Some had asked if it is cut at an angle on the at screen. I am not an expert on identifying this, but here are two photos of the weave on the bottom left and right corners of the screen. The black out of focus is the corner of the frame so you have a reference of square.

These fixed framed screens really do look like a huge LED mounted on the wall.
I originally was considering going with a DIY Carls cloth screen, but the ST seems very appealing given the cost.

Could you elaborate more on how the ST material compares to the Carls cloth?

Is the ST material spandex?

You know, I typed spandex but according to Silver Ticket website it's a matte vinyl.

My screen didn't make it for the weekend install and Super Bowl, will be delivered by Fed Ex today, so I'll take down the Carls and install the ST tonight (and will take pics).

How did the screen work out for Super Bowl? What are your impressions of the white Silver Ticket screen with the Sony HW40es? I wanted the 110" but it would have been too tight in my small game room so I opted for the 106".

(Also, why are you selling your Sony HW40es? just curious...)

The screen looks really good. I'll be changing it out for the silver 1.5 gain screen in a month or two since my room is not light controlled. The one I'm selling is an extra one.

Anyone got any tips on how to install the center bar brace? Building frame and screen were easy but this damn center bar just won't fit. Checked Youtube and all I found was a quick time video where the guy makes it look easy (it's not!)

Thanks in advance

I just slid it in at an angle and then pulled it straight.

Did you have to unhook the screen when you did it? Or was everything fully assembled? I tried both options, couldn't get it to fit.

. As you can see from the pics, the center bar is the same height as the sides but not in the middle. I don't want to force it because it's already ripped into the underside of the screen (thankfully not visible from the front). So, just a little frustrated. Will try and tackle it again tonight just wanted to check here if anyone had any tricks to getting it in there.

They make it look so easy lol

Have you tried loosening the screws that hold the joints together in the middle? Your screen defintely looks a little bowed in the middle. Mine was still a little bowed after I put the center piece in, but it's very hard to notice. I installed that piece after I assembled the screen.

Haven't tried to loosen the middle joints, didn't think it would make much of a difference since that is pretty solid. But at this point I'm out of options, so may try that tonight! And my screen is definitely bowing in the middle just can't figure out why or how to fix it (that is what the center bracket is supposed to correct!).

I did loosen 2 of the corner brackets on the top of frame and even removed them in order to insert the bar into the frame and then tried to reattach but then I had problems attaching the screen. Probably why the instructions have installing the center bracket LAST.

I know it shouldn't be this difficult and I know exactly how it should fit in there, I just can't get it to fit (and it's driving me a little nuts lol)

Have you seen the support bar install demo video on Silver Ticket Products website? Not sure if its the same video you referred to above...

Yes, thanks, this is the same one. I wish mine was that easy!

I also noticed that his screen is not bowed inward in the middle as mine is, so it makes his inserting that bar a lot easier.

I'm going to try again tonight and will post my results.

Dumb question, but is it possible that you mistakenly ended up with a support bar that was supposed to go with a larger screen? Is the correct length listed in the instructions?

Not a dumb question, I thought the same as well but the center brace is the same length as the side of the frame.

UPDATE: I was able to get the brace in place Only thing I did differently was pull really hard on the center of the frame to make room to insert the bar. I think the night before I was being too careful and cautious as I didn't want to rip or damage the screen. So depending on how bowed your frame is, it'll take some elbow grease but pull it hard enough and you'll be able to insert the brace. Pics below.

SCREEN IMPRESSIONS: Absolutely lovin' the screen. HUGE upgrade from my old Carls blackout cloth DIY screen. Blacks are now dark and inky, colors are brighter and have more pop and the overall image is very silky and glossy. Definitely a noticeable difference between the vinyl screen material of the Silver Ticket vs the fabric of the Carls. Even with the lights on I still get a nice clear picture with only a little washout. It really does look like a huge LED TV on my wall, very happy and highly recommend. Simply cannot get a better screen for the price.

Glad you got it figured out. I hope someone picks up a silver 1.5 gain screen soon and post a review. BTW, what game is that?

Hmm... I have the grey one, and it's decent enough. Curious about silver tho.

Wasn't going to comment on your questionable game choice

Does anyone know if Silver Ticket will send samples of the different screens?

Like others have noted, the instructions are useless, you can toss those out. The overall make of the frame is pretty good. I did notice it wasn't completely firm in the middle when I was picking it up from the center without a screen. Once I hung it with a screen and on the included mount the problem went away.

The screen was on a roll, didn't have any issues with creases etc.

One unexpected item was the black screen backing that was included was a separate sheet which worked out well for me. I had painted everything behind the screen dark already so didn't need the backing. So I ended up using it to make covers for under the screen.

Thanks for posting all the photos! I have been considering the curved version of this same size screen. I was wondering what that French cleat was for near the bottom of the screen? Was that for hanging up your black covers or did it support the screen in some way? I would expect to see one or two of these at the top to hang on but not the bottom. Also, I see a few waves or wrinkles in your screen surface. Do you think those can be pulled out somehow or does the screen surface not pull tight in those areas?

Purchased and assembled this screen (White, 106") and it's really a classy and well built item. Excellent color, brightness and blending with my Optoma HD141X. Installing that center brace at the end is a real PITA but I was able to get it using all my might.

Unfortunately, while setting up my projector for some testing I noticed 2 distinct black lines across the screen, only visible when the color White is projected on it and you're sitting right in front of it. Upon closer inspection you can barely see some sort of abrasion where the lines are. To the naked eye in normal light you can't see it, even if you know where they are. After the incredible effort it took to get the center bar in place - I was pretty disappointed.

It was 9:45PM EST on Tuesday when I sent Silver Ticket and message through Amazon about this issue. Literally, 5 minutes later I had a response back apologizing for the defect and asking for some pics and a shipping address.

5 mins after I sent them pics and address, yep, they got back to me. They indicated this new screen would be visually inspected and shipped using 2 day priority. Unbelievable customer support so far!

I'll check back in once I receive and install the new screen but so far I'm very impressed with the overall construction and customer service.

Do you think those can be pulled out somehow or does the screen surface not pull tight in those areas?


Yes, the bottom of the screen rests on that so it has support at the top and bottom.

The wrinkles I also noticed. They are more apparent in the photo then in person. I did manage to get a couple of them out just by pulling on the screen a bit in the area. I need to spend a bit more time. I think it is more related to the rods you slide in. The springs that hold the screen are all tight. Work on it this weekend and let ya know.

Update to the screen issue I posted earlier:

Received new screen via USPS 2-day Priority, mounted again (much easier than the first time) and confirmed it was perfect with no issues what so ever. I've never experienced such responsive customer service before, with fast shipping to boot. A pleasure to deal with, really.

Now as far as the screen goes, I love it. Watched last night's Walking Dead premier on it and it was fantastic. Obviously not progressive scan content, but I've seen movies on the first screen and was very pleased as well, colors look great and everything blends very nicely, no signs of "texture" on the picture, no wrinkles or imperfections in the screen either.

I'm thoroughly pleased and highly recommend not only the product, but the company.

anyone know of an affordable masking system that could be used with these screens? I emailed Silver Ticket and asked if they had any plans for a model similar to the Monoprice Multi Format screen and they said they do not.

Just ordered the 120" 1.1 gain matte white on amazon. Should have it for this weekend. It's replacing my 7.5 year old 106" 1.0 gain cinegray elite ezframe screen. Nothing wrong with the elite screen, I just wanted to go a little bigger in the new house. I have a 16ft throw for my sony hw50es and my seat distance is about 14-15'. I suspect I won't be able to do 3d at the full 120" since it was barely bright enough on the 106" but I can count how many 3d movies I have watched on 1 hand over the last 2 years I've had the hw50. I'm making considerations for 2d only as I've come to realize 3d adds no benefit and is actually detrimental to 90% of movies (my opinion).

I'll have some ambient light because it's an open gameroom to downstairs, but no direct sunlight hits the room when I have the curtains pulled. So I'm hoping the slight brightness drop from 1.0 106" to 1.1 120" won't be noticeable. If so I'll probably adjust how aggressive my iris is to compensate.

I thought the 106" ezframe was a steal 7.5 years ago when I got it but the 120" silver ticket is 1/2 that price. So I'm curious to see how they stack up. Hopefully I'm not disappointed.

I started out with your 120" screen in matte white to go with my Epson Powerlite 2000. My living room had a lot of direct sunlight and the screen was very washed out in daylight, and since I felt I had room to go a little bigger I upgraded to the STR-169135-G Silver Ticket 135" with a grey screen. While I am happy with both screens, I think the white material made the colors a little brighter. Although the grey screen does show better with more ambient light. I have since added window treatments, a combination of blackout curtains and blinds, and have great viewing during any time of day or night. If I had to do the upgrade over again I would have gotten the bigger screen in the white material and just added window treatments. Best of luck to you, I am sure you will be pleased with your screen.

Increase in screen size was main cause of your perceived brightness decrease plus 1 vs 1.1 gain loss of gray vs white screen material. You may be pushing limits of this projector in your viewing environment. Using projector central calculator, at mid zoom we are talking 15fL. I just got Silver Ticket 112"/w gray material. Will be using a Epson Home Cinema 3000, a light cannon of a projector. Wish I could go with bigger screen but my setup is 'room challenged', gigest screen I could fit. 128" wide trapezoid shape bonus room over garage. Angled walls will reflect light even in total darkness, hence my decision to go with gray material. Arriving Saturday, will post impressions once its assembled.
