This is really a question of the room environment. Most manual and electric screens are available with the same surface treatments. Electric projection screens give “wow” factor. But if you are going to leave the screen in the down position most of the time, either will work well. Keep in mind the size of the screen. The larger the screen, the more space a fixed screen will take up in your room. Electric screens can be hidden in the ceiling and have a stealth esthetic appeal.
