrow, I have never heard of such great service this is one Class Act Company. thanks again DON. and AVScience for turning me on the Stewart Film Screen Co.

Wow. That is great to hear. Maybee I should unpack my box to make sure everything is alright. The theater isn't finished though so I don't know where I could keep it.

Oh well.

they had a statement in my box to be sure to check your screen out within 24hrs of delivery to make sure everything was ok. I am sure this is to protect you from items such as what happen to me. I was impressed.
