Are the gain numbers Lorddeff posted fairly accurate (not sure if they're from a previous thread or just guesses) or, if not, do you have measurements or confident visual approximations? Also, what effect does LF VS. plain SF have on the screen's shade with no on-screen image? Does it become noticeably lighter or darker?

Last post before my travels start:

Those figures posted were personal approximations. But some are close if not absolutely correct.

I can look back to find my own (and PBs) figures, but since v2.5 hit the Bricks, they all rose a slight bit.

The shade of Gray/silver remains the same....only when excessive light is cast upon the screen would the LF effect (...and SF's own effect for that matter...) result in a lightening. Then again, so would / does every other dark screen in existence.

But I state this...if a SF shade starts out dark, only the focused beam from a projector will really have a great effect compared to mere "ambient" light.
