Vankyo Projector Screen Installation – Budget 100 Inch First Projector Screen Wall Setup for 1080P


If you plan on incorporating a video projector
into your home for gaming or movies then a projector screen is an important part of the
set up to help you get the best image from your media. In the next few shots you’re going to see
content from different projectors but I’m using the same screen in all of these shots. The screen I’m using is a really inexpensive
one from Vankyo. It’s labelled as a portable screen and you’ll
see why in just a bit. Inside the box this screen comes with mounting
hooks but I didn’t use them because I didn’t want to stick these on the wall. But you can choose to use them if you want
if you find they work for you. Now the screen is packed in a fairly small
box and comes in a zip lock bag. This is a 100-inch screen but as indicated
on the bag there are other sizes available from Vankyo also. But the screen and hooks are the only things
that come in the package so it’s quite minimal. Taking the screen out of the bag it feels
like a lump of fabric which basically that’s all it is. A large piece of white fabric with black edging
on it. There are grommets around the perimeter for
the included hooks but as you know I won’t be using those hooks. Instead I’ll be using these push pins. The reason I’m using the push pins is because
I can be more flexible on where I want the screen to be attached to the wall. The screen fabric is slightly elastic so I
wanted to be able to fasten this the best way I could while still maintaining a rectangular
shape. I think it’s actually kind of difficult
to keep all the edges and corners straight if I didn’t use the push pins. But as long as I can get the top edge straight,
then the rest is easier to attach to the wall. On the edges they pretty much fall straight
down and I don’t need to use as many pins. But I do put some pins in the grommets since
they’re good anchor points. Once both edges are secured the screen is
ready. But if your bottom edge isn’t straight you
might need a few push pins there too. I tried my best to get this flat but I just
couldn’t avoid getting ripples on parts of the screen. It’s just the way this screen is because
it’s mainly just a large piece of fabric that’s a bit elastic. If you see the manufacturer’s product page
they show the screen as a perfect flat rectangle but believe me when I say it’s a bit difficult
to get it straight and it’s almost impossible to make it look like it does on the ads. But even with the ripples in it I am still
able to enjoy watching movies with this screen. After a bit I don’t even see them since
I get immersed into the video content. And for sure it’s better than just using
a wall but this is definitely a budget projector screen. And at only around $26 it can be useful in
many situations and it won’t break the bank. If you found this video helpful please give
