How do you figure that? I paid $340 for a 135" screen shipped from Jamestown.

SeymourAV is around 1200. 4x as much.

Granted they probably can have it to my door within a week.
OOps... I thought they had a breakdown version just like Jamestown. My mistake.

I forgot to mention my buddy ordered his screen on 2/19 and he's in the same boat. No response and/or no screen.

I ordered a 120" and it took a while but when he finally got back to me he said there was a death or something happened in the family. I finally got mine and love it - except for the waves I have yet to take/smooth out.!

Ya when I called he was taking his mother to the hospital and told me to send him an email... I sent two and haven't heard back.

My buddy who ordered his on the 19th called this morning and the guy told him that he would have his shipped out thursday.

If indeed true thats just digging the knife further since I ordered mine 9 days earlier.

Mind you I ordered and received my screen many months ago.

Re: Jamestown Screen delivery times? 6 weeks and still no screen

Update:

Received email from "James" and told me they are finishing up in the next 3-4 days and will send a UPS tracking as it ships. If this means business days then this means shipment around 4/1 via ground meaning get the screen around the 7th-8th = 8 weeks. My buddies too.

Well, I hope my patience pays off. Glad he responded and at this point might as well give him the 3-4 days. I ordered a custom size of 135" meaning I had to pay for the 140" size. but did not want 140.

These screens must be the cat's meow for so many people to put up with so much for so long for little in return. I would try to negotiate some type of compensation such as a 5% discount or at least a 2GB thumb drive!!!

I wouldn't put up with it again thats for sure. I just wanted an economy screen and wait is what you pay for. I had discussions with a co-worker that ended up buying an Elite screen on amazon prime and paid for overnight and had it the next day.

He told me (before I ordered) that he would of gone Jamestown but read too many reviews that it took on average 4-6 weeks to get the screen.

I ordered Jamestown kinda expecting that but before I ordered the guy told me 15 business days to complete order then ship. It's taken twice that now. He claims from all the storms they have had has caused delays.

Not sure.

Anyway I went into it with knowing I was dedicating my time doing some sheetrock work in my kitchen/bedroom, texturing and repainting the entire interior of my home. After 6 weeks I'm near completion and fixing to be ready to paint the theater and now want my screen.

If I don't see shipping notification by this time next week I'll cancel and overnight me a screen from amazon.
