I'll be relatively brief tonight. (more tomorrow I'm sure)
Got the screen delivered late tonight. Got it installed all by myself.
First impression - Wow, this thing is HEAVY and the build quality is EXCELLENT. Had I not wanted a 119" screen, I'd think the model B would be perfect. As it is, I wanted 119, so I got a Model C.
Very difficult for one person to install just due to size/weight. But I managed. I need to fix my install later (raise up a bit, get my level out) but I'll do that when I have some help.
Fired up the projector.
My DVD player isn't the best indicator, or the movie I used wasn't the best, but it was still GREAT. Decent improvement over my graywolf.
Firing up my HD (American Idol) and my PC (typing on it now) showed a HUGE improvement.
With DVD, I almost preferred dynamic. (panasonic ax100). With my PC, I need sunglasses with cinema 2.
What I really love about it (especially compared to my graywolf II) is the fact that the screen does totally disappear. No texture. No waves. No 'screen interference' at all.
I also love the fact that this thing is available with a black case (which I got). Once I paint my back wall black (this weekend hopefully) everything should disappear into the background save the beautiful picture.
I've sat in pretty much every seat in my theater. Pic is great no matter where I sit.
Brightness is VERY uniform. Don't get me wrong. I'm not giving up my front row center seat, but my family and guests will still be happy with whatever seats they get.
I'm extremely grateful I found this thread. My theater is now almost complete with the exception of some final paint.
OK, I lied. I wasn't all that brief. Great screen. Definitely gave me that last bit of 'pop'!
