    Hi there

    After getting my new AE700, I seem to notice the creases more on my Draper Luma - so panning scenes are getting annoying to me and I can't enjoy a film.

    Do electric screens have a flatter screen area v. manual pull down - as you don't have to stretch them pulling them up/down ?

    Am running a 60" screen - any recommendations on a replacement ?

    Looking at the OWL offering at the moment.

    Is tab-tensioned worth going for ?

    Many thanks

    Chris

    Generaly the only way to get a flat screen is to have a tab tensioned or fixed frame screen. Ordinary pull down or electric (non TT) tend to ripple to some degree. I think someone once mentioned a sceen that was made form a different material and that didn't ripple, but I can't remember the details now.

    Tab-tensioned certainly seems to do the job. I've only had mine running for a few weeks but I would never go back to free hanging again. Even my mates who think I'm insane spending money on HC stuff have all commented on the difference.

    Never been in a position to go for a fixed screen but that may be a cheaper alternative.
