Elite Screens QuickStand Review Conclusion
Fine. So How's It Look?
The CineWhite material was fantastic. Colors were well-represented and I was even able to get a very nice calibration off this screen—a fact that let me know you can use it for higher viewing standards and still benefit from the added portability. The screen did have some of the expected wrinkles in it from the manufacturer and shipping, however the stretching process made short work of them in about 30 minutes or so (at least to the point where it was unnoticeable). This is the material likely to be shipped and used by most with this screen, and its a good material that will last a long time. (You can even clean it!)
While it made my Superbowl party something special, I also appreciated how easily and quickly it integrated into a family movie night at the local family life center. When you can set up a projector screen in just a matter of minutes and comfortably display a Blu-ray to over 150 people, that's a product that is going to be very useful. The QuickStand is just that. Even better, it folded back down into its case in the same record time, letting us clear the floor and put everything away just as if it had never been there.
Portability, flexibility and quality all rolled into one is a good thing. If you need a portable solution that's dirt cheap, you can find alternatives—but most of those pull up out of a roller and they curl at the edges. If you want or need a truly flat screen and a screen with much better contrast, then the QuickStand is a solution you really need to investigate. For under $1000 you can get a 100" screen that is durable and which you can take with you easily and quickly. I don't know that I can do a better job at recommending it than to simply say this is one of the best and most affordable quality portable screen solutions I've found on the market.
