Akia Screens

Just wondering if anyone else has gone with one of these. I was looking for a simple, zero edge screen for my bedroom setup and stumbled upon these Akia screens on Amazon.
At under $200 for the 100" I figured I'd give it a shot and was pleasantly surprised by the quality, ease of assembly and performance with my Benq ht2050.
It appears they are perhaps a subsidiary of Elite Screens.

I'm looking at this exact screen, and I also have a HT2050. Do you have any screenshots? Mine will also be for a bedroom setup.

How is this screen holding up? Does it seem to be the same material as elite screens cinewhite? Does it look good?

It's holding up great, no issues at all. It appears to be the exact same as the Elite.

I got my 125” akia screen set up last night and I am super impressed with the quality. It is awesome and feels very sturdy. Picture is awesome! I have a elite screen cinewhite sample and it looked like very very similar material if not the same

Thanks it’s coming together. Going to remove the bead board paneling and paint the rest gray. I’ve made a bunch of changes to get the bigger screen

So I ordered one of these since Amazon had a coupon that brought it down to $193.50 (no tax either). It came today and its actually an Elite with the Cinewhite screen material. Even has the Elite logo on the bottom horizontal peice.
I'll get it hung tomorrow before work. I have a Benq 2050A and I'm currently shooting onto a light grey wall. Hope it makes a pretty big difference.

Ordered up the 125" version for my main setup. Will be replacing my Elite 106" pull down.
Will have to do some modifications to keep my 65" 900e in the mix(articulating mount) but am looking forward to having a better and bigger screen. Will report back!

The screen has arrived! Should have it up by end of weekend. Will pretty much require a total re do of my system. Have to move the movie shelving and I also purchased a 40" articulating tv mount to still keep my 65" 900e in the mix. Getting rid of my tv console and moving all my electronics to a Pangea rack near the back of my room. Awaiting couple longer cables etc but hopefully the end result will be awesome.
The 106" pull down served it's purpose for the past three years first with my HT2050 and then my HT3550, but I wanted a "real" screen so wish me luck!
