Honestly, I should be a bit more hush, hush about this screen, but happy to report that it has been a great purchase.
I am in the A/V and DJ business and around this type of gear on a regular basis (Da-lite, Draper . . etc/
For the price I decided to give it a shot and utilize it for family and/or business outdoor movie nights.
Knock on wood, but I am exceptionally pleased with this item. The Wraith Veil screen really makes the image Pop.
I am using a 4500 lumen Projector (Vivitek DW868) and have run Blu-ray and standard DVD with success.
Grant it that I do this type of a thing for a living, BUT believe that the average home user will have little to no problem
putting this together.
1) Fold out the screen frame and make sure all buttons are clicked into place.
**Tip – do not push the corner braces tight until you have the screen on
2) I personally put the screen on next – snap one corner, then the opposite and work around
3) Keep front of screen facing up.
4) Add Legs and flip front legs up so that the leg and screen are at a right angle L
5) Get helper to lift screen on leg and lock back let into place
**Do utilize the black contrasting borders to help align your image**
Cons – The frame, although more robust than expected, this is not as sturdy as a Da-Lite or Draper screen…..however it’s at 1/4 the cost
and with a little care should last for many years.
I bought this for an outdoor movie theater. It works beautifully and really makes an outstanding impression. Nice reflective screen gives really crisp picture. It comes in a very heavy professional box with rollers :). It requires a large clean area to set it up, because this screen is absolutely huge. Metal tubes are labeled with sticky labels with numbers (that peel off). One person simply can’t assemble it (I usually ignore this advice when I buy things requiring two people to build, but trust me, one person just can’t). It’s about 12 feet tall and 16 feet wide when assembled. Threading the pipes through the fabric screen sides seems simple, until you try to connect them under tension. Because the fabric is tight, you need two people, one to apply substantial tension pulling the pipes apart just enough to snap them together (without pinching and cutting the fabric…or your fingers). Two people needed to stand it up and put it in its support feet. Anchor ropes/ties and weights are needed to keep the wind from blowing it over while one person holds it up. Took one hour to assemble with two very focused people, so don’t have a backyard party and start the setup during the party. Not sure how it holds up in the rain. Kind of dread setting it up and having to do a rapid take-down due to rain or wind. Because of the difficulty in setup, I sadly can’t say I look forward to using it very often, but I do love it.
