The projector I had up and running isn't on Dooyoo currently, though I hope to suggest it in the near future. The main reason I decided on a projector over an LCD or Plasma screen was because of the significant price difference they adhere. Mine cost around £300 for a device which could imprint (onto the Optoma screen above) a High Definition image up to 100 inches diagonal - larger than any television I have encountered (..and if that kind of TV did exist it would be priced in the thousands). The simple fact is, projectors are a value for money alternative not many people even consider - they are a reliable source of media player which can be linked to television, games consoles, computers, portable devices... anything.
This screen cost a similar amount to the the project I purchased, but really it is designed for a much more expensive model. This is an extremely high quality screen with a motorised mechanism which enables it to efficiently role up into the the cylinder hood above. The entire product weighs approximately 12.2 KG, it has a surface screen area of 203 cm x 152 cm which adopts an aspect ratio of 4:3 - standard wide screen format. This means that for the projectors beam to cover the entire screen it too needs to be a wide format device.
The screens hood is made from high quality aluminium, within which the tubular motors operate with low noise pollution, sleekly and stably extending and de-extending the screen in one solid motion. The whole operation is done via a button system which is easy and straight forward to use - located on the side of the screen hood, this is also where the power cable socket is found. It is extremely reliable, and after over 6-months of almost daily usage I have had not one single issue with the operation of the product.
The screen is mounted to any secure wall via one of the best systems on the market. It is a 'floating L-bracket design' which allows the screen to be horizontally adjusted to suit the positioning of the projector. This flexibility is crucial when setting up the two connective products if they are to work in perfect unison.
The only issue I have with this product is the fact you have to have it plugged in all the time, or you have to go to the hassle of plugging it in every time you want to use it - quite irritating. Other than that this is a sensational purchase, a very high quality product which although costs great expense, still has good value.
A very smart chap this one!, I like the Glossy housing, which has been nicely rounded off. It is not too important that the screen is motorized or not to me, but the main thing with these screens is ability to reflect light effectively. The coating on the panaview is able to achieve 180 degrees of perfectly bright high contrast image. When I walk into the room from the screen's side, I am always impressed by the brightness of colour coming off the side as well as in front. So pretty much an all round good screen. There is the inevitable side curl that you would get with just about all projector screens, but this is minimal with the panaview, and not a let down. The black border is ample size to allow for any slight offset image spilling or out of frame effect, but not too large to look ugly. I bought this mainly for it's looks, but the added motorized system is a another bonus, that I haven't seen repeated much in other screens on the market. As with all remote controls, when not in use, keep it sat on the device it communicates with, obviously the platform is a bit high with this, so I keep it on top of the projector. The only slight draw back might be with the high gloss of the underside of the white housing that reflects quite strongly the top part of a projected image, like a reflection off a lake, but not something to quibble over, as the good looks compensates for that!
