I bought the 133" recessed, tab-tensioned white screen back in June. I was so excited to get it and then it came in a 12.5" box that was over 200 lbs. My brothers and I lugged it upstairs to my media room. And I got lazy and left it there since. lol
Five months later this past weekend I finally got around to mounting it. Had to cut through my ceiling sheetrock, etc. It was a lot bigger than I expected. The stats on the manual and website are either incorrect or I measured 10 times incorrectly. They say measure twice and cut once. I measured 10 times and still didn't cut wide enough. Once I got around to mounting it was still too wide. My room is 18'x12' and the top has some wood crown molding. The screen was so wide I actually had to cut an inch off my crown molding. So overall I would say it's about 11' 8" wide.
And with the screen so big I have to put my projector way, way back for it to project big enough to fill the screen. I'm still in the process of mounting my project (JVC RS40) but I did get a chance to watch Despicable Me last night. It looks great.
The box was missing the remote, the IR receiver, and a trigger cable. I called Monoprice and they issued an RMA... for the entire box. I told them it doesn't make sense to send a 12.5", 200lb box when all I need is 3 items but they told me to just take what I need and send it back. What?! lol I'm trying to contact their RMA department to resolve it.
