There’s no better way to see a movie than at the cinema…
Except for the expensive tickets, difficult showing times, noisy audience and snacks so pricey they could bankrupt you. That’s why so many folks are opting for a home projector screen.
But with the projector market being as flooded as a midnight showing of a new Star Wars film, it can be tough to know which model is right for you.
That’s why we’ve created this list to help you find the best home projector screen in 2017. In this post, we’re going to cover a few size and price options. This way, you can find the perfect match for your home theater.
Let’s get to it!
Best Small Projector Screen: Elite Screen Sable Frame B2 92-Inch
If you don’t have a lot of space for your home theater (nothing wrong with a cozy experience) then this 92-inch Elite Screen may be just what you’re looking for.
This projector can be hung on your wall just like a painting or a poster. This is thanks to the tough but light aluminum frame.
It may be the smallest screen on the list, but don’t think that means it’s lacking quality. The 160-degree viewing angle and dense black finish absorb projector overshoot. This allows the movie to ‘pop out’ with even greater clarity.
The Sable Frame B2 is a no-nonsense, low-maintenance screen. Its mildew resistant material is easy to clean. Plus, it doesn’t crease up. This keeps your movie-viewing experience smooth and simple.
Even better, it comes with a 2-year warranty to give you peace of mind. It feels good knowing that if something were to go wrong, Elite Screen has got your back.
Best Medium-Size Projector Screen: Silver Ticket 100-Inch Screen
We think that this is one of the best value screens on the market in 2017. The features and the size don’t match the price tag! This allows you to to get a good quality screen without breaking the bank. The Silver Ticket 100-Inch Screen is perfect for those of you who have medium-sized walls available for a projector screen.
Plus, the flame resistant material the screen is made from makes it extra safe.
One of the drawbacks for the price is that once built it can’t be rolled up for storage. However, this is not a big deal for most of you who want to make a screen a permanent fixture. Still, it is an important thing to point out. Not only is the Silver Ticket great for home movie theaters, but it would be a good option for an office. This is due to its high quality and low price – an affordable option to spruce up those meetings.
As well as a setup guide, Silver Ticket has also produced a series of informative video guides for their customers. You can refer to it at any time.
They also offer an option for professional installation available for purchase through Amazon if it is required.
Best Large Projector Screen: Elite Screens 135-Inch ezFrame
This is without a doubt one of the best screens on the market.
Capable of 16:9 4k Ultra HD and Active 3D video this will give you that stellar quality video we all go to the movies for. The material of the screen allows for sound to travel through properly. This means that it’s a good fit if you have a behind-the-screen speaker system.
This massive 135-inch screen will give you the larger-than-life experience you are after.
You will pay top dollar for this product, but Elite Screen is one of the biggest and best names in the market. Besides, in this case, you really do get what you pay for.
Best Outdoor Screen: Airblown 39121-32 123 x 77-Inch
Outdoor screens are great for block parties, family barbecues, community events or just those late summer nights.
Forget a drive-through movie, why not set up the Airblown outdoor screen in your back garden?
This screen comes with a full package including:
- A storage bag
- Easy setup instructions
Our favorite thing about the Airblown is that it is self-inflating, making the whole experience very seamless.
Plus, with free shipping and an affordable price, you may actually end up saving money on a summers’-worth of family movie tickets.
Best Portable Projector Screen: Pyle PRJTP Video Screen
The Pyle PRJTP is a tripod projector that can be easily packed up and moved around. This makes it a great solution if you are looking for something portable. You even have further options when it comes to size, as it is available in a 40 or 50-inch version.
We can see the PRJTP being used best in schools, offices or by people who are on the road a lot.
Best Storable Screen: Vivo 100-Inch
Let’s face it, one of the biggest things holding people back from owning a home theater is that they don’t have space for one.
That’s why we love the Vivo 100-Inch.
This motorized screen can be controlled via remote control to store itself when not in use. This function can also be used to set how big you want the screen to be, all from the comfort of a couch (or boardroom chair.)
The electric motor is quiet and built to last. In fact, the screen itself is durable. Also, like the others on the list can be easily cleaned with some soap and water. With a 100-inch screen, this product will be big enough to match most of your projecting needs. It is also small enough to not have to knock down a wall to install it.
Thanks to its storage options you can easily install it in a place with multi-purpose. This is a great compromise if you are still negotiating a way to install a home theater…
