Quick question, I have a chance to buy an elite er100wh1, brand new for $75. I know its an older version. Is this a good deal?

Ok, looks like it's not an er100wh1. It's a silverframe 100gh1.

I'm doing research about screens. So far, Elite Screens looks like a good option. I'm leaning towards the fixed frame Aeon series with an edge free screen. Sorry if this question has been asked but I haven't been able to read all the 2000+ posts yet. Is the CineWhite good for 4K projectors? Is the material nice and smooth to accommodate the small 4K pixels? Anyone with a true native 4K projector (Sony's, not the pixel-shift kind) and CineWhite screen able to comment?

I really would love a fixed screen but my room/setup (& wife) won't work......I'm pretty much left with an Elite portable pull up screen but I'm afraid of waves and especially edge curling. In a moment of drunken haze last night I thought why not get a bigger sized pull up screen than I plan to project the image...i.e.; get a 110 inch screen but project a 100" image to avoid any vertical edge curl distractions....of course the white unprojected areas would be slightly annoying but if really a concern I could lay black velvet strips to obscure.....anyone think this is anything but wishful thinking???

Not a bad idea, but there is something to be said for the satisfying look of an edge to edge picture. I agree that function over form is (how well it works is more important than how it looks) the right way to go.

Just to do a quick update, I ended up purchasing a Elite Screens Evanesce Tension B with Cinewhite Material in 120". I built an oak cornice for above my window to mount this recessed screen. So far so good, i have had it mounted and unrolled for a week and there are still some small abnormalities along the black border in the lower left side of the screen but nothing bad at all. It looks like it rolls over something on the roller? Adjusting the stop height on this screen is very easy but hard when you mount a recessed screen like this so close to the wall. The angle you need to insert the allen wrench is from the backside of the screen and was a pain in the butt to adjust the way I had it mounted. Never the less it is adjusted and it is perfect! Thank you all for your suggestions and help on coming to the decision of this screen and material. I hope to contribute to this thread with my experience to help out some others on their purchase.

I am considering purchasing an elite motorized tabbed screen, but have two questions for you guys...

1) I am planning to mount the screen on the wall above a wall mounted flatscreen, so I need to somehow offset the mounting of the screen to open in front of (and clear) the tv... The brackets they sell are 11" long, which are far too big. That will eat up too much of my throw distance (small room, need every inch I can get), and will look awful installed. I am thinking of potentially building a frame off the wall- maybe like 5" from the wall and then mount the screen to that. What are your thoughts?

2) I was looking at the grey material they have which is much improved for when the room isn't completely light controlled. Are there any downsides to this screen in terms of picture quality other than reduced viewing angle? I am thinking having the added flexibility to watch the projector without the lights totally off will be quite nice. However, I want to make sure the picture quality is not sacrificed at all, if comparing the two materials in the ideal light controlled condition...

TIA!
