  The whole thing goes up really easy. Or so it looks. I supervised.  Roll Eyes Anyway, the most time consuming thing was finding a level spot on our lawn and doing the tie downs. If one side was cinched too tight it would pull the outer ring either left/right, front/back which would cause the screen to wrinkle.
  I know everyone is concerned about the fan noise, myself included. When we were packing up and the end of the night I thought to myself " O crap I wanted to pay attention to the fan noise so I could compare it to something". I guess the fact that I didnt notice it and completly forgot about it is good enough for me. We dont have nice speakers either. We use the GE home theater in a box $129.00 version from WM.
  Our projector is a Dell 2200MP 1200 Lumens.
   Our previous screens were a roll down shade stapled to 2x4's and a sheet of unpainted Parkland Plastic. This is a huge step up for us and we are very pleased.
The picture was nice and bright. Any blurr is my camera. I dont know how you guys get a good screen shot. Ask any questions and I'll try to answer or I'll ask Hubby.

Looks great, Marye!

Thanks for posting pics and for your feedback on the fan. 

Good screen pics are a little tricky.  You almost need a tripod and longish exposure but yours look good if you were just snapping away.  Oh, and you need to pause the video.  It's probably easier with a nice bright projector.  Yours came out pretty nice!

Glad to hear you're happy with the screen!

Marye:

Thanks for posting, a few questions:

1.  Does there appear to be an easy way to elevate the screen for a larger crowd? [Ie, putting it on top of two banquet tables lined up side by side or another means to raise the screen about 2ft-30 inches].

2.  What did you think of the build quality - does it feel like a tank or like a front yard inflatable you'll feel lucky to have for 2 summers worth of films?

3.  How long was your build/tear down time from bag to screen to bag?

4.  Did the screen measure as advertised?

Thanks for any info you can provide!  Tx5

Hey T,

  1. Hubby says, you should be able to put it on anything as long as its flat to elevate it up. The only thing is that you might have to extend the tie downs or use your own rope.

  2.  The ring feels like its heavy duty rip stop nylon. The screen is heavy duty with some sort of black backing. Concidering that its brought in and not left to the elements I am hoping to have mine for a good long time.

  3.  Start to finish was 20-30 minutes. Messing with the positioning and the tie downs was a pain. A drive way or nice flat mowed lawn would be way easy. Our yard is kinda lumpy!
         To take it down was only like 10-15 minutes.

   4.  We were too busy trimming tree branches out of the way to measure  Grin.  Looks about right though. Here is a visual. John (hubby) is 6'2". Austin is 4'4".

Marye -

Excellent posts and pics! This is starting to make the DIY screens/frames look less inviting all the time!

That Austin is a lucky dude.

Tell him his picture is on the front of the website now!

Have fun, and thanks for your review and pics of the screen.

Thank you for your imput about the screen.

Are you happy with the speaker system you have? Does it do good outside?

Are you happy with the Dell projector and what do you use for your multi-media (dvd player, laptop). Thanks, Jewell
