Would love to hear feedback from anyone using an Epson 5040ub with acousticpro1080P3 screen as that is my planned combo.

I really like the CinemaGrey material. It is a trade off but worthwhile I think for a multi-purpose room. I had a previous theater room that was light controlled with a white screen but found watching in a dark room extreme and fatiguing for things like sports and casual viewing/ conversation. My current room is open plan, half playroom for the kids, and has a large glass sliding door plus transom above in the back.

The cinema grey material allows me to use vertical blinds semi-open (light angled away from the screen) on the glass slider/transom and, similar to your setup, recessed lights in the play area, rope lighting above (hidden behind crown), and wall sconces, for a well lit room with a very usable screen. It is more "big TV" versus "movie theater". I tend to run my Panasonic 8000 full brightness with a lot of ambient light but on eco mode at night.

As far as the Aeon, see my other thread for early feedback on my 135" Aeon. I wanted this frame for edge free use, and would love it if not for issues on the corners. If you plan to use the (somewhat cheap looking) tape you may be able to cover the corners. I want to keep the Aeon but may return it due to the corners. (Per Elite, one of their more traditional frames will not have the corner issues.)

Just finished setting up my new VMAX2 Elite screen. Looks great! Using with an Optoma GT1080 short throw. Projector is about 4 feet from the 120" screen. This is in my living room and pups down in front of my 50" Samsung Plasma. Mostly for night time viewing since I have no light control for daytime.

I think I have decided to go fixed frame for my needs, but just curious at how much you like the new screen compared to the old one. Notice any issues with it?

Only issue is the slight waves that it has along the bottom and that I can't get the trigger function to work. I used the trigger cat5 they provide and have tried to splice a mono cable to plug into the projector. I ran this wire along with the others when we did that on Saturday. Problem is they the trigger the screen came with has an orange and green wire while the mono audio cord has red, white, and black internal wires. I've tried red to orange and green to black then white and nothing works. Not a super big deal though since I programmed my harmony remote to drop the screen when starting the activity and raise it when turning everything off. Anyways if I was you I would get a fixed screen if you can.

I am about to purchase a 120" elite screens spectrum2 with the maxwhitefg 1.1gain screen. I plan to purchase a benq ht2050 as well, this will be my first setupand will be going in a multipurpose room. So i will be using the electric screen to come down aprox 2 feet from my wall directly in front of my tv. this will be in a very small room, 12x15. Vewing distance will be aprox 12 feet from the screen, and the projector will be mounted between 12-13 feet from screen. based on the dimensions of the screen and my wall height 7'2". the viewing area of the screen will start at 15.5 inches. My delima comes from a Fan mounted in the direct path of the projector output. I will have to mount the projector no lower than 12 inches from the ceiling to clear the fan. The screen will be mounted directly in front of a 36" wide window. Will the screen be effected by the window? I plan to use this for after dusk viewing. I have done research on everything i can think of for the past week, but i just want to make sure i have everything covered.

I've searched online, and tried to search this thread (kinda hard to do with it generalized). I'm trying to find reviews and comparisons of the Cinewhite material.

My room setup will be a dark, light controlled theater room. For most critical movie viewing, it'll be lights out. With a family, and with fights, sports, etc, there will be some ambient light. I plan to be able to keep that at a minimum, when needed (phillips hue lighting). I plan to buy an Aeon 120" soon, and just want to make sure I'm making the right decision for the $.

Thanks!

Put up my 110" AT Saker tab tension screen just as a test a few weeks ago. Since this photo, the room has basically been done. Hope to get to hanging to PJ and screen for real tomorrow.

Look also at what type material you're going to need. There are different combos available with different frames/material/size, etc...One might have what you need and the others not.

White screen 1.0-1.2 gain will work for me.

Tell me what you guys think here. From another thread...

I've been wondering about screen material types, and trying to figure what I should go with. I too am very interested in what seems to be well reviewed and high value materials from Elite Screens.

My room will be matte blacked out ceiling and walls, with dark carpet and black furniture. However, I'll have family (wife, 4 small children) and friends up for a good bit of games, fights, video gaming, etc.

I figured a white screen, and when I do have on some lighting, it can be the independently controlled, dimmable, rear recessed lighting (well away from the screen). My most critical viewing will be of batcaved movie nights, but with the other, should I consider the gray screens?

So I only see one allen screw hole on the left side of my screen, and I see yellow in there. Is this the vertical limit adjust?
