The best outdoor projector screen will be something that can stand up to the wind, is easily assembled and has a great screen surface. The JaeilPLM 100-Inch Wrinkle-Free Portable Outdoor Projection Screen checks all of those boxes and then some. With an incredibly stable triangular base, beautiful 100″ screen and lightweight portability to back it up, this is an incredible screen that comes in at a very low price point.
Let’s jump right in and talk about the innovative triangular frame design on the JaeilPLM. The all aluminium frame is made from interconnecting lightweight poles that slot easily into the included plastic connectors. This simple design makes assembly a snap and the entire unit can be assembled in 10 minutes or less with a bit of practice.
One thing that is a common complaint, but not a deal breaker, is the poles have no form of locking mechanism. So if you go to lift the JaeilPLM outdoor projector screen up, the bottom most poles will simply slip out of place. A small pop-lock on all the poles would have gone a long way to making this product even better.
Size wise this outdoor screen is a solid compromise between something that is not too big, but still provides more than enough screen real estate to satisfy even the most die hard football fan. The screen itself measures in at 100″ on the diagonal and with the standard 16:9 aspect ratio, this translates into an 86.7″ horizontal and 49.3″ in vertical space as shown below. Plus the included frame boosts the screen 27.5″off the ground giving it over two feet of additional height to provide great viewing angles.
The screen material itself is made from wrinkle free PVC, this matte white screen has a typical 1.1 gain to provide enhance brightness and increase the clarity of the projector image. If you’re looking for something a bit larger than 100″ but still has the same 1.1 gain, you might want to check out our review of the Elite Screens Yard Master 2 which has a large range of sizes and aspect ratios at the expense the stable triangular frame design. If you still looking for a projector to go along with your outdoor screen and so you know exactly what size is right for you, check out our best Outdoor Projector Buyers Guide for a complete guide to outdoor entertainment.
In regards to the frame design, we have to say this is one of the most sturdy and windproof outdoor projector screen we have reviewed to date. Even in moderate winds the JaeilPLM screen does an incredible job of staying upright and not flapping around. The triangular base is far superior when it comes to stability than traditional dual leg designs and with the included guide wires even heavy winds won’t stop you from being able to enjoy an outdoor movie and you won’t have to worry about your screen being blown away.
Plus the screen is held securely in place thanks to multiple Velcro straps that surround the outer edges of the frame. These are very easy to attach to the screen and work quite well overall. We do prefer a snap in system as they tend to be a bit more secure. An example of one can be found on the Elite Screens Yard Master 2, but the Velcro also does an excellent job.
Aside from the awesome stability and frame design the JaeilPLM portable Outdoor Projection Screen comes loaded with additional accessories, all of which are able to be stored in the convenient carry bag. These include all the required connectors, poles, screen, guide wires, Velcro attachment strips, hooks and more. This is a complete outdoor projector screen package so you won’t need to purchase any additional items to go along with it.
With the included black roll down fabric for the rear of the screen you’ll have awesome images that are back light free and yet, if you want can roll it up to use the entire area as a rear projection screen. This extra versatility goes a long way to improving our overall rating of this product.
In summary this is an incredible screen that provides a great viewing experience. It is very quick to set up, take down and easily carried to alternate locations. The triangular base is extremely stable and provide a great means to resist all but the strongest of winds and allows it to boast a 100″screen that will blow away all but the biggest of indoor TVs. The included aluminium poles are high quality and extremely resistant to rust. With all the included accessories you’ll have everything you need for a Saturday night movie and can impress all your guests. Lastly the standard 1 year warranty makes this a great first choice, for anybody looking to get their feet wet or just tying to find the right screen to fit their backyard.
