Movie Screen In A Snap (Pun Intended)
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The screen ships directly from the manufacturer, so the screen arrived about a week after I received my Epson projector. Crutchfield indicated that the screen is not fabricated until the order has been received, so I interpret that as a "fresh made to order" screen. Upon receiving the screen, it took me about 45 minutes to mount and install. It will require a few tools (drill and drill bit) and any other mounting screws that you will need to mount to your wall. The metal frame goes together very easily, securing the connection points with about 4 screws. After figuring out placement on the wall, I marked the frame where I needed to drill holes to properly mount to frame to the drywall and studs (another 8-10 wood screws). After mounting the frame, the screen uses button snaps to attach to the frame. Fairly straightforward mounting. The screen has a very nice pearlescent sheen to it and my projection image is nice and bright and clear. I replaced a 52" LCD TV with this HD projector and screen and I love the new "movie" room for event watching. The only surprise was that the black button snaps are exposed. It is still a nice clean exterior finish on the edge of the screen, but I was under the impression based on the product images that the buttons were concealed. I still like the overall finish and look, but would have been willing to pay a few more dollars for some type of frame edging that would conceal the button snaps.
Pros: Easy Installation Pearlescent screen Easy snap mounting to frame
Cons: Buttons are exposed (a minor issue)
