    I have just bought and fitted an Ellie Advantage 250. Screen brightness is excellent & the electric motor fairly quiet. My problem is that there is 7 equally spaced vertical lines in the screen. To my eye they are slight creases as if the material was folded before manufacture.

    I will give it a couple of days to see if they drop out, if not its back to screensuk. Has anyone else had experience of this? :(

    Horizontal creases are signs of the material rolling over itself where it joins the central drum. This causes a crease effect and as the thing rols up more it creases very slightly further apart. It will not go away. Better quality screens have different costruction techniques that give better image quality

    That sounds reasonable, but my lines are vertical? It must surely be pre manufacture.

    Screensuk have now swapped out this screen for a new one. Its now 100% perfect. I can highly recommend both screens uk & this screen. Top notch.
