100"-120" Manual Pull Down Screen Recommendations <$750.

My casual HT room requires a retractable screen. I seek recommendations for 100" to 125" manual/pull down screens under $750. It would be hung from a ceiling 8 feet high. Designs that minimize wrinkling issues are preferred.

I am not a perfectionist, bang-for-the-buck is the key phrase here.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

All manual screens will eventually develop waves. You need a tensioned screen if you don't want waves. For manual screens the basic matte white screen material is tougher to notice the waves than other materials. Also, a screen with a larger roller won't develop waves as easily. You can probably find some of the Elite electric screens that are tensioned in your price range.

I'm in the same boat. Looking at Elite model B 100" 16:9. Priced around $200

Just to update.

I ended up purchasing a Elite 120" SRM.

Happy so far.

I currently have a projecta 106" that I have had for going on 2 years. Works fine for me and only $150. So cheap you almost can't go wrong.
