Now Epson Duet 80 is one of the top-of-the-line projector screen available in the market and for good reason. It is a an ultra portable projector screen that is rugged enough to be put to heavy use and its projection quality on the screen is stunning to say the least. While it may seem small @ 80 inches compared to the Homegear 120” or the Best Choice 119” but we all know we can sacrifice a little screen area for a better video or gaming quality on the screen. It is suitable for both 16:9 widescreen viewing experience or 4:3 standard resolution but the screen size varies. It gets reduced to just 65” for the 4:3 option and even though the picture quality is great, it might not fit your viewing needs. If you want to paste it to the wall or the ceiling, it is more than enough for your viewing needs but the problem arises with the tripod. The three-legged iconic support for a projector screen is just 33 inches above the ground here in its maximum position so if you are arranging a movie screening outside or any other lecture or gaming con, it will be difficult to involve a room full of people just because of the low height. I will recommend to use it on a wall since it is easy to set up and comes with a wall bracket just for this purpose.
Now compared to its cheaper competitors, the video quality is sharp and much more detailed giving a much better performance benchmark, in fact one of the best in the category. Now I would recommend it to use for gaming experience more than its home theatre option since it has a well-known better performance in the standard gaming resolution. The tripod is back in this design and thus it can be set up almost anywhere you want to take it. Here the small size of the screen pay dividends for us so that we can wrap it up in its metal frame and take it anywhere in the trunk of our car. The screen material is pretty tough and it is notably heavier than the other screens out there thus being a pro and a con at the same time. It is a sturdier experience overall but the extra effort is also needed to move it.
An overwhelming number of customers have given at a generous rating with particular reference in store for its standard video projecting experience than the widescreen theatre one. Bad reviews are less than 6% and most of them involve faulty/late deliveries and damaged product being delivered that can be claimed from the parent company at Amazon. Overall, amazing projection screen this one.
