106-inch, 16:9 Matte White Fabric Motorized Projection Screen
Give yourself the gift of a true Home Theater system with this Motorized Projection Screen from Monoprice!
This screen is made from a high-quality four-layer fabric. The surface layer is embossed with PVC microdots, which produces a 1.0 gain across an extra wide 160 degree viewing angle. The second layer is made of PVC, followed by a fiberglass layer, and another PVC layer to complete the screen. The result is a smooth screen surface with a stretch rate of less than 1%. By comparison, traditional chemical treated fabric screens have stretch rates as high as 33%!
The screen can be mounted on the ceiling or on a wall. It is raised and lowered using a Somfy motor with an RF remote control. Somfy is the leading manufacturer of specialty motors, which provide ultra-smooth, silent operation and are known for their durability and long life. The screen measures 106 diagonal inches and is sized for a 16:9 aspect ratio. The package includes hardware to mount the screen to a wall.

I learnt how to adjust the drop and the retraction limit (manual asks to contact manufacturer to adjust), here is how to do it: Face the screen, on the left corner of the screen you will find two yellow sockets (on the inside). The top one adjusts the drop limit and the bottom one adjusts the retraction limit. Note: If you adjust the drop limit you have to adjust the retraction limit otherwise you may damage the motor. Using the yellow wand that came with the projector (or use the bit of a phillips screwdriver) turn the drop limit socket (this will need some deft finger play and patience). By trial and error keep dropping the screen till the desired height is achieved. Next adjust the retraction limit by turning the socket for it (lower one) till the screen retraction stops just before hitting the frame. Note: One way to tell if the retraction limit is not sufficient is that the screen will retract and stop with a thump meaning that the motor is not stopping on its own. When properly adjusts the screen will retract and stop with a smooth click meaning the motor stopped by itself rather than when the screen could not be retracted anymore (thump sound).
Hope this helps, overall very pleased with the screen.
PROS: Good price, relatively easy install, works well so far.
CONS: No trigger input. Does not connect to Harmony remote.
PROS: Huge Screen, easy to install, looks great with the Epson 8350
CONS: Shipping (UPS freight sucks) and the remote doesn't work
The first two of my screen purchases arrived with the rest of the order (i.e. Monoprice shipped the order, along with the screen, via UPS freight), however the latest one was shipped standard UPS and the screen separated and shipped via UPS freight individually.
So this means that not only do you now have to pay additionally for the shipping of the screen ($150 in my case, to Washington State), but you'll end up paying separate brokerage fees because they're now splitting the shipments up!
PROS: Great screen, mounts nicely, functions without issue, great in a bright room, if matched with a capable projector.
CONS: Watch out for shipping costs item now ships separately from the rest of your order.
The remote is great, allowing for Up, Down, Stop, and minor adjust up and down. I will say that the minor adjust would be better if it was more granular, but it is certainly acceptable.
I would absolutely buy another one of these if there was a room that could use it.
All I needed was a pull down, basic screen that did the job well, but the price was so good on the motorized screen, I had to go for it. I had to wire my ceiling for power, which was a pain. But, it paid off in coolness-factor! The 106 inch screen was perfect size for my 400 sq. ft. room... not too big or too small.
The screen works very well, and is not too noisy or clunky. I like the black color, because it seems classier to me. The contrast is great if I don't have too much ambient light, but that's expected with projection. I had some friends over, and they were amazed. The only thing is... the screen has an almost overbearing plastic smell for a couple of weeks. I had to leave it open and ventilate the room before passing out. It's OK now.
The other thing, instructions aren't the greatest, and I ended up using my own hardware. It's heavy, so get someone handy who can safely mount it. It definitely needs to go into studs/wood I wouldn't dare use even the beefiest dry wall mounts.
I'm really happy with it... and glad I didn't have to spend $1,000 to enjoy a professional screen!
PROS: Easy install.
Super quiet motor.
CONS: Size of packaging makes it freight for UPS, so it doesn't come on day promised.
