The screen is great. I set the projector and screen up on the dining room table, and the screen is so good that even with the dining room light on (which is _between the projector and the screen_) you can still see what's on the screen fairly well. Quite amazing, really. Needless to say, I had the light off for the most part.
Haven't tested the Safcord yet (don't think you're supposed to use it on oriental carpet), but the gear looks good. Lots and _lots_ of fun. Should be good for watching movies, too; we popped in a DVD and it looks nice.
