    Great concept...but major flaws

    Posted

    Pretty well made product and love the concept of being portable...however some major design flaws keep it from being great. 1. In all the pictures the top center of the screen looks flat and clean but in reality at the center top of the screen you see the top of a black support bracket just above the center of the screen. None of the pictures online show this. I can possibly get used to this over time however the online pictures are misleading. On to issue #2 2. The top of the screen again is the Achilles Heel of this product. In addition to issue #1, the top center of the screen does not stay flat when it is extended for viewing, it curls backward. There is nothing to support the screen from behind so when you extend the side rails to the width you want you will see the top of the screen curl backwards. Absolutely unacceptable for me as it just looks bad and you can't get the picture level with the top of the screen. I thought it was just a bad unit so I returned it and got another and had the exact same problem. Other than those two issues it's a good unit. Those issues are showstoppers for me so I am looking for another option. These may not be issues for all people.

    Expected better quality

    For how much I paid for this projector screen, I expected to get something better quality than this. The screen assembly started falling apart the first time I took it out of the box. Screws were falling off, plastic parts were busting and now it doesn't close properly. Again, this was just after unboxing it and opening it up one time. The idea of this is great, it's nice and compact and easy to move from place to place. And Epson is usually a quality brand but they seriously skimped on materials and missed the mark on this product. It's extremely flimsy to boot. Kind of wobbles on the stand and doesn't give me any confidence that it's not going to fall apart in the middle of a presentation.

    Good things and a few challenges

    I needed this for a non-profit group and meetings we hold for up to 125 people. The good: I like the way it folds up and how easy it is to carry. Everything is easy and intuitive. I was impressed with the dual widths, though I'm not sure I'll ever use the narrower one. The screen itself and its housing seem pretty solid. The price seemed reasonable. The challenges: As others have stated, the screen is not solid on the legs...I put this up on a table and was worried it might tip over, as the screen is way heavier than the base. I actually wished it were wider for my purposes. The back of the room couldn't see it as well as those closer in. But I knew this limitation going in.

    I purchased this screen for my Business as I do a lot of Hotel Seminars. The first one I got shipped to me was damaged in Shipping. I took it back to the Store and picked up a new one with no problems. The materials used to build the screen are pretty much all plastic and the Metal used is not that strong. It looks nice but I am afraid that it may not hold up very long. I am going to utilize it for as long as I can. I am concerned about the strength and long term use of the product. I feel it will not be too long before it starts to fall apart.

    It’s okay. We used this screen for presentations at work. I travel a lot so the storage/travel feature is great. Packs up nicely and It doesn’t take up too much space. However the screen width is way too big for the screens length and sags/bends in the middle when opened all the way. It bothers me a lot but may not bother others. Good portable screen though.

    they didn't have the movie screen I wanted, sales person suggested this one, 1,000 time better same price. I travel and lecture frequently (PowerPoint). This is light weight, easily carried by one, ENTIRE SCREEN RETRACTS INTO LIGHTWEIGHT HARD CASE SO DURABLE AND PROTECTED! This rocks! I highly recommend this. 1 minute set up, portable, protected. Perfect!

    I comparison shopped for portability and price. This was by far the best option. I'm a small woman and it was not too heavy for my to carry each day back and forth to a class I was teaching. I personally liked the fact that it could remain neatly closed on the tripod until I was ready to open it. Which took seconds. I received numerous inquiries about where I bought it and countless compliments. Love it.

    I got the screen for our backyard drive-in movies. I’m disappointed in the size, would prefer much larger. Even more disappointed with Best Buy policy for restocking fee so I could not return or exchange it for a larger screen. I think the size screen is great for indoor use or application in a smaller venue.

    I do Client events and as the speaker, I needed a portable screen for those times that the venue does not have a screen. This is a great option because it gives me the option to use a normal or wide screen setup. Easy to use and set up and lightweight to travel with.

    Great Portable/Permanent Screen, minor issue

    I bought a second model of this screen to accommodate the need for two portable screens. I've been extremely happy with the previous model. This one came with a little issue. The plastic rounded piece at the top of the tripod pole falls off. This isn't a major issue, but it's not quite as sturdy as the other one I have.

    Solid construction. Excellent view quality. Lacks the ability to easily raise or lower the screen. the default height is a little low to set it on the ground, and the base is too wide to place on top of a single folding table. Other than that it's a nice projector screen.

    This is a practical screen- no other area to go for a real home theater here in Florida with no basement. We decided to take the home theater experience outdoors; let me tell you...we do not regret it..makes for great summer nights. Love the easy storage too...it doesn’t take much space. Highly recommended it.

    I recently bought this for one of my offices, and now wish I had found it before buying other screens for other offices. Extremely sturdy, all-in-one piece of equipment. My team can even feel comfortable taking it to off-site events knowing that it looks and works wonderfully professional!

    I love this screen. You can use if for 4;3 Aspect ratio or 16:9 ratio. It is compact and easy to use. Not only does it come with a stand, but one can also mount this screen on a wall. It would be great if it came with a carrying case, too.

    This screen is great for anyone who travels for work and does presentations! I is easy to transport and take from location to location. It does also come with a bracket so you can hang on the wall if you choose to leave it in one location. Only down side is its a bit bulky. Some may find it hard to carry, but its not to bad.

    This screen has no center support. The screen constantly moves with the any movement in the room etc. This causes distortion and distraction with viewing. I ended up going to a fixed unit on the wall. For a portable screen, it was convenient (handles etc.)

    Good product, well built and functional. Only negative is that the top of the screen rolls over when screen is extended. Also the unit is quite heavy but this is probably because of its solid build. Functionally worked well for us.
