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 IR (infrared) 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.

PROS: Design of the mounting bracket makes mounting the screen a breeze. The screen body has a good look and feel to it. Matte white fabric makes images brighter. Packaging was excellent.
CONS: Motor is a little loud.
PROS: Nice looking sturdy aluminum case with clever adjustable mounting points that fit into an extruded channel the entire length. This enables you to mount the screen in the exact center of a wall no matter where the studs are. Not even the high end screen makers could figure this out.
CONS: Motor is a little noisy, but wasn't an issue in the night club where I installed this.
Screen material is fairly cheesy but well within price point and the audience won't notice.
Although subdued, the Monoprice logo is prominently displayed on more and more of their products, which takes away from some of the magic. Unfortunately, until the Chinese start producing something that they actually invented (besides gunpowder), instead of making knock-offs of everything, the logo is associated with cheapness.
I did find it difficult to locate the up/down screws, but finally found it.
Also I thought I ordered the RF version, but instead got the IR one. Doesn't work as well in my application, but that's my fault.
Beware: if you loose the remote (as I did), Monoprice does not keep them in stock as their own line item. These IR remotes are also not supported by ANY universal remote I could find, and Monoprice Customer Service was completely unresponsive when I emailed them asking for the information required to incorporate this product into a service such as Logitech has.
PROS: Works as advertised, nice image
CONS: hard to find the up / down adjustments
the auto detect cable is 2.5mm, NOT 3.5mm! all of my av equipment has the 3.5mm receptacle
the port on the side is not RJ45, but maybe RJ11. I was hoping for something more user friendly like an html application that could be accessed by other programs
