I am thinking that I may skip the Dragonfly and go with another screen-just looking for a fair price from installer.
If anyone from Snap is monitoring, I would appreciate some info, otherwise I will look elsewhere.
I can't tell if it is out of line or not, but I would recommend you look at Seymour Screen AV. I have been looking at a few different screens and was recommended a Dragonfly by one store and a Da-Lite by another. The screens looked good and the two B&M stores were pretty much offering the same price for each. I decided to do some researching on my own. Found out their was a screen manufacturer in my home town right here in Iowa SeymourAv.com
I called Chris (he is the owner and posts on avsforums under the name chriscmore) and he had me come take a tour of their factory (small operation). Answered a ton of questions (I am a screen Newb) and gave me some samples to take with me. I am looking at their Glacier White 1.3 non acoustically transparent screen in a 16:9 format (they make 2.35 scope screens also and can do custom). Customer service, great reviews, American made (and local to boot), and the samples have sold me. Their 100" diagnol 16:9 fixed screens run either $859 or $1220 shipped depending on which frame you want. They use a grommet system to fasten their screen to the frame. Anyways I would call him or pm him here and at least see what he has to offer.
