Projector screens are perfect tools to have at home or the office since they serve both to work and make presentations, as well as having fun watching movies or playing HD video games at home. However, some of our readers have told us that they have not done so well with these products and we wanted to know why.
One of them, Carlos, explained to us that the one that was bought a few months ago began to present wrinkles on the sides and that, when finished using it, it was somewhat complicated to rewind it because the electrical mechanism was not very efficient, say. It was also quite noisy, as he told us.
In addition, another user regretted having bought the cheapest one because it did not even bring a good quality case to protect the screen while it was not in use. Clearly it ended up dusty and the metal parts rusted.
What is the best projector screen?
So we wanted to help our readers and decided to find the best on the market. The first thing we did was look at the size of the space where you plan to place the projector. This will tell if it will be an electric or manual model, if you want a larger screen or if you prefer a smaller, portable model. In this case, there are options that you do not have to fix to the ceiling or wall and are more compact and versatile.
Then we look at more technical aspects such as the gain, which is usually 1.0 and has to do with the brightness that the product is capable of reflecting. A higher value translates into brighter images. The aspect ratio is usually 16: 9 or 2.35: 1 for home and theater fans; if the device is tensioned; if it is motorized and, of course, if it is economical.
