I had this setup for a backyard bonfire and it turned out very aesthetically pleasing. My wife and I used to project movies onto the garage but this year decided to use a screen to properly display a movie. The picture was very bright with our 2500 lumen movie projector. Everyone who came by said they loved the setup and was even more surprised when I told them the price for such a large screen.
I love the size of the screen. It’s easy to build with one person if you’re tall enough. I’m 5’9 and had no trouble minus moving the screen once it was fully built. I had to have my wife come help lift up the other leg to slide it across the yard as I didn’t want to drag it. But it was light enough where she didn’t have any problems lifting it. The kit came with anchors however I didn’t have to use it as even with a light breeze, the screen didn’t move. You would probably have to use it in stronger winds.
The screen itself seems very durable and the trick I found out to snap a new tight screen into place on the frame is to do three snaps of each corner first, then the middle sections next and finally work your way around the rest of the snaps. The whole kit packs into a case that fits in the back of a car so that’s a major plus. Overall I’m very happy with this kit and plan on using it for future outdoor gatherings.
I had a Camp Chef outdoor 120" screen for several years, and I really liked it....once it was set up. But setting it up with a PITA with about 20 different pieces of piping that needed to be laid out and then assembled, and then screen connected to it with a bunch of plastic clips. It took about 30 mins to put it up, and about just as long to take it down and put it away with each piece of pipe in the correct spot in the case. Once a few of those clips started breaking I started looking for other options.
You'll noticed that there are several screens very similar to this one on Amazon, all with collapsible aluminum frames and snap-in screens. Once of the big thing that influenced me to buy this one over most of the other models, is that it has a brace on each side which connects the upright leg to the base which I expected to add a lot of stability. I was really surprised when I got this at how lightweight it is compared to my old 120" screen, and that's probably because the frame is aluminum rather than steel. Within about 5 mins of opening up the box I had the whole frame assembled, and then it took about 2 minutes to snap the screen in place - so under 10 minutes start to finish! That's 1/3rd the time of my old screen. The screen pulls very tight, no wrinkles, and it appears to be a good quality screen surface. And those braces I mentioned earlier - they make a WORLD of difference in stability of the screen without even needing to stake it down! With my old screen if there was even a hint of a breeze, I would need to use the guy lines with stakes to keep it from swaying around. This one seems to not even need stakes, unless you're going to be expecting pretty heavy winds.
After I was done testing the screen I laid it back down, unsnapped the screen and folded it back up along the existing creases - and one pointer is to not put the buttons against the screen materiel! You'll notice that it folds of kind of unevenly, meaning one edge hangs over rather than matching up evenly, but that's intentional. It keeps the buttons from leaving imprints on your screen. After getting the screen folded up, the aluminum frame folded up in about 2 minutes. Then it all went back neatly into the back, all in all maybe 15 minutes start to finish (an extra 5 minutes compared to setup were spent carefully & neatly folding the screen back up.
All in all, I absolutely love this screen and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Pretty happy with it. Any bigger than 10' diagonal would be pretty unwieldy. This one is easy to put up and it snaps all the way around so the screen is stretched tight, unlike cheaper ones that you have to figure out where to hang and then spend time hanging it. It's pretty stable being on two legs, plus optional stakes, as opposed to a stand which I think would be more susceptible to blowing over. Since we intend to use it often, we are storing it fully assembled in the garage--just fits under the door. Some creases that I haven't bothered ironing out, but haven't noticed them while watching movies. Picture is great.
I am impressed! Great Value! frame is really nice, extra brace on the leg is a nice touch. the screen was very easy to stretch and snap into place. only problem I had was I had to retap the eye bolts that were included for the top of the screen. the threads were very bad. I wish amazon would offer a acoustically transparent screen option for this as a 2nd screen and include it in the package. then you could use the vinyl screen for outside movie watching on the stand and bring it inside and use the eye hooks and change to the acoustically transparent screen to have realistic sound.
Wow. This is amazing. So sturdy with aluminum frame. Light weight. The screen was a little tricky to snap on to the frame but it certainly makes it wrinkle free. For an outdoor screen the stakes are a must. I now see that the Tripod style would blow over with any breeze. I also bought a Vanko 3w projector, TaoTronics sound bar, and a 4K fire tv stick.
This was perfect for our son’s movie party. My husband was able to set it up on his own. The carrying case will be lovely for storing and traveling. The creases weren’t even noticeable during the movie. Just becareful on a windy day!
The best part of this projector sofar is that I was abe to disassemble it by myself (female adult), easily and quickly. And, my teen and I wereable to assemble it easily and quickly. We only used it indoors, it is sturdy and quite large. I can't wait to use it outside. Once we use it outside we will update the stars.
Screen is large, light and easy to set up. The picture quality is pretty good. For set up I would recommend two people, at least to get the frame onto the legs. The stitching makes me believe that this won't hold up forever, but for the price I am very happy and think this should last us for several years! It would be nice if they added a rear projection screen that fit this, as the one included is only forward facing.
I have used this screen both indoors and outdoors with huge success. It is versatile and a one person set up, but a chair or a stool is helpful. It has met all my needs for business presentations, and backyard events. It is sturdy and well designed.
