Not sure what it is. Some kind of stretching? But only seen from certain angles?
I haven't had a chance to update my post but like you had odd white lines, more like residue than something wrong with the screen itself. Could be seen in very bright scenes as you describe. Like J3553, I contacted Elite Screens and was really impressed with their follow through. They sent me new screen material which didnt have those defects and I'm very much enjoying my 120" screen now.
A couple notes though.
1. Its in fine print but they are going to want you to pay for return shipping on your screen, its part of their warranty agreement. Just an FYI, I was a little bothered by it but its not a huge deal. Much better then having to build a new frame, thats for sure.
2. The second screen is almost perfect, it did come with 2 very small red dots, think tip of a pencil small. Completley invisible unless your about 20 inches from right side of the screen, the projector is off, and all lights are turned on. I think I can live with such a small defect.
3. To answer another poster's comments about reading through the 42 pages of this thread and seeing issues. I just want to say that yeah, like Mustang, HT Depot, and other entry level screen makers, there are some quality control issues. However, the warranty is solid and more than just 1 year.
If your worried, your more than welcome to go buy a da-light or diamond screen but thats many times the cost of the Elite. Those brands are excellent by the way but gear more for high end or the poor soul with white marble floor tiling in the basement.
