dalite's website isn't much use as far as seeing a difference. is it just case styling?


if i was going to build the screen into the ceiling is there a better dalite electric choice (ie, it can be ugly, if its less than the two mentioned above) fabric is to be high power.


thanks!

most of the differences relating to the Dalite electric screens are based on the size and shape of the screen casing. If i remember correctly, the Cosmo is a large and bulky case while the contour is a smaller and more eye appealing case.

Cosmopolitan has a one-piece hexagonal steel case. Contour has a two-piece curved aluminum case. Contour adds about $200 to the list price (of 110" 16x9). Da-Lite also offers electric models designed to be recessed into the ceiling. They are about $800-$1000 MORE expensive than the Cosmopolitan and Contour. All this info is from the Da-Lite website.

I know nothing about your referenced online store. If I were you , I would certainly call the AVScience store (link at the top of this page) and ask for a quote. They have very fair pricing, and you will be supporting this forum.

As FLBoy said, the Cosmopolitan is a "standard" case...if you disected it and looked from the side, it would be flat on the back, and then in the shape of a stop sign around the bottom, opposing side and top. The Contour, taken the same way, is flat on the back, flat on the top and then a 1/4 circle on the front to the bottom, with a little "lip" at the bottom back where the material comes out.


The Contour is a bit more sleak looking if it is going to be seen.

The roller and internals are the same.
