Could anyone tell me the quality etc of these screens particually an electric version 80" width 16:9
Drop a pm to Ian_Guinan as I believe he has one.
I've got an 80" Grandview electric with remote purchased from www.direkt2u.co.uk .
am very pleased with the quality of the screen material, construction of the case and the smoothness of the Somfy electric motor. I was able to specify a custom level of drop, and even then the screen arrived within 2 weeks.
I've also had excellent service from Direkt2u who have, without prompting, offered to replace my screen immediately without question after I'd noticed a very slight curl on one edge.
can you tell me if the screen has a blackout lining or anything to prevent light shining thru back as i plan to install screen in front of windows - behind curtains - as the only electric screen i have seen was flimsy.
I've got the screen in front of a bay window, and the material is thick enough to block out any light.
Sorry to piggy back off this thread..
You specified a custom level of drop. So I take it there is no way to configure the screen to only come down a certain amount?
The reason I ask is that at some point in the future I will want to replace my tv with a plasma which means I could then have the screen come down lower (with the plasma hidden behind).
You can configure it to stop at any height, but it won't come down any lower than the length of the material!
What I meant was that I'd ordered an extra 85cm of black material above and beyond the 16:9 screen. Allows me to have to screen mounted on the high ceiling.
Sounds like it could work for you.
After re-reading my post I realized I was not 100% clear.
What I meant to confirm was that it can come down to a configurable level (which you have confirmed). But on top of that you would not need to stop it manually at that level.
Ie I could press the 'down' key on the remote (I plan on getting the IR kit as well) and the screen would only drop to the level that I had configured....
Do you know if this is possible?
Sorry for not being clear.
Yes..I can confirm there is such an adjustment (though I haven't tried it) i.e. you can adjust both the end stop and the upper limit.
