Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Product
I am a youth pastor and have all kinds of outdoor movie nights at my house. We used to just hang up a giant sheet for a screen but have made upgrades each year to our setup. This screen is great. It is not commercial quality... but the price is not either! I was satisfied with everything and expect it to last me for a few years. I have already used it three times with no problems at all. It held up well in a little breeze also (which my sheet never did!). This is a must have for outdoor events. It is a piece of cake to set up and take down. I would recommend a plastic container to store it in as opposed to the original bag.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Upstate Ok product for the price
I own a rental company and purchased this to do movie nights for apartment complexes, special events at restaurants and birthdays in the back yard. The first line in the instruction manual states: "Not recommended for outdoor use." Really!! We had to modify how we would tie down the screen and even how to support the screen. The fans are not quite strong enough to fully blow up the screen tightly. We added side supports to the screen. We also need to tie down the screen poolside and with no bottom tie down points made it some what difficult.
With all this said, for the price this is a good product. I would like to see the screen with bottom tie straps and a larger fan and increase the cost accordingly. $50.00 would make a significant improvement to the product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Junebug70 Made the 1st Outdoor Movie Night @ "June's Cineplex 1" a huge hit
The size & ease of use of this product has gotten it put on it my very short "Best Purchases Ever" list. I coupled it with an Epson 8350 projector & a single powered Gemini GVX-SUB18P sub woofer & a single powered Gemini RS-12. Placing the speakers directly behind the screen definitely added to the experience & made a stereo setup unnecessary. The clarity from the blu-ray through the projector on the screen was excellent. It has been used to entertain groups of 20-50 with no problems of clear viewing. I was worried about getting the screen back in the provided carry bag when I was done, but discovered that putting the fans in 1st at either end of the bag with the feet facing towards the center & then folding the rest of the screen in the empty center worked great. Removing as much air as possible beforehand is a given. The only issue I have is that I was unable to discern a dot gain for the screen itself prior to purchase on my own or with the help of a cust. service agent. I discovered the cost, clarity & quick setup made it more than worth the risk. Most memorable comment by one guest was "June, that's gangsta!" Which I decided to take as the highest compliment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BiggSimm Excellent to make the neighbors jealous
It works great. Puts away easy and is easy to install. I would like to be able to buy replacement parts for clips. Maybe there could also be a better or different way to secure the fans. The screws through the little holes is a little annoying.
For the price of the screen you dont feel so bad going overboard with the projector and sound system. I like it because once you get a system down you can take it anywhere there is electricity and have a nice evening of movies and fun.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ballen Wonderful! We LOVE it!!
We have used this twice and both times it's been wonderful! What a statement this thing makes in the yard. It's huge. My husband always says movies look better on the big screen and I have to say I beleive him now. We haven't had any problems with it inflating. There are a few wrinkles in the screen but are not even noticeable when the movie is playing. This was worth every penny! I don't have any complaints about this item other than it's going to be impossible to fit into the carry bag that's provided. You will likely need a big tote to store it in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ukswrath Perfect, except...
I really wanted to give this item 5 stars but couldn't. The setup is relatively quick and easy and the screen was a perfect size for my needs. The downer was the noise of the blowers needed to inflate the screen support. My back yard is perfect for movie nights except for having to watch the noise level being considerate to my neighbors, therein lies the problem. To overcome the noise of the blowers I have to raise the stereo volume to a point where it annoys my neighbors. I'm not saying this product has a major downfall, it just didn't work for me. On a positive note I made a frame from 1-3/4" PVC pipe ($40,hint hint), strapped the original screen to it and using the origional tie downs stood it up and WALA! I had a big screen with no noise.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe2you Nice consumer grade unit. I own several commercial grade units and was looking for something simple & inexpensive to suit my budget minded customers. This is it. Inflates quickly and is easily moved into position before the tie downs are added. The only negative I have is the stakes, would have liked to see something other than hammer-in but will live with what we have.
Hint for owners:
I did take some heat-shrink tubing and slip it over the two fan connectors and shrank them in place because the fans kept coming unplugged.
