Don't know which one to go for, I'm assuming coz the Draper is more expensive that it's better? :confused: could be wrong though. Any thoughts?

7 foot Draper Luma, £230
7 foot DRH Slimline, £158

So £70 ish difference.

Yep, I'd like to know as well.

Anyone used Premier Presentation who advertise mainly on eBay?

2m screen from them would be about £100.

Many thanks for any help/response.

The impression I have formed from posts on the forum is that people prefer DRH's to Drapers.

I got a pull down DRH Slimline and it is very good. Probably the only gripe I have with it, is that it was quite tricky to put up. Plus it would be nice if the screen housing was black!

the DRH slimline is a very good choice.

It does take a bit of practise pulling up and down (the advice from DRH) was not to be to gentle with it.

DRH SLIMLINE

It's a very fine screen for the money albeit that is does need a bit of rough to retract it....well pleased

Just fitted a DRH screen today and cant get it to go back into the housing - I have pulled the screen down to its maximum drop and still cant get it to retract - any tips on getting it back into the casing. Ive tried pulling it at all angles using reasonable force to no avail.

Ive just sold my draper luma 106" screen as it would fit between the purlins beams in my loft..I opted for a smaller DRH slimline and Im not impressed :(
The DRH feels very cheap indeed compared to the draper...it also exhibits some screen curl at the edges where the draper did not.


If I had the option again Id definately go for the draper :rolleyes:

Hi there Mr Screen

What's all this I hear about having to yank the thing damn hard to get it go back up :D . Your screen certainly seems competively priced compared to the Draper and that's always welcome. Are there any plans to sort out this common problem with the retraction of the screen back into the casing?

hello Clint
thats just not true,you dont need to yank it all you have to do is give it a sharp jerk down and follow up straight away there are two ratchets on the spring and if you go to slow on the way up the ratchet locks up, all the screens are tested before they go out,i am surprised how many people have trouble with them.

Hi Mr Screen.
I bought it a couple of weeks ago and have only just put it up in my loft. The draper just seemed to be made from thicker screen material and a stronger casing.
I suppose I have to take into account the £30-£40 price difference but the slight screen curl is a little annoying. I havent tried my projector on the screen as yet but hope the picture will be just as good as with the draper.

(I also found the mechanism much trickier to retract the screen than the with the draper)

Mr Screen

I suppose the best way is to contact a moderator to find out the process.

7ft 16:9 sounds good to me :D .

All the best
Clint.

Oh and don't forget to make it an unbelievable offer so the members can't refuse ;) .
