They don't have the wall bracket's for the screen. Looks like I need to order some from Carada or go to home depot.

I forget what they look like, but I am sure you can just use a French cleat. You have to mount the top and bottom. I mounted my acoustical panels with cleats from the Home Depot.

That's what I'm thinking on getting at home depot and putting Furring Strip Board. Then mount the French cleats to the board. What's the total weight of the screen.

Got the screen set up but not mounted yet. I notice that the back of the screen is white and not black like other screens. Does the light go straight through the screen.

Got the screen mounted and so far looks good. Got to watch some football and a movie tonight. The picture looks sharper and color's have more pop not bad at all for $200.

Which carada would you choose?

I'm looking at the different carada screens and while the pictures on their website are a bit lacking I think understand the general difference in look between the criterion and precision and am curious on some thoughts of my situation. I'm looking at the 110" screen and will be projecting a Sony HW40ES onto it. My front wall is 100" and then on both sides there is a 135 degree angle where the wall continues out. The precision width with frame is exactly 100, same as the wall so would fit perfectly. Unfortunately, looking at both I think I like the look of the criterion better, which is 102.5". So that would work, but I would have to mount the screen 1" off the wall to do so. Thoughts?

Thanks!
Steve
