Many people are happy with the Draper M2500, others like myself find it has problems. I wanted to post a note for those that aren't so happy to let you know that it may be cheaper than you think to get new fabric. I have a 60x80 4x3 Cineperm (fixed mount) screen. It's a stock size I bought from AVS for $460. I was expecting that to replace it I'd have to pay another $460 but I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I can just replace the fabric with M1300 material for $250. Either Draper discounts fabric replacements or they charge way too much for that frame in the first place. Either way, just swapping fabric is a reasonably cost effective option.

To give you some more perspective on prices, a Stewart screen of the same size costs over $1000!

Actually, if you shop around you can get fabric only for under 5.00/sf.
