I'm looking at getting a Dragonfly 120" HC fixed frame NIB for $500. Is this as good of a deal as it sounds? I know I was quoted 999 for 106 matte white at the store. I will be running a SONY VPL-HW40ES as the projector in a basement with very little ambient lighting from 4 daylight windows. With this set up work well? Just entering into the projector world.

I can't comment on the projector setup with your lighting but as far as the price for the screen, Yes, that's a very good deal.

Any concerns about it being the high contrast grey? I really don't have a lot of ambient light to block out, so that isn't an issue. I have heard from a friend who has a Panoview GreyWolf II that he thought the grey high contrast screen cause more graininess then a matte white. Wondering if this is common with the grey high contrast screens or perhaps just isolated to the Panoview brand or at least more prominent than in Dragonfly screens.

Just came across a 110" high contrast screen as part of a 'got it with the house' projector deal. Part number is DF-SL-110-HC. It's in great condition, but I have an acoustically transparent screen setup now in my HT. I have a Draper AT1200 now, and it seems that the Dragonfly is a little larger and a little more substantial, so....

I'd like to explore replacing the screen material with their Acousticweave II fabric...looks like it would be easy to do.

SnapAV's website says they only sell via dealers, but this is certainly a "PITA" inquiry. I've reached out to the manufacturer via email for help, but thought there might be a dealer still subscribed to this thread that could help.

I guess my other option is to sell it and make someone else a really good deal on a 110" with HC material.

I'm finding that I'm smarter than I thought, but dumber than I need to be.

IMHO, sell the Dragonfly. I would not replace a Mercedes with a Kia (No offense to Kia owners), you currently own what I would consider a "Luxury" screen and I would not replace it with a "Made in China for a price point" screen. Not that it's a bad screen, just not at the level of what you currently own.

Thanks for the reply. I did receive a response from SnapAV...which is something. It was the expected...."we only sell through dealers.....we don't sell the screen fabric separately"...response.

I do understand that this kind of request is kind of a pain, but making a customer happy is never a bad idea. How much effort would it take to figure out a price and maybe sell something and make a customer happy? Instead, I've written SnapAV and their screens off of my list forever.

Anyone want a great deal on a Dragonfly 110" high contrast screen?
