What I'm really interested in is a comparsion of the EluneVision High Def Gray screen and the Optoma Graywolf. Is the EluneVision retroreflective? Are there noticeable sparklies on the gray screen surface? How wide is the viewing angle? Is there a noticeable drop in brightness/contrast for ceiling mounted projectors? Any feedback on these questions appreciated.

EastPorters took my order on the 28th of June and Purolator tried to deliver it on the 30th (I was not home). EastPorters cost of shipping $50, TigerDirect.ca wanted $389 for shipping a similarly sized screen. What gives?


Rollers is only about 1.5" in diameter. It moves very slowly up and down. I will time it for the detailed review but I'd say about a minute to full retract. No up-down limit adjustment. White material very susceptible to ambient light. The screen has gentle V waves. The edges curl slightly forward. In a darkened white walled room the image quality is good. I am seeing some, what I would call dusty window effect. I think it is the screen I'm seeing. It was hardly noticeable in the darkened room but this afternoon with some ambient light in the room it was quite noticeable. Considering the closest alternative would be more than twice the price I think it is good value for the money. I was using a homemade bungee cord suspended screen made from light grey Sportlight material. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=692101 I liked it better! I will probably keep this screen. I still have some light control mods to make to our living room. If it works out ok great if not it was so cheap I will take a chance on trying to modify it. It's starting to look like there might be some fairly easy solutions to he waves so I'm not too concerned about them. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=686526

Why didn't you get a fixed frame screen?

Does anyone have any screenshots of this screen's performance in ambient light?


I really like the price point of this screen, especially for a fixed screen.


But, I will be watching sports during the day, and will have some ambient light. According to projector central's calculator, I need a 1.8 gain screen for my setup for ideal viewing.


Will 1.4 be enuf? That seems to be the question. It seems like eastporters has a very good return policy, which is intriguing me to just pull the trigger.



Hmmmm.

Tiddler, I have a question. With those screen shots had you done any room modifications yet or were the walls and ceiling still white?

Sorry for the late response. To be honest, I found the picture quality of my BOC DIY screen to be about the same as the Elunevision white pulldown. However, my DIY started developing ripples as the cloth sagged a bit after about a week. I will be trying my hand at another DIY screen at some point. I'm happy enough with the Elunevision screen, but I want to see what a grey screen will do for my Panny 900U.

Brockoli, you mentioned you had BOC before the screen. How would you describe the difference?

Smitty, how far from your 106" screen will you mount your Panny 900?

Thanks Smitty. I am mounting my panny on a stand, which will also be 16 feet from the screen. I can't wait to get My Elune Vision Screen.

After not getting my DIY screen completed over the past year, I decided to give this Elunevision screen a try. I ordered the 106" gray screen. I expect it in the next day or two and will provide some feedback once I get it set up and running. Hopefully it will be better than the BOC one I'm using now.

I'm considering an EluneVision fixed frame screen.


Can anybody comment on how the black aluminum handles light absorption? Is there any reflection or is it as effective as black velvet?


Thanks.

I have an Elune Vision screen and think it is marvelous.

Here are some pics:


First, my old blackout cloth screen, which I will be replacing:



Okay, now onto the Elune Vision screen!


Frame:



Additional Pieces (Corner clamps, tension clips, screws, Allens wrench):



Closeup view of Tension clips:



Closeup of 1 Tension clip sitting on frame (Yes the frame is aluminum and is black though it is more of a grey-black then a true dark black):



The Instructions sheet:



The screen material:



Corner assembled. That is the mounting bracket you see:



Closeup of frame and parts, those poles in the plastic baggie slip into edge of screen for tension clips to grab onto:

Assembled leaning against wall:



Assembled and mounted on theater wall:




In action (It's actually way brighter than this in person. I suck at taking in-action shots):






Bottom line. For the price, it's an amazing bargain. Better than my blackout cloth screen due to better blacks (I have the hi-def gray screen). I don't get the dirty window effect. Screen is perfectly taut and the texture never shows up unless the screen is all white (which almost never happens). My Sanyo Z2 lights this baby great. High definition is amazing on it. I was worried that the price would mean "you get what you pay for." I am a very picky person and even my father-in-law came over to see it. He paid over $3K for his Stewart 100 inch screen and said he thought my screen was amazing.


The only downer is the black, painted aluminum doesn't do a great job of light absorption, since it isn't draped in black cloth. This is a non-issue for me as I have my image mapped almost perfectly to end where the screen ends. The screen is a true 16:9 screen. Would I buy again? You better believe it!

What is the size of your new screen? I have been toying with getting a new "commercial" screen. My first one was a graywolf but a. it was too small (92") and b the texture really got to me so I replaced it with a 100" Bher silverscreen screen painted right on the wall. This is working very well however gain is VERY low and the seating arrangement is not working well for the flow of our living room. I thought about other diy options but I am just not that handy. I am thinking about either the 106" or the 120". I am using a Z3 myself, thats why I am curious as to the size of yours.
