Well here is Elite story so that you may weight this before making a purchase.
I started out looked for a motorized screen for my Epson 8100. Elite made the most economical sense. First I looked at the VMax2 but saw all the problems people had with waves, wrinkles, ect. So I ordered at the home2 series, which advertises a fiberglass backing to keep it flat. It was anything but flat. In an earlier post in this thread are attached pictures of that mess.
So I returned it for a cinetension, having gone up to $750 and over my original planned budget by almost $500. But I figured if it's flat, it will be worth it down the road.
My cinetension arrived and It looked pretty good, very flat with only a small wrinkle in the bottom right that would even out after about 5 minutes. All seemed well until I tried to center an image on it. I tried everything but I just could not get it to fill the screen without over-spill. I decided to measure the screen and found the dimensions to be incorrect. 48.5" high on one side closer to 49 on the other and the width was 87.5". There was also a slight skew due to a 1/8" error in the masking across the top. (A 100" diagonal screen is 49" by 87")
So I contacted the reseller who not only agreed to exchange it without charging me for the immediate shipping of a new screen before the old one was returned....But they even went so far as to conference Elite into out conversation. Elite was going to pull out some screens from the warehouse, measure and check them to assure it was right, and then ship it to me.
Well I got the "checked" screen and it was even worse. Now the dimensions were correct, but there were horizontal stripes running across the screen. They were about 3" thick each and spaced evenly at about every 5 inches, 5 total. They were actually indentations pressed into the material. It looks like impressions from the roller stretching the material too tightly. That would explain why the stripes run the entire width and are so evenly spaced and the same exact thickness each.
How in the world they didn't see this is beyond me. I decided I will keep the original cinetension. At least it is flat. I can over shoot the image just a bit and live with that. I can't fault the reseller, they went the extra mile to make it right. I can only say that buying an elite motorized screen is risky. But it's a tough place to be because the price difference between there tensioned screens and models from Draper and Da-lite are huge. Those cost more than my PJ. While Elite may be an economical solution, $750 is NOT cheap, nor is it an excuse for such poor quality control....especially since they were supposed to have double checked this one.
Just info for those considering Elite
