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.
