What are the pros and cons of front projection screens that use velcro vs snaps for attaching to the frame? Also, since I will be moving my soon-to-be-purchased screen to a new location next year, how difficult is it to disassemble an aluminum frame? Thanks.

Samsung 8000 @ 65 in; X1S primarily to upconvert Blu-Ray and Netflix/Amazon apps to Dolby Atmos; Samsung 950 Soundbar.

I have the Draper Cineperm that uses the
snaps. I don't know how a screen that uses
velcro could stay tight in my opinion. I
know they sell these but I would think that
they would eventually pull loose. My Draper
that uses the snaps is pulled tight with no
wrinkles. Actually quite a few of the snaps
were hard to snap together it was that
tight. The screen surface is almost like a
percussion drum surface. The frame on mine
would be difficult to break down, not
impossible however.
