Smile Motorized Ceiling Mount Screen Advice

Hello All,

I am new to the home theater world and I just purchased an Espon 5030UB projector and I am in the market for a good projector screen. I am looking for a screen in the 135-150" range depending on the total length of the unit is because I have about 140-145" of total wall to play with. I would like to be a motorized, ceiling mounted (below ceiling, not in ceiling), and I am looking for the biggest bang for my buck. My budget is about $1500 give or take.

I originally was looking at the different screens Elite Screens sold but I noticed a come theme in the reviews which was that the screen eventually developed rolls in the screen and that their customer service was horrible which I was afraid of. Then I looked at a few other brand which were in the $4000+ range which kinda freaked me out a bit lol

So in a nutshell, if anyone has any recommendations on a great quality screen that fits this particular need I would be greatly appreciative. Thanks in advance!

Also, have you ever heard anything about the Elite Screens? Are they as bad as I have been hearing?

Re: Motorized Ceiling Mount Screen Advise

Rats - I have a 106" Da-Lite motorized screen in perfect condition that I no longer need! It's still mounted to the ceiling. So I can vouch for the Da-Lite being a great motorized screen.

ps - if anyone is in the market for mine i'm open to offers.

Re: Motorized Ceiling Mount Screen Advise

I highly recommend Screen Innovations as a company... great customer service - they once re shipped a new screen next day freight because the original screen had a small defect in it.... no charges just fixed the problem immediately without question...

That said I dont think your going to find a motorized screen in the $1500 price range / in the size your looking for .. My suggestion is a fixed screen in the performance line ....
