Elite Screens Kestrel 80” Diagonal Floor Rising Electric Projection Screen
Placing the Kestrel in front of my wall-mounted Carada Brilliant White screen for comparison, I fired up my Epson 8500UB and projected a full screen image. The Kestrel did a fine job with a variety of Blu-ray material, both movies and test disks. The CineWhite screen material had a very natural appearance and under normal viewing the slight leaning toward blue was not noticeable. Overall, the Kestrel screen did not noticeably appear to favor any particular color. There was no noticeable grain or other visible indication of the screen surface and the few aforementioned waves one the top right edge of the screen surface were a non-factor.
The Kestrel displayed a bright, clean image from any normal viewing distance. As you would expect from what is essentially a neutral gain screen, there is no hot-spotting and the viewing angle was quite wide. I’m not sure you’d want to watch it at the extremes of its claimed 160 degree viewing angle, but it’s just fine at the normal limits of 120 degrees.
