Has anyone heard of EluneVision screens? They are an Asian brand. Are they any good?

It appears as though the fixed frame model will be available in white and high contrast grey, both at 1.4 gain, while the manual and electric are being offered only in the white.

I have been eyeing these screens since they first appeared online; the price is no doubt very attractive.

I am currently in the process of completeing my basement HT project and I will probably install an Epson ProCinema 800 to match with one of these screens. If there is anyone with any more info. on these screens, please pass it along.

I received my Elunevision screen from Eastporters and it seems great to me. It is the electric 120" version. It goes up and down very smoothly and quietly. The screen sits flat although I have only had it installed for 4 days. There are no variations in screen contrast or hot spots that are visable. I was very pleased with the final product given the low price paid. Installation was also very simple. I also bought the Epson TW600 from Eastporters.

I am also processing my signal through a DVDO Iscan HD. The whole set up is perfect as far as I can tell.

How about a few screenshots. We are also all anxious on some more feedback as far as any noticeable dropoff. Does it have a wide cone?

Just got my 106" manual screen in the mail today. I've been using a DIY screen (black out fabric) for a few days and that seemed pretty nice with my Panny AE900U. I'll post my impressions of the Elunevision screen later this week when I get it setup.

Sorry I can not post any screen shots as I am not into the digital camera mode yet. (no Camera)

From what I can see the screen has avery wide display without any noticable drop off. It does not matter if I sit directly infront of the screen or lay down on the couch which is way off to the side the picture is great.

I am presently trying to find the propper setup for the video scaling as the standard 720p from the DvDO HD does not show the full picture. I have been serching most of the day for a video scaling program that can determine the right front porch, back porch and any other porch that might be relivant. If anyone can direct me in the right direction please do so

Hi Guys,

I just picked up my 92 electric screen and Hitachi projector yesterday. As this is my first projector I can't compare it to anything. However I can tell you guys that it produces a very bright beautiful picture. I see Zero grains or anything distracting. the remote and on wall controller are cool. As long as it lasts a while I'm very happy with my purchase. I say go for it a that price.

If you guy have any direct questions about it, just ask and I'll take a look.

Brian

Brian,

Congrats on taking the plunge. I assume that when you say Hitachi projector you are talking about the TX200. I was also looking at this combo (but with a fixed frame model) and think it should pair well.

Did you go for the grey or white? Do you have any idea if it is a direct-reflective material or angular-reflective? In other words, do you notice a substantial drop off when viewing at an angle?

Any feedback would be helpful. THanks.

Sorry for the delay, busy with the install. Ya I was talking about the tx200. I went with the white, and there is almost no drop off. I can stand almost right beside the screen and it is still bright. I tried the stand up sit down thing and there is no difference.

Let me know if you have any other questions

Thanks for the info Brian. Could you describe the frame? Is it painted black, or velvet/cloth wrapped?

PAINTED BLACK

Screen size on the 120" was measured at 104" to outside edge of black borders across instead of 104" inside of border so the size is not a true 16:9 so I found that if I adjusted to the full width of the screen I had overlap to the top and bottom of the screen which needed to be covered with the border adjustment of the Iscan. But the quality of the picture for the price of the screen is great. You can not go wrong with this screen for the money

I decided to go and measure my screen after reading this, and it turns out it is about 87" diagonal instead of 92". I'm still happy with my screen but 5" seems quite a bit to be off. What is your actual diagonal size?

Hi, this is Dave here, we should have cleared this up before, the screen size includes the border 1.5" which is just how it came from the manufacturer and the aspect ratio is 1.85 WideScreen format which we have listed on our site. This is true of the Electrical and Manual Screens. With 1.85 you get full screen at 1.85 movies, for 1.77 content you get some no filled areas at the sides and 2.35 you bigger film area then 1.77 screen. The Fixed Frame Screens are exactly 16:9 or 1.77 and the sizes we quote for them are actually viewable sizes. Sorry about the confusion, we didn't know about this issue until a customer brought it up just a few days ago. Sometimes we are just not always on top of things with running a buiness and going to school at the same time.

Good to know.. I want a Fixed frame so I should be fine, but now which one should I get, the Grey or the White ? My room is completely dark (no windows) just 4 walls and thats it. I have total control on light with a dimmer.

Right now i'm using a blackout cloth white and picture is fine but I have some wave because the blackout cloth is old. My projector is the Sanyo PLV-Z4 and I light bright image so thats why i'm worry about the grey screen... i'm worry for the red,blue all those color ?
I know it's better for black but I want your advice guys

Thank again.

I'd go for White, if you want gain, and grey if you want better colours and better blacks. I use a 134" gray in my basement with AE900, the colours are very nice. It is all up to your own preference, if you are a brightness, gain type of guy, go for white, if you like better colours go for gray. Also white is better if you are in a more well lit room as you want more gain so your colours don't wash out.

I pulled the trigger on 120' electric screen and will arrive today. I'm very curious about the quality because It's very cheap screen. Will post some pictures because I know everybody wants to see it and nobody posted anything yet.

Regards

i'm interested in the electric screens. any further feedback out there?
what is the gain of the white screen?.
do they have any "waves"?
are they available in tensioned models?
the Eastporters site doesn't offer pricing info. how much is the 16:9,120"diag, white electric?
do they ship to the states, or is there a us distibuter?
thanks,
e.

You can order screen to the US by using our order now section and on top it says if you are US resident click here. Just click that and you are ready to go.

okay Dave, I've got a real good one for you. I'm a US citizen living in the UK. Can you tell me what my options are? I've looked at your website and your prices are the best I've seen in a long while....in dollars that is. Also, between white and grey which would you recommend with a Sim 2 300e in a light controlled room?
Thanks

If they are both 1.4 gain why would you choose white if you want more gain? Is the grey screen truly 1.4 gain or is it somewhat less? I woud be interested in comparisons to the Optoma Graywolf screen.
