I just purchased this one on Sunday and it was delivered on Wednesday. I'm just finishing up my room, so hopefully by Saturday I will get to show something on it to see how well it works.

I finally got mine today. Looks great very slim clean case and it says focupix on it. Has the dangle remote. I have the 0.9 grey high contrast and it is way better for my setup then matte white which I previously had. overall very satisfied and also mine has about 18 inches of drop counting black at top and case and brackets drop from ceiling. Actually fits my optoma hd70 perfectly at 95 inch diagonal.

Congrats! I take it you got the HDVio 100" 16:9 as it is called. Could you confirm the width of the view area is 83 inches. This is the exact view width I need not counting the black borders. Also, you do not see any hotspotting with this screen, right. This has got to be the best deal going. Many thanks!

Cheers.

Well, I will be callisng htdepot on monday. my screen has some waves in it and a crinkle. I cannot see the small crinkle in it unless light is on screen when not in use. I can see the wave though. I just got it today so I will give it some time-til monday hanging open to see if the wave goes away.

Sorry to hear that deez.

Just ordered a 110 inch HDVio today... I've got my fingers crossed that it will be wave free.

I'll post comments on it once it arrives and I set it up.
post #67 of 713
Thanks....I have also got to talk with them because the picture on thier site says that it has the keyfob remote but I got the 2 piece remote and box but I ordered the hdvio screen??

Anyway, I just want a screen that is wave free.
post #68 of 713
same as above poster, Im in the market for a 120" electric screen that wont have waves a month or two into using it.
post #69 of 713
I think the only way to be truly certain is to buy a tab-tensioned screen. I've heard good things about these (focupix) screens as well as about monoprice screens, but I don't think freedom from waves is certain with either screen--nor is it certain with Da-lite or other more expensive screens.
post #70 of 713
Well I just heard back from mike at htdepot and I think he is going to send me a new one in exchange. I am very happy with thier customer service so far. I will keep you posted. He also noffered some refunds but I would rather have a better screen. This .9 grey screen is really nice other than the crinkle and the 6 waves!!
post #71 of 713
Good to hear!

I'll just take the discount and then come up with some device to eliminate the waves by applying tension at the key points :P

How do you do this?
post #73 of 713
First you figure out what needs to be done to eliminate the waves (ie, V shaped waves might be eliminated by applying some upwards force to the middle of the bar and simulatneously pulling down on the ends. Then you find an engineer friend and figure out how to build something that will do this.

I don't have a screen yet, so it may not technically be possible (or easy, rather)
post #74 of 713
Htdepot has sent mine and I will be recieving replacement screen on the same day as The Big Lebowski comes out on HD DVD!!!

I will let you know how this goes......I will say their customer support is very good to this point always there and very friendly and helpful.
post #75 of 713
Cool, my screen should get here Monday- I'll post thoughts and comments once I have it set up, which may take a while- need a friend to help me mount it because I am incompetent with tools
post #76 of 713
For those of you that have mounted the screen...

It seems that the screen does not hang straight down when mounted with the included hardware. That is, the opening where the screen drops down from is at a 45 degree angle with a vertical line. Is this normal? Or is there something I'm missing...

Thanks
post #77 of 713
Mine is still great after more than 4 months.
I'm very happy with it and it pairs nicely with my Mits HD1000U.

I can't see any waves or all that junk, looks very good & works everytime I need it.

Oh, yes mine also does not feed directly down, but rather at an angle.
I haven't measured the angle so I can't say it's 45 degrees or 30 degrees or whatever.
post #78 of 713
Just an update:

They are sending me my 3rd screen as the other 2 were damaged in shipping. I give them 5 stars for their customer support and they only want my happiness as a customer. I would definitely use them again solely based on this fact. Will check back next week when new screen arrives.
post #79 of 713
Ok, thanks rbastedo, thats what I wanted to hear- though if anyone has a different experience let me know.

Glad to hear their customer support has been so... well, supportive.
post #80 of 713
Does anybody notice any hotspotting or grain with the gray material on the HDVio screen. My current matte white screen has these and I want my next screen to be better in these areas. Thanks!

The quality of the material to me is first rate I have the grey and there is no hotspotting at all with my hd70 at 95 inches.

Is it typical for the screen to smell terrible at first, and does this go away fairly quickly?

I left it down for about 2 hours tonight and 1/2 the house (which isn't a monstrous area) smells like... glue or something.

I've yet to use it aside from setting it up during the day, but the material looks nice- no issues I can see.

Mounting wasn't fun- partially how my room is set up, but it could have been easier. Took about 3 hours with the help of a friend.

Ok, I lied, in reality it took a friend about 3 hours with my hindrance
post #83 of 713
I ordered a 100" HDVio matte white on Wednesday and its supposed to show up here on Monday. I have a drop ceiling in the HT and am considering mounting it above the ceiling tiles. Has anyone done this and do you have any pictures showing how you boxed out the cavity for the screen? Thanks.

I think it took two weeks before the smell went away in my case. Perhaps I just got used to it.
post #85 of 713
My Da-Lite screen that I used to have smelled terrible for about 2-3 weeks. It goes away eventually. BTW I am getting ready to hang mine ( HDVio White 100") in a few minutes. We'll see how it goes!
post #86 of 713
Well Ive been lurking on this site for a while now, sooo much good info here figured I may as well post.

I just ordered the 100" White HDVio screen and will be ordering the BenQ W500 soon. Probably won't have it all setup until September when I move. Any other pictures of installed screens would be great!
post #87 of 713
better to wait until you actually need to use it before purchasing since prices seems to be changing rapidly and a new PJ popping up every month :-)
post #88 of 713
I would agree with you, trying to spread out the purchase of everything over the next month and a half, projector will probably be one of the last items I pickup. Can't wait to get everything setup.
post #89 of 713
I just want to thank all of you who posted reviews and comments on this thread. Based on your comments I ordered a 100" electric HDvio in matte white from HTDepot. The order and delivery process was without problems. In order to be able to hit the wall studs, vs only 1/4" panelling, I installed the screen on a 9' by 6"by 3/4" oak board and then screwed the board onto the studs. The screen works very smoothly and the remote works even with the screen pickup installed inside the drop ceiling. I've yet to order the projector, but I've narrowed my choices to the Sony vw-15 or the Benq w500.
post #90 of 713
can someone measure the width of their case for me. I am looking at a 100 inch grey screen but i have a coffereed ceiling and would like to put it in one of the sections which is about 3.5 to 4inches wide.
