I just wanted to put in a good word here for Carada.




I recently purchased the 118" Brilliant White Criterian Series in 16:9 (1.78-1)




I am not overly handy around the house. Installation was incredibly easy and well spelled out in the instructions.


It took me all of about 5 minutes to assemble the frame and that was mostly because of taking it out of wrapping and moving around the floor. Installing the screen was also incredibly fast and easy on the frame.


The wall Brackets were very easy as well to install. I first marked all the studs on my wall and ended up putting a center hole in the upper 48" bracket and once I did that I had almost every other hole align in a stud. This all took me maybe 10 minutes (aside from finding studs). the bottom bracket was somewhat more difficult, but only still took 10 minutes as I was nervous my measurement was off and I had to make sure like three times.


I had a friend help me lift the screen up to hang it, again very easy. Popping it on the bottom bracket made me somewhat nervous but I just followed the directions and pushed down and it snapped right on.


As for how it looks with my Sony HW40ES?


Incredible. I swear I would think it was a 118" wall mounted tv, it's bright vivid and looks incredible.




I wasn't sure with going Brilliant White, but that was the recommendation and I took it. My throw is just at 15' and it's incredible.


VERY VERY happy.


I have no idea why anyone would spend $3000 for a different screen in a light controlled room. There is absolutely no way, it would give 4x the performance for that cost.


Thank you Carada for a great product.

I was lucky and got it right the first time but I can see how someone could easily misunderstand the instructions. Overall it was really simple and hassle-free though.
I'm not the handiest person either and was PARANOID while hoping I figured out the brackets correctly. I would have preferred something along the lines of:

For a 96" screen, measure the holes for the bottom bracket "X Inches from the holes for the top bracket". Regardless, it was still a very easy and quick install.

Looky here!

Your experience sounds great! I bought a 134" BW Criterion but just now painting the walls. I have a Sony 40ES. I'm about two weeks away from hanging the screen and projector. I just need to figure out the best throw distance for 134". I have the option for any distance, using the calculators I'm thinking 15 or 16 feet. I can't wait to get it up and working.

Tom, I'm at 14'6" or so


It easily would have thrown to a 134" screen. I'd say 16' would be perfect.


It's a bright projector and I'm glad I did the Brilliant White. Yours should be nearly exact with a larger screen and a larger throw distance it should equal out. It may be somewhat less bright, but I don't know how much the 1' will matter.

I have never seen any sparkles and I sit about 12 feet away on a 118" BW screen.

I've got a Carada High Contrast Grey screen, not yet hung on the wall. While examining the screen surface with a flashlight I noticed that it lets through a fair bit of light. This makes me wonder if backscatter from my light-colored wall will affect the image. Anybody got an opinion on this? Is it worthwhile covering the portion of the wall that will be behind the screen with a black cloth before I hang this thing?

Light hitting a light colored wall will bounce back. Yes putting a black cloth behind the screen, or painting the wall behind the screen black, is a good idea.

Curious as to why you went with the Grey screen?

My projector dealer recommended it because my room has light-colored walls and a white ceiling. I have been second-guessing myself ever since, but will withhold judgment until my projector arrives and I see how it performs.

I would ask David from Carada for his opinion too.

I've only had mine up and running for 4 days. But I have not seen any sparkles at all. It's been a completely clean image. Honestly, it looks like a panel it's so clean.


I couldn't compare it to a stewart or jkp as I have never had one. But I see no way in a light controlled room that something 4 or 5 times more expensive would give that much benefit.


Just my opinion.

Depending on how critical you are about seeing screen textures, there are almost no screens that are entirely "texture-free."
Some people will not notice texture on the most "sparkly" screens, while other super picky people (like me) will notice it on even the most neutral screen surfaces.

That said, if you are looking for as little texture as possible in a screen surface, the Carada screens are among the very best choices. They show very little screen texture for the vast majority of image content.

OK, I did and he is of the opinion that there wouldn't be any visible difference, but that I could do it if it would help my peace of mind.

BTW, Carada = best customer service ever.

The one thing I don't like about my Carada screen. It looks SO nice up on the wall, that everyone who sees it is compelled to walk up to it and feel the felt material.

I just think "please don't put your greasy paws on my screen... I might have to get a rope barricade or something.

It's hard to love Martin Logans and 2.35:1 CIH at the same time...

A sign would be equally effective.....do not touch unless you want a donkey punch......

I told my 8 yr old daughter to never ever touch the screen the day it was installed. Maybe an hour later, the installer told me he caught her running her finger along the screen and he did not even have to say anything as she ran out of the home theater.....priceless.

Search the DIY screen forum for "my latest masking trial" for the manual DIY setup I've been using for years.

I watched HTTYD2 last night on my Carada 112" 2:35:1 and I have to say it looked fantastic. My PJ and screen don't have the pop my Sammy D8000 has, but man it is really close, the detail in that movie last night was spectacular. I am glad now I went with the brilliant white.

If it will be to bright with this projector in 2D and I do watch 3D also. If others had done a DIY screen and seen improvements in PQ with manufactured screen.

If you don't have allot of light coming in, the screen will be very good and most likely an improvement over your old screen. My panasonic 8000 is a bright projector and I don't find it bright at all.
