I recently received my 108" Monoprice electric and have it mounted above a 92"x48" bay window in my livingroom (I had no wall big enough and needed light control, soooo, two birds with one stone!)
When lowered during the day I can just see the sun that shines between the mini blind slats behind it, but very faint. Probably add some fabric or light control blinds later.
As for the drop, it's about 2" and the adjustability is hardly worth mentioning since at 3" I could just see the roller core starting to become exposed, and thats no good for it, so 2 1/2 " or less.
I should have ordered the remote and probably will, unless I can find a way to wire in a 12v trigger from my Sharp XV-Z3000U projector.
Picture looks great, btw.
