Background: I have an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3010 projector which is set up on a 21' x 13' basement. The wall used to be our screen but I decided to get a real one. As I wanted something cheaper and fun to do, I chose to build it on my own. I can say that, once you have all materials and tools, the process is quite easy and entertaining.
Indeed, as it's almost unanimous in other reviews, the cloth is of excellent quality. But more than that, Carl's Place (the seller) is extremely helpful in terms of providing instructions on how to use their product. One concern I hear very often is about the wrinkles. I got it folded (you have the choice to have it rolled for a few extra bucks) which causes a lot of wrinkles. That's not a problem though as by just stretching and stapling it on the frame -- without really doing anything special -- all wrinkles disappear.
One difference from most other folks is the fact that I utilized the entire cloth as-is to make my screen without leaving a buffer, cutting pieces or wrapping around the frame. I put staples in the very edge of the cloth to maximize the viewable area and it worked perfectly. I then covered the staples and surrounded the edges with black artist tape.Read more ›
- It really is blackout material - meaning no light passes through it.
I'm very happy with the material, it's a massive improvement over the bare white wall I was projecting on.
The 0.9 to 1.0 Gain basically means its reflectivity is neutral, not too shiny and doesn't absorb light. This is a good thing when it comes to home theaters. Basically, the the higher the gain, the narrower the viewing angle (from center). Also, the higher you go in gain, the more likely you are to get brightness hot spots and issues with red, green, blue reflecting differently.
Really the only time you want a material with gain more than 1.0 to 1.3 is when projecting in well lit areas like conference rooms. I project in a fairly dark area that only has LED lights for ambient lighting so this material's gain is perfect. By the way, LED lights are low radiation light sources meaning they wont wash out a projected image nearly as much as fluorescent or incandescent lights.
When it arrived, it was folded down in to about a 1' x 1' square with wrinkle lines. The wrinkles were not a problem for me because of how I mounted the screen. I stretched and tacked it flush to a wall, used floor-board trim (painted black matte/blackout) to frame it over top of the material, and trimmed off excess material that stuck out from the outer edges of the trim.
Here's how I did it so that there were no wrinkles.
I used thumb tacks to anchor it to my wall at only the 4 corners, stretching it fairly taut. Leaving it anchored at the 4 corners, I started from the top left pulling 6" of cloth tight horizontally and tacking it down. Then I pulled 6" down the left side vertically tight and tacked it down.Read more ›
However I was hoping to save a little more money than I did by building myself. After parts (eg wood, trim, right-angle brackets, screws, heavy-duty hanging kit, stapler, etc.) I was well over $140. Still cheaper than buying a fully constructed screen but just more than expected. If your wanting a 3-4hr project and need a cheaper but good quality screen - then my recommendation is a confident "go-for-it".
