15' Inflatable Outdoor Projector Movie Screen -Package with Rope, Blower + Tent Stakes - XHYCPY Inflatable Projection Movies Screens Great for Outdoor Backyard Pool Fun (15feet)

XHYCPY 15' Inflatable Outdoor Projector Movie Screen with -Package Rope, Blower + Tent Stakes

by Laika Factory

EFFORT LESSLY PORTABLE This amazing, huge outdoor movie screen comes with a convenient storage bag that allows you to carry your inflatable movie screen wherever you want. This portable projector screen is lightweight enough to take it with you in every relevant occasion for impressive projections.

The 15' XHYCPY Inflatable Movie Screen was our favorite screen for watching movies outdoors because of its size, brightness, and ease of use. It has plenty of surface area, so it's great for larger groups, and it's bright enough to see comfortably from 25 feet away. The XHYCPY's sound complaints about the fan blowing air "all over the place" were unfounded. The fan is quiet, and we didn't have trouble hearing movies or talking through the screen's speakers. The screen is easy to set up and take down, and it comes in a convenient carrying bag. It also folds flat, so it's easy to store when not in use. Our only complaint is that although it supports up to 110 pounds, it can only hold 100 pounds at once, so if you're planning to hold a large party, you'll probably want to invest in a second screen. The XHYCPY is easy to set up, easy to use, and packs up easily, making it a good option for outdoor movie-watching.

by N\A

Stable Tripod Stand: the frame is durable for free standing in light wind for the outdoor use, sturdy stand provides greater stability, with the carry bag make it easy to travel along with for family trips, camping, or backyard movie night ect.

This large 100-inch projector screen is inexpensive, easy to set up, and has a lovely image quality. The 100-inch screen is big enough to screen movies in your living room, but it's small enough not to overwhelm a small room. The screen is wide, so you don't need to sit directly in front of it, and it's 160-degrees wide, so the picture looks normal from all around the room. The screen is versatile enough to be used both indoors and outdoors. It's bright enough to be used in a bright sunlit backyard, but not so bright that it washes out the picture. The projector screen is easy to clean, and it's wrinkle-free, so it won't show stains when you clean it. The projector screen is intended for use with a projector with a minimum picture quality of 800 lumens. The projector screen has one input, but it's long enough to provide coverage for most projectors (most are 4 to 6 feet). The projector screen is lightweight, so it's easy to transport and set up. The projector screen is inexpensive, so it makes a good first projector screen.

Projector Screen with Stand 120 inch HD 4K Portable Movie Screen (16:9), Gobran 3D Fast-Folding Double Sided Projector Projection Screen for Indoor Outdoor Home Theater Backyard Cinema Travel

GOBRAN Projector Screen with Stand 120 HD inch 4K Portable Movie Screen (16:9)

by Gobran

[Easy to set up]: You can quickly complete the assembly of the projection screen within a few minutes as long as you follow the steps in the manual.We also provide two windproof ropes. If you use the projection screen outdoors, you can fix the projection screen with the windproof rope so that it will not easily fall down.

The Gobran 120-inch projector screen is cheap, but it's surprisingly well-made, with a sturdy steel frame and tough, wrinkle-free fabric. The screen is easy to set up, and it comes with two short stands, one long stand, and a remote (although the remote is very basic). The projection quality of the Gobran screen was much better than the two other screens we tested, and the Gobran screen was more comfortable to sit on. The Gobran screen is 120 inches, which is large enough for most rooms, and it supports both rear- and front-projection. The Gobran screen also has HDMI and VGA inputs, so you can use almost any computer with a display port or HDMI port to project onto the screen. The Gobran screen is bulky and heavy, so it may be hard to move, but it's ideal for use at a home, office, or outdoor movie theater.

Projector Screen with Stand, 100 inch Outdoor Movie Screen with Tripods, 16:9 4K HD Portable Video Projection Screen for Backyard Home Theater Outside Movie Night Camping w Carry Bag (100 Inch)

MOOKA FAMILY Projector with Screen Stand

[PORTABLE & EASY TO SET UP ] This 100-inch backyard projector screen with stand is adopted as an integrated portable design for easy and fast set up/tear down both indoors and outdoors. Its lightweight aluminum frame allows it to be set up within 5 minutes with no tools required. At only 6.2 pounds, both screen and stand can be easily folded into the attached carrying case (29*3.5*3.3 in), a good choice for traveling and camping, which takes little space and can be easy to carry anywhere.

The 100-inch screen is by far the largest on our list, and it delivers impressive image quality. The fabric surface has a soft glow and excellent contrast, and the image stays crisp even under bright outdoor lighting. The projector screen is large and heavy (it weighs about 13 pounds), so you'll want to make sure you have a strong table or sturdy tripod to raise it. The stand is wobbly, which means that the screen will bounce up and down slightly when you move or adjust the screen. The tripod is easy to set up, and you can use it for multiple projectors, but the flimsy design means that it can only support 30 pounds on each leg, which is less than the average projector's weight. The 100-inch projector screen only supports 3D and 1080P resolution, and you can't project 4K resolution. The tripod only supports 60 pounds, which means the projector screen is liable to collapse if you place a heavy projector on it.

by P-JING

Unique and Cever Corner Design The corners of the frame are hollowed out for easy mounting of the brackets. Outdoor movie screens will greatly improve their stability and flatness without undulations and wrinkles. Even if there is wind, it will not deflect easily. The hollow design facilitates quick installation and saves time. No need for screws and ropes or other accessories, the two can work together in 5 minutes and can quickly transfer places.

The 100-inch portable projection screen has a beautiful, wide viewing angle. The projection screen has a sharp picture, and it's easy to set up and fold up. However, it can only support 4K projectors, so it isn't ideal for gamers or movie buffs who want a crisp picture at 1080p. The carrying case isn't great, and the screen itself is a bit thick and heavy, so it's less portable than other screens. The self-adhesive screen also isn't as stick-free as we'd like; we had to apply a bit of pressure to get it to stick to our wall.

Projector Screen with Stand, Towond 120 inch Indoor Outdoor Projection Screen, Portable 16:9 4K HD Rear Front Movie Screen Pull Down with Carry Bag Wrinkle-Free Design for Home Theater Backyard Cinema

TOWOND Projector with Screen Stand

by TOWOND

Easy to Set Up. The outdoor movie projector screen comes with a foldable stand that can be easily assembled and disassembled without any tools. You just need to unfold the stand and the elastic cord inside will drive the stand to connect quickly and automatically, so you can easily finish the installation in 2 minutes. You will feel it is convenient and get rid of the trouble when you use it.

The Towond 120-inch projector screen is bigger and brighter than any other projector screen we've tested, and it's more affordable than most. The screen is large enough to project an image from about 10 feet away, and it provides a sharp, bright picture. Like the cheaper models we previously tested, the Towond screen can be pulled down for easy transport, and its black non-slip surface helps prevent it from slipping. The projector screen is 13 inches wider than our previous pick, so it can project an image from farther away, and the width also makes it easier to extend your legs. We liked the ability to project from all four sides, which makes it easy to project from different angles. The screen is also bigger than our previous pick, so you can fit more people in front of it. The Towond screen offers solid image quality, but it's slightly thicker than other models we tested, and its black surface can look less professional than white or gray screens. The Towond screen is heavy (about 9 pounds), so it's best for permanent installations. The projector screen comes with a carrying case, but we wished it came with a projector control box, which fits underneath the screen and includes controls for brightness, color, volume, and input selection.
