I bought this projector screen to replace a 92" manual pull-down screen from Elite Screens. It began developing horizonal lines that was visible while watching movies. I also, recently, purchased a new projector. I felt this screen would make for a good upgrade. The screen takes about 30 seconds to fully extend or retract. This may sound slow, but I found that it helps with aligning the projector image. I can adjust it to within less than an inch of increments. I wasn't able to do this with my old manual pull-down screen. It is sufficiently quiet. When I first used it, there were some ripples on the canvas. It is only noticeable when there is ambient light coming from the side. It has since gotten better. The edges appear slightly curved, but it does not detract from the image quality. The screen that I got does not retract 100%. There is a gap of about half an inch, but doesn't affect the appearance in a bad way. Some people say it smells of toxicity when they first use it. It does smell, but it's not that bad and has gotten better with time. My new Epson Home Cinema 1060 projector looks fantastic on this screen. I cannot detect the minute ripples that I mentioned while watching movies or video content. The manual control is located on the left side and the cable is about 6 feet in length. I wish the cable were detachable so that I can run it through the wall where the screen is mounted. The remote is very easy to use. For the cost, it has met my expectations. I give it a solid 4 stars and would recommend it to anyone.
