The manually operated Elite Screen is everything I expected. It pulls down smoothly and evenly, locks in place on first attempt almost every time. Screen retracts very nicely all by itself. The projected image display very nicely. Viewing angle are also exceptional (as advertised). I mounted it to the ceiling in front of my wall unit (two tower cabinets with a bridge and a 42″ LED TV) using metal plates and a single link to connect it to the Elite Screen hanging loops, do the case is about 2 inches below the ceiling. Still unobtrusive, and doesn’t really detract from the way the room looks. Bottom line, truth in advertising. I like it.
