The Optoma 72" Manual Projector Screen is made from high quality materials to deliver impressive projection that's easy to set up.

With a matte white finish the projector screen accurately reproduces colour and black and white for a clearer picture.

It's easy to operate too. Mount it to the ceiling or wall and simply pull down the screen and hold for three seconds. The screen features a self-locking feature to keep it securely in place during meetings and presentations.

The 72" Manual Projector Screen is compatible with a wide range of projectors and is made from weaved fibre-glass which helps prevent static electricity and wrinkles in the screen. It's also fire, water and mould resistant for long-lasting durability.

Advanced screen technology helps the screen retain its shape and offers the best possible reflection.

Deliver professional presentations and impress clients or colleagues with the Optoma 72" Manual Projector Screen.

It's ok, not great. I got one on eBay for £65 for 120" which had a remote to lower and raise the screen.

72" makes me sad. That's only just bigger than high end TV territory. For comparison I'm currently projecting a ~130" on a white wall.

mind I got a 120" one thinking along those lines and it wasn't until it turned up I realised how huge it was. I'd rather have a 65" or 70" telly than a 72" projector setup

So, what if it is only just bigger than high end TV's? I currently have a screen about this size for my high end projector in my living room because I do not have the room for a large TV set. I can watch TV on my smaller set and then when I want to watch a movie I can pull down my screen and watch it on that. It makes you "sad"....get a grip!

You have space for a ~70" screen but don't have space to wall mount a TV? Also, I'd much rather have a ~70" TV than a ~70" projected image. Go to any store and you'll realise a TV can easily achieve brighter, more vibrant images. Where the projector with its worse image quality wins is in the 80"+ region. TVs that size may be more expensive than a house but a relatively cheap projector will do that and much more. That's why it makes me sad, you're taking a good thing and using it in a way that makes it look bad. Then you're getting angry about it and insulting people on the internet.

And I find the 'recommended' seating distance from the screen way too far away. I sit 7 foot from my 100 inch projector screen and that's the sweet spot for me.

not necessarily the wall I use to project onto has no sockets anywhere near it and it also is the wall that inner doors open against so a permanent tv just couldn't be mounted there but for a temporary projection wall for the occasional big film or sporting event it's perfect

Ditto - put it up over the front window so I don't even lose a wall. Discreet roller blind, perfect. The projector mounted in the middle of the room, not so discreet - but never mind!

There is no info on the material gain but I would say as it's an optoma item sold by Curry's this is nothing special. Then again, it looks fairly well constructed and I certainly don't think it's a bad deal for anyone who is in the market for one, not a massive bargain though.

My first screen 10 years ago was the same size as this, a brand new Sapphire branded one for £22delivered on ebay, this optoma one appears have better mounting brackets/system though.

I have a 3m fixed frame screen now, much better picture and has stretched synthetic material with a higher gain for my low light pioneer projector, but if you are using any optoma projector then I think any standard screen like this will do the job.

Once you have spent something on on a decent projector, and then a high quality matched screen material, you would be surprised just how little improvement upgrading these will make in comparison to the improvement that you see in the picture just from surrounding the screen with jet black material. It's mostly tricking your eyes, but you get much more vivid colours in movies when your eye is comparing the projection screen to a black void around the screen, I have a black panelled ceiling, blackout curtains either side and thick black rugs in front on the floor... also traps any reflected light which is important once you have blacked out the room completely

I like the idea of using a black out blind too, as I only occasionally use my projector for movies and found this on Ikea's website, hopefully it will be suitable: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/textiles-rugs/curtains-blinds/tupplur-block-out-roller-blind-black-art-00349123/
I would have to fix it to the ceiling and not the wall. Lots of shelves in my room which I can't take down.

Thanks mate for the link, its very helpful. I should have realised its the white black out blind I needed

No because my TV is in a corner and the wall opposite where I normally sit has a fireplace with quite a high mantle. Therefore the pull down screen comes over the front of the fireplace.

As for discussions over using a wall or a blackout blind (I have done these things in the past with other projectors) I don't see the point in doing that with a two and half grand projector!
#24
Would love to have a big projector on room. Just know it would be a hassle having PS4 and everything hooked up to it.

I reckon in future they may have TV's where the signal os sent remotly/wirelessly without the need to plug anything in at all. Least for normal tv and films.

I have a 51inch samsung plasma. But I sit around 10feet away so seems to have lost its 'big screen' appeal.
Would love an upgrade to a projector or an 75-85inch, but be too much a shame to have no where to put my plasma as too big for the bedroom.

I bought this recently and definitely worth spending that bit extra.Especially that this is a tab tensioned screen that usually cost a whole lot more money.No creases or waves and looks great with my Benq projector.

I've tried all these screens (tab tensioned screens and Elite screens) and for a similar price it's much better to build your own, I used a thin sheet of mdf screwed into an oak frame made of very narrow long pieces T and L plated together and then painted it in the popular Blackwidow screen paint which is easily made, the screen is excellent and has much better cojtrast compared to these cheap white screens, also gives an amazing quality of picture, even though I use a budget £500 projector. (still need some black border tape)

Any links to the black widow paint. I know they use Johnstone's cover plus and silver paint from a place in Ireland or something. Two links would be great tho. Ta.

You do have to make it up, I spent days reading through multiple forums and mixed a couple of samples, then settled on one which is the best quality and this mix also takes into account some recent changes in the AAA part of the mixture. The Blackwidow mix I used was: Dulux Grey Steel 2, and Auto Air Fine Aluminium Base in a 4:1 ratio.

Good price. I've just paid about £78 for a Sapphire SWS180, biggest screen I could get in my spare room. Really impressive watching a 77" image from about 2.5m away.

Has anyone spotted any good projector deals recently? I should have gone for the Benq w1080 deal posted on here in January for £399. It's currently selling for £449 in Richer Sounds.

what size screen is it? How much did the paint cost? Did you use a spray painter? I considered this option but was worried about getting a perfect surface and the paint looked like it was going to be expensive. In the end I found my 3m fixed frame 2nd hand for £250 but I was really tempted to go down the paint route, as I built the wall to size and had to pay a bit for blackboard paint anyway. The fixed frame is always going to be better than paint anyway, but for me the original price of £1000 would have been a little excessive :)

Unfortunately great deals are going to be pretty impossible I would say. All these things are priced in USD and have you seen the exchange rate recently? Did you vote for BREXIT? If you did, you can only blame yourself... I sure didn't...

Check the 2nd hand deals to be had, that's always the best bet on projectors, I have had 3 all 2nd hand and not one of them had any issues. I have a pioneer projector which is based on a JVC made one, so I would say look for a JVC one as they were sold in greater volumes. They are really good value 2nd hand in my opinion as they are some of the highest quality that were made about 5 years ago and originally cost around £3000. The catch is they don't do the fancy new 3D stuff or 4K, but if you ask me a good quality 1080p projector is close enough to real life, I don't need the screen to come out at me, terminator on 3m screen is scary enough as it is :D

I thought the USD rate wouldn't help things! I should have made the jump sooner.

Here's a complete breakdown:
2440 x 1220 x 4mm Medium Density Fibreboard FSC Mix 70% @ £18
47 x 100mm Eased Edge Treated Timber @ £20
Timco C2 Premium Woodscrew 4.0 x 30mm @ £5
Dulux Endurance+ Matt Grey Steel 2 @ £30 (Chose Endurance+ as it is durable and washable)
Auto-Air Aluminium Base Fine *2 bottles @ £20
Angle Plates Zinc-Plated 50 x 13 x 50mm @ £2
Corner Braces Zinc-Plated 77 x 77 x 16.5mm @ £2
Total cost: £97
Drill and low-nap roller not included as I already had these. (Screen was roller painted)
As you can see the most expensive parts are the paint and I still have most of the Dulux paint leftover (gave the screen 3 coats, overkill but I wanted a good quality finish).
Quality of the screen is amazing far better than what you see in the photos above.
