I try to to be fair, so as I stated before there are some cons that come with the screen. It has a slight bias towards blue so it is not ISF certified. If you do not like a cooler image, you will have to calibrate your projector once you receive this screen. Also I will state that I've never been someone to notice such things as screen door effect, shimmering, or sparkles. Shimmering is a common attribute for ALR screens with gain added so if you were to receive this screen your mileage may vary as far as any degree of shimmer that you might notice. Once again I have not noticed any shimmering, however I cannot speak for everyone.
I sat at 45 degree and 60 degree angles from the screen. I did not notice any perceived drops in brightness. When walking around the screen from left to right I'm sure there is a gradual drop off in brightness however it is so gradual that I did not notice it.
I know this screen cannot bend the laws of physics. So there has to be a drop-off in brightness for the viewing cone to work, however once again I can only state from my personal experience I've not noticed any significant drop off in brightness when I walk from left to right of the screen. I've never uploaded a video on to this website, however I could try walking from left to right of the screen tonight and upload a video. However, if my phone's camera does anything to deter from the brightness I'm actually seeing in person, I will not upload it.
One thing I can state for sure, is this screen retains the deepest black levels of any alr screen I've ever seen or owned. My custom screen builder who's seen just as many screens as me, was also blown away by the performance of this product. We both went in thinking this product will be a decent competitor to the Black Diamond for a cheaper price. Nothing more. Neither one of us expected to be blown away by the results with his product. But we both admitted we were floored upon seeing it and never saw any other ALR screen hold black levels this efficiently. The pictures don't lie on that and what I'm seeing in person is actually deeper black levels than the pictures are showing. Where you're seeing shades of blue in some of these pictures is actually a deep black in person. As I stated before, this phone does not do this screen complete justice to what I'm seeing in person. But the images are still good enough to where I'm trying to share online to show others the performance of this screen.
The most frustrating thing about this website sometime is the constant bickering over products when people do not have a visual benchmark of what is being discussed. By that what I mean is you have to get out and see products sometime in your life. If you're only going by other people's reviews, professional reviews, and scientific breakdowns about how a product works that is only one aspect of product research. But you, yourself need to have a visual benchmark for some of the top products in the industry. If anyone has seen the Black Diamond, Stewart Firehawk, DNP 08 Blade, etc in person they will understand what I'm saying. It's readily apparent what those screens do well along with their flaws once you see them in person. It's something that could be assessed in one minute or less. So once you have that established you can come online and have a discussion as to how new products compare to the benchmark products for the alr market.
Seeing the Black Diamond, Darkstar, etc can at least give you a reference for what I'm attempting to show. But if you never seen any of these materials and you only going by online research you're not going to understand what I'm trying to get across here.
I also wanted to add that people should not believe the baseless jargon that is spoken here when it comes to weak rooms. I used to have a bat cave where all my walls were painted jet black. The contrast levels I had in that room were off-the-charts like sitting in a space auditorium. However, even in my current room with white walls all around I am able to get reasonably deep black levels assuming I use a higher contrast projector such as my previous JVC and my current Sony projector paired with an alr screen.
