    I am thinking of changing my screen. I currently have a Draper Luma 8' 16:9. Its 3 months old, what do you think I should sell it for.

    I will obviously need a replacement. Concidering Owl Electric. Anyone here got experience of this screen and where to buy.

    Cheers

    I've got an 8ft owl electric called the Othello which I got from Gordon for a decent price, I'm chuffed to bits with it, there is minimal edge curl which becomes completely unnoticable with a darkened room and a projected image, even after the 5 months mine has now been up.

    I take it your Draper is a pull down, I have a mate that may be interested if your considering an upgrade, depending on price of course.

    I know its perhaps a bit low but my mate would take it off your hands for £150. Is it perfect or is it rippled?

    The offer sound reasonable but the buyer would need to cover P+P.

    I am not ready to sell yet as i am still in discussion with Gordon and Eric re replacement

    The ripples are as per most 2 x 45 degree from center left and right to center bottom
