The projector is very bright and IS definitely outdated, but hey, how could I pass up a 1080p projector with 300 original lamp hours for 190$ on ebay? That was my thinking at least, I thought I got a steal?
More like you got Hoodwinked....or worse, just didn't know better.
Well everyone has to learn eventually...some the hard way, other by finding out from Balloon Poppin' people like me.
The Dell 5100mp is a SXGA projector 1400 x 1050 (4:3) No 1080p there, Bub, ......1080p = 1920 x 1080
I really tried hard to avoid posting, cause I know these questions have been asked a million times, but it seems like every few months the consensus for the best paint changes. Which usually leads to conflicting reports when I'm sifting between older and newer threads. I thought an update from the wizards would be best!
Darn....now iffin' you had posted and asked about the PJ in question and what would have been the best screen....before you jumped.............
NEVER hesitate to ask what you might think is a redundant, silly....even outright dumb question. No such things exist in this realm where we want to address every member's needs, when he is in need. This might hit home.....many people are not very well learned, and most have no clue as to what has been posted before they came aboard.
It's been some while since any Member might expect a Flame Job simply because he posted a question already answered 5-10 posts back.
I'm definitely going with a thrifty white board, and I was unaware of the subpar performance of SF and MaxxM screens in dark rooms.
Where the 'ell did that come from ????
Totally false ! And brother, talk about a silly premise! Ya got a screen that delivers an excellent image in adverse conditions.....deep Blacks....great Whites and Colors....excellent Detail and virtually NO viewing cone....at all !
........and somehow it's going to look worse in a light controlled setting? For the record....anyone...anywhere...who could voice that sort of comment is either 1000% clueless as to how the world works, or they have a personal agenda to fulfill.
Well I guess I myswell return the Wagner and roll the paint. Now that I have some extra money, are there any other paints I should throw in? I have 50 or 60$ to spend on a nice paint mix since I'm not going with the SF or Maxx mix. I would like to be able to get everything local at home depot/lowes and michaels.
You go with a Silver Fire v2.5 4.0
and get crazy happy. We can show you how to tweek the Mix to suit your PJ when it is on Low lamp, and if it is still too bright, you just simply add on a ND Filter.
Let's get you thinking straight....be it with a Roller or Gun, advanced paint scheme or a simple "One Can Wonder".
