Well, I finally had time to put together the 110", 2.35:1 fixed screen I picked up from Monoprice almost a month ago. All The parts were very well packaged, and of course I avoided both the outrageous UPS shipping cost and any potential damage by picking it up myself in Rancho Cucamonga. One of the first things I did was check that I had all the parts. Oops! I was missing the "L" brackets and half the screws that were used to attach them to the corners of the frame
The manual said they should be in the box labeled "hardware parts". Not there. Got hold of Monoprice and they opened a RMA for the missing parts. I decided to un-package the rest and at least set everything on the floor so I would be ready to go when the missing parts arrived. Hey! What's that? The missing "L" brackets were already attached to one end of each of the 4 frame sections
Got hold of Monoprice and had them cancel the RMA.
After that things went fairly well. I can't give a time frame for the assembly since I kept stopping to do other things, then came back to it. One person can assemble it with no problem, and the only time I had my GF help me was to lift it onto the upper wall bracket. I cannot compare it to other screens, since this is my first projection system, but it seems very well made. There were a few "squiggles" on the screen in the upper left had corner after I assembled it. The manual, and other posters, said this is not unusual, and those imperfections should disappear in a few days, and I already see what I would guess to be a 50% improvement in that area in only 24 hours.
I have not installed the lower mounting bracket. Other posters have also stated they use the screen without it, and as far as supporting the screen, the upper mounting bracket is more than adequate. I just need to make sure the bottom of the screen is the same distance from the wall as the top. Without the lower bracket it seems to be closer to the wall than the top. If true it something simple to correct. All in all it looks very nice hanging on the wall an it is obviously well made. The black velvet border is really sharp.
Now all I have to do is get rid of all the cardboard that came with it and start working on getting my JVC RS40 mounted on the ceiling
