10 Best 100 Inch Home Theatre Screen for 2019

April 2019

An essential part of any home cinema setup is the screen. No matter how much you spend on a projector, if you scrimp on the screen, you’ll notice.

 

Luckily you have three options to consider.

 

Projector-friendly paint: you can paint a section of a wall. Our recommendation is Dulux Light & Space Matt Emulsion Paint – Absolute White, which is available from most hardware stores. You’ll need at least 2 or 3 coats to create a suitable area. However, you need a really flat wall as bumps will distort the picture and lead to a less than ideal viewing experience.

 

Matte vinyl fabric: You can either choose from a pre-built screen or buy fabric and build a frame yourself. It’s important to choose a fabric with a low gain rating and the right viewing angle.

 

Pull-down: Exactly like the ones you had in school! These are great if you don’t have a dedicated media room or space for a permanent screen but still want a superior viewing experience.

 

Our list focuses on pre-made fabric and pull-down 100 inch home theatre screens. We’ve rounded up a range of options for you.

Description

Costing £32.99 from Amazon, NIERBO 100 Inch Projector Screen is a pre-made screen, which easily attaches to frame or wall.

 

The screen displays in a 16:9 aspect ratio and has a fairly high 1.5 gain.

 

On first opening the package, you’ll discover NIERBO has used a new packaging method, which prevents wrinkles.

 

NIERBO have manufactured this screen from High-quality PVC. The thick white front reflects light well. Wheres the black coloured back, stops the light being passed through.

 

These combined means the projected image is brighter with more brilliant colours.

 

This home theatre screen is both HD and 3D compatible, which is great if you have a Blu-ray player with 3D software.

 

The included magic tape make it’s easy to install the screen to a wall. If you don’t mind DIY, then you can also build your own frame.

 

Finally, this product comes with a lifetime warranty.

 

Pros

  • Excellent Projection image quality
  • Viewing angles are good
  • Unique packaging ensuring no wrinkles

 

Cons

  • The velcro strips are weak
  • Beware of the sticky side – it’s strong enough to remove plaster!

 

Conclusion

At a penny shy of £33, the NIERBO 100 Inch Projector Screen is great value for money.

 

We like the packaging and the warranty. NIERBO seems to offer superb support.

 

The only downside seems to be the installation kit. Some users have reported that the velcro is quite weak and needs to be constantly adjusted. So if you do want to use velcro, buy some of better quality.

 

If you plan to build a frame, use screws to hold the screen in place, rather than velcro.

 

Overall the screen produces a superb image at the standard 16:9 ratio with good viewing angles. 8/10.

On top of this frame is a triple layer PVC screen. The screen surface layer is finished in embossed CineWhite, which has a gain of 1.1. This provides a superior viewing experience across all media formats, including 4k Ultra HD and 3D.

If you’re looking to upgrade from your first screen or aiming to invest in the best, then yes, it’s worth the £166.79. If you’re just starting on your home cinema journey or want a screen for a camper then it’s worth looking at others on the list.

 

With that said, the only thing that lets this screen down is its assembly. You really need two of you and a large helping of patience! So be ready to experience some frustration.

 

Overall, it’s a well-designed home theatre screen using superior material. 9/10

Pros

  • Made from polyester
  • Comes with hooks and stickers for easy install

Cons

  • Stickers aren’t strong enough to support screen

 

Conclusion

With quite a mixed bag of reviews, we’re not quite sure what to make of the HENZIN 100 Inch HD 4K Portable Projection Screen. Yes, it’s cheap – £17.99 cheap. However, it does seem the company’s quality assurance lets the screen down.

 

This might make for a good first home theatre screen, but we feel that’s there are better ones available for a similar price. Sadly, our score is 5/10

Sitting behind the black velvet border is a lightweight Aluminum frame, which is complete with a centre bar. This ensures the screen remains tort and doesn’t wrinkle or sag.

Cons

ReaseJoy 100 inch Electric Motorized Projector Screen

Description

This ReaseJoy projector screen is a little different than the others in our list so far and costs £63.95 from Amazon.

 

The screen is made from two PVC layers. The front layer has a matte white finish with a black border, which increases the picture focus and contrast. The rear grey layer helps to diffuses projected light uniformly.

 

While all the other screens so far have had an aspect ratio of 16:9, the ReaseJoy has a 4:3 aspect ratio. This screen, therefore, won’t work for everyone as 4:3 feels smaller. Also, it has a gain of 1.3.

 

This home theatre screen sits in a metal case on a heavy duty roller. An electric motor allows silent operation and is controlled by a remote (battery not included).

 

Setting the screen up is fairly easy. Simply mount the case on a wall, connect the mains and you’re good to go. There’s no need to built a frame or spent time attaching hooks.

 

Pros

  • Motorized screen
  • Easy set up

 

Cons

  • 4:3 aspect ratio (some will dislike)

 

Conclusion

While other versions in the ReaseJoy use the standard 16:9 aspect ratio, this 100-inch screen uses 4:3. This might feel different considering nearly all LCD monitors display in 16:9.

 

At £63.95, the ReaseJoy 100 inch Electric Motorized Projector Screen is great value. We would be quite happy to mount the ReaseJoy screen in front of our TV, allowing us to choose the best viewing experience.

 

Our rating 7/10!

Finally, the VonHaus screen comes with a 2 Year Manufacturer Warranty.

 

Pros

  • Easy to set-up
  • Comes with remote
  • 2 Year Manufacturer Warranty

 

Cons

  • No hardware attachments included

 

Conclusion

If you enjoy the occasional movie and want to take your viewing experience to the next level then for £79.99, the VonHaus 100 Inch Electric Motorised Projector Screen is worth it.

 

The only thing that irritates us is that you have to supply the screws to install it. While quite annoying, it’s not a deal breaker.

 

We like the remote and the motor, it’s smooth! Plus with a gain of 1.1, the screen produces a very clear, sharp image. As you can attach the VonHaus to the ceiling, it’s versatile and doesn’t need much space of its own.

 

We rate the VonHaus 100 Inch Electric Motorised Projector Screen: 8/10

Description

With its old school vibe, the Duronic Projector Screen MPS100/169 costs £69.99 (available from Amazon).

 

While it doesn’t have a motorized element, it’s simple to set-up. Using the handle, you can easily unroll and roll up the screen.

 

The exceptional matt white finish is both HD and 3D ready, and will faithfully reproduce sharp, clear images. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a gain of 1.0. Duronic screens are thicker than many other standard projector screens on the market.

 

This home theatre screen effortlessly rolls up inside the metal case. It’s easy to mount the unit on the wall or ceiling.

 

Pros

  • HD and 3D ready
  • Easy to set-up

 

Cons

  • No motor

 

Conclusion

Putting to one side the pull-down element, the Duronic Manual Pull Down HD Projection Screen holds it’s own with the most expensive on the list.

 

As the backing blocks out light, the images are crystal clear and bright. Overall, the viewing experience is excellent.

 

Yes, it would benefit from a motor, which should be easy enough to add (and control using a home automation system). However, it’s a tiny issue.

 

The only other thing to be aware of is the case size. it’s quite a bit larger than the screen. So ensure you have more than enough space.

 

In our opinion, the Duronic screen is worth the £69.99 and scores: 8/10.

 

 

Best 100 inch home theatre screen

There’s a superb choice of home theatre screens on the market. However, you’ll want to avoid the super cheap ones.

 

If you’re just starting on your home cinema journey then, you’ll need to spend around £30 on a screen. Both the NIERBO and OWLENZ are fantastic not only for the price but for the image quality.

 

Got more to spend? Buy the Duronic MPS100/169. It’s worth the £70. Ignore the pull-down element, unless you want to stick a TV behind it. It really holds it’s own against screens that are double the price.

 

It’s of no surprise that our two most expensive home theatre screens (the QualGear and Elite Screens) are the best. Both are worth upgrading too and you’ll notice a difference straight away.

 

What’s your favourite home theatre screen?
