Good Value, Looks Nice, But Could Be Improved

Posted

Pros: Looks good, strong and sturdy, very affordable

Cons: Shorter and shallower than the pictures elude, no pathways for cables

Ease of Assembly: The hardest part of assembling the entertainment center was opening the box. From what I experienced, I envision this as a new event in a strongman competition. The commercial strength construction adhesive used to secure the flaps was significantly stronger than the cardboard itself, which itself is thick and inflexible (excellent for security and protection, but frustrating if you want whats inside). One may find it easier to cut the box rather than attempting to pry the flaps open. Exhausted from opening the box, I was finally able to retrieve the parts and lay them out. Although the instructions refer to parts as A, B, C, etc., the parts themselves are not labeled....

Unbeatable Value, High Quality, Excellent Performance

Posted

Pros: Affordable, attractive, sturdy

Cons: Finger numbing tabs, takes some tweaking to make perfectly square corners, couple minor blemishes in velvet on frame, support bar vibration

Another one of my budget home theater purchases was this Elite Screens 110" Sable Fixed Frame screen I bought on Amazon. I was first drawn to this screen due to the price, but most importantly, the availability of a 110" screen (Monoprice does not offer one, 106 was too small and 120 was way too big). Elite Screens offers some of the most affordable projection screens I found, which would usually trigger a red flag as I am typically a supporter of the "you get what you pay for" statement. However, that statement certainly does not apply this screen. The screen frame itself is made of aluminum, which is lightweight yet very sturdy once assembled. Upon assembly, it did take some tweaking...

Edit: Just realized I posted this review under the 100" screen vs. the 110" screen I actually have. Regardless, all of my feedback should apply to both, so I feel confident in leaving this here for others to read that might be looking at the 100" variant.

Excellent Quality, Low Profile Design, Easy Adjustment, Good Price Point

Posted

Pros: Easy installation, low profile, easy adjustment

Cons: No drywall toggles

Although I purchased the white version of the mount, I didn't find it necessary to add a completely new product since the only difference is color. I used this mount to hang an Epson 5020 from our basement ceiling. Since the room the projector is mounted in is a multi-function room and not a dedicated theater room, I needed something white, to blend in better, and low profile, to keep the projector up and out of the way. I chose this unit based upon these parameters, its price point, and positive reviews. Although the mount comes with everything you need, the additional of some heavy duty drywall toggles would have been nice for those of us crazy enough to hang a projector from drywall....
