The Silver Ticket fixed frame projection screen in native 16:9 format and a whopping 92" inch diagonal viewing surface. That means you have a whopping 45" H x 80" W viewing surface in FULL HDTV 1080p. The entry-level screen that truly installs much faster than any other brand we have seen. Forget about tucking the screen material into the frame. The Silver Ticket Tension rod system saves you time and frustration. Projection Screen with Matte White Material = This means real projection screen material, not a sheet. Stretchy multi-layered vinyl made specifically for movies projected onto it. Wait until you see the colors! There is no resolution lost at any angles. Mildew resistant, flame resistant, and washable with mild soap and water. How does the material connect to the frame? Each side of the material has a pocket. A rod slides through the pocket to attach to the frame. This makes sure you save time in the assembly process, but also removes any puckers or wrinkles. The rod holds the material perfectly square all around the whole frame. This pocket and rod system is hidden behind the frame so you only see the movie. Fixed Frame = You are buying a screen that is meant to mount on the wall like a large picture frame. Made out of aluminum WRAPPED not flocked with a light absorbing black velvet fabric to absorb the over projected light so you don't have to be a professional when aligning your projector. The frame is 2 3/8" wide and it does contour down to the projected image so you don't have any ugly shadow on the image area. This isn't square tubing like the other brands. The frame connects to the wall in 4 mounting points to hold it strong and square. Once you mount it, don't worry because it has horizontal slide to get it set just right. Yes that is right – horizontal adjustment. The Silver Ticket Fixed Frame is available in many different sizes and aspect ratios. 16:9 – 92", 106", 120" & 135" 16:10 – 95", 109", 123" & 139"

Very nice; it’s like using a computer screen
We had just been using a white wall for a projector. The projector itself was just a trial to see if the budget ones were worth using at home. It looked pretty good so I was really on the fence about ordering a screen for a couple hundred bucks. But I took the leap and in the end… it’s not even comparable to using a wall. It’s probably 3x or 4x better quality.
There are lots of advice on forums about how you can buy some blackout cloth and build a screen yourself. At first I thought it might be something I could handle but it soon became clear I’d be in way over my head. The thing to really consider is that with these manufactured fixed screens, it is really a tight stretch at the end to get that tension enough to provide the perfectly smooth and flat surface. You are seriously going to be pulling with all your power at times to get those last bits under the bar. And with the velvet-covered aluminum frame(which helps the color contrast) and the way you push the rods in; this is definitely the most efficient way to do it so I do think these fixed screens are actually reasonably priced.
Instructions were not in the best print quality and there were a couple situations where things weren’t the clearest but it’s not that difficult to put together. Once you unpack everything and organize it on the floor, everything will get a lot easier after a few steps as it takes shape.
When you’re pushing in the rods, it’s much easier if you stick close to the screen rather than blindly hoping it goes through each time. Took me a while to get that.
The build quality is very solid and the screen looks great. Using it with an Optoma HD131xw and have no complaints whatsoever.
On another note, if you’re stuck between two sizes, I would say go bigger. I thought 92" was going to be huge but already I can see the allure of 120" and 150". I actually would have if not for 92" being the perfect size for this particular wall with my speaker placement.
Exceptional quality with a low price tag.
Nice for the price
Absolutely the best screen I have seen!
The quality is fantastic!
Assembles well, very nice quality considering price.
If you are accustomed to simple DIYs and if you can assemble IKEA furnitures with no problem, this is going to be dead easy.
Manuals won’t be really necessary.
Only difficult part was inserting vertical beam at the centre at last stage.
Screen clip seems to get in the way, so I wasn’t able to insert vertical beam in perfect centre, rather 4:6 ratio, but it should do its job.
Also, stretching out screens to fit into last 3~4 clips can be quite challenging, you will need some hand/finger strength.
As my pictures show, all parts fit very well.
All the brackets, drivers, clips etc are very well synchronised.
92″ will be big enough for most people. It is like four set of 45 inch TV.
I haven’t put the screen on the wall yet, I will finish setting tomorrow.
By looking at the screen, only downside is that each corner is not fully stretched out, and hence little shade in each corner.
I guess this can be improved by little bit of DIY, or it will get better over time.
Will update after some use.
As for now, very highly recommended.
Would definitely purchase again. Was a perfect fit for my HD projector.
Works well in my setup
Using it with my Sony VPL-VW30ES. It does it’s job. If I had room, I would have order the bigger one.
