elite-cinetension.jpgIt's not too difficult to find affordable fixed screens from a variety of manufacturers and in an abundance of styles these days. It seems even the big-ticket brands are offering some sort of entry-level product to bring new customers into the fold. The same cannot be said for remote-controlled electric drop-down screens. While every screen manufacturer worth its salt has an electric screen or two in its arsenal, none seem to be quite as affordable, or good in some cases, as the Elite Cinetension 2 reviewed here.

Available online from Elite's own website, the Cinetension 2 is Elite's top offering, yet keeps with Elite's core business values: high performance at affordable prices. The Cinetension 2 is a cord tensioned retractable electric screen for on-wall or on-ceiling home theater installations. It comes equipped with an IR and RF remote control and requires the use of a 120-volt power source nearby. The Cinetension 2 can also be operated via a 12-volt trigger for a truly hands-free presentation. The screen itself comes in a variety of sizes, ranging from 84 inches to 150 inches diagonally. Whatever your size or screen material, the price maxes out at $1,349, which is a phenomenal value for a large-scale electric screen. My current screen is a 92-inch woven surface electric that retails for well over five grand. The equivalent from Elite, which do not offer a woven finish but does supply a perforated edition, would cost me well under a grand. That's a tremendous value. The Cinetension 2 comes fully assembled, with a two-year warranty from the factory and is ready to simply plug and play in a matter of minutes. What more can a videophile on a budget ask for?
