Terrible Off Gassing
Pros: It's cheap and the surface texture is smooth
Cons: the minute you open it you'll be overwhelmed by an awful odor ("Off Gassing") that will linger for weeks. Every entry level Da-Lite I've come in contact with is the same. It's enough to make your eyes water. You do not want to use this in a closed room. I actually hung mine in a garage for 4 days and it still smelled awful

Pros: It's huge, white, and inexpensive. I mean huge. It neatly fills a place near the bottom of the entire price/quality curve, almost as well as it fills a big empty wall. We get a great picture on it from our ~1500 lumen Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 400... with the lights out. Installation was only as hard as I made it. It came with a ~3ft. cord to tie onto the handle, unlike the other... nice not to need a chair for pulling it down, nor to go looking for your own cord.
Cons: This is slightly less reflective than the similar screen it replaced (Panoview 84" 4:3)-- there is a barely noticeable gain reduction. Just as with the Panoview, with less than 1/3 of the overhead fluorescent lights on, there is significant washing-out of the darker parts of the image. This seems to be unavoidable in our price range anyway.
Other Thoughts: We're in an office, so there's no need for cinematic reproduction. The primary reasons for running a projector are presentations and informational/educational videos. For that, this does very well. The price is actually about the same as the one we replaced-- it's just as high and now a foot wider on each side.

I'm in Awe!
Pros: I have been researching screens for quite some time now and decided to go with this one. I couldn't be happier. The screen came well packaged and was pretty easy to set up. My projector puts out a beatiful image on this screen and I love the black border frames on the outter edges. No problems on retraction whatsoever.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: The only thing I could say is to make sure you measure everything out before you purchase your screen. 106" may not sound to huge for a good-sized wall, but believe me it will take up a good chunk of any large wall.
