Re: Jamestown Home Theater Screen review

Just a heads up. Jamestown Screens is going to be offering a curved screen. I am excited.

Re: Jamestown Home Theater Screen review

Have anyone order from Jamestown recently? What's their wait time these days for delivery?

I sent them an email couple days ago and still haven't receive a response.

I'm considering a 110" 2.35:1 screen from Jamestown. The system for screen material attachment/stretching, which would seem to allow me to change to nearly any other material later, has me intrigued. I have two concerns and hope someone here can chime in.

First, from the photos in this review the outer frame corners appear to be butt joints instead of mitred joints (which provide a more finished appearance in my opinion). Is this noticeable when the room lights are on?

Second, does the interface between the outer frame and the screen provide a tight, straight screen border without casting any shadows (from the projected image) on the screen?

Regards,

Re: Jamestown Home Theater Screen review

Considering the screen I posted this review on is now 4 years old I have not had one issue with it. The butt joints is fairly standard as it has to be shipped in pieces so miter joints would not work and it looks fine even with the lights on.
As well there is no shadow cast by the image with the boarder made the way it is, again fairly standard for a fixed screen.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Thanks! I think that seals the deal.
