The Luma projection screen brand has become quite popular among projector
users. In particular the Draper Luma projection screens are renowned for
their price-to-quality. In this article I will go into the pros and cons of
this line of projection screens.
What Is So Great About Draper Luma Projection Screens?
As I stated above the brand has a great price-to-quality ratio. Price is
certainly the key advantage of this brand, as in some cases it can even
present a savings above creating your own projector screen. At the top end
a Draper Luma can run around 500 dollars, and at the bottom end even less
than 100 dollars. This is certainly a great savings above a premium
electric projection screen which can easily run in thousands of dollars.
There are some who swear by the sturdiness of the Draper Luma brand. Some
owners of this brand claim they still retract well after several years of
use. The Draper projection screen company is known for producing long
lasting screens, and typically provides a 12 month warranty with Luma
Another advantage to consider of Draper screens vs. DIY screens is that
they are cleanable. A material such as seamless paper or with screen paint
will be difficult to clean and re-use. This is definitely something to
consider if you are considering a Luma instead of creating your own.
What Should I Look Out For When Buying A Draper Luma Projection Screen?
The black border around many projector screens can enhance the quality of
the picture. Some Draper Luma screens do not have a black border, but
simply have a black metal bar at the bottom of the viewing area. Ideally
there would be a black light-absorbing fabric surrounding the viewing area
on all edges so be sure to consider this when you go to buy a projection
Something else to watch out for is that you get the right ratio for your
projector. The Draper Luma screens come in different ratios, for a HD
projector you will want a 16:9 screen ratio. Otherwise, you will have to
deal with wasted space on the viewing area which does not make for a good
home theater screen.
Another thing to worry about with manual projector screens such as the
Draper Luma is to keep the screen flat. If you are too rough when pulling
the screen out, or rolling it is pack it is possible that eventually it
will lose planarity, and possibly crease. This really is not a fault of the
projector screen material, but of most manual projector screens that are
not tensioned. You will need to decide if the cost savings vs. a motorized
projection screen make it worthwhile.
