once the projector hit the screen the waves disappeared!
viewing angle seemed much wider than high power
the screen really gave me a beautiful crisp image
SDE greatly reduced ( this is with the x1 and results may vary. the lines basically blended into the screen and i could definitely sit much closer to this screen than with a high power)
then i turned on the lights
sitting close to the projector was ok, but either side was out of the question.
the high power i can have lights on one side of the room, sit on the other as if they weren't on. not so with this screen. i had a lamp tucked in a corner away from the screen and the image was still washed out. was very upsetting because i thought this might have a chance. i think for those with light cannons thinking about the high power this is a much better choice. i think it would have better color saturation in ambient light with a few more lumens hitting it. i really want to get ahold of some other projectors and have some comparisons.
very film like image. i liked the fact that even though i wasn't completely filling the screen the gray color didn't stand out like the high power. for the first time with the projector i felt as though i was in a theater. hard to explain but usually the high power has a very sharp 3d image. although you could say dingy and muddy colors with the gray wolf i would have to disagree. instead they just felt perfect. of course i'm used to watching HD and the best i had was composite. it did remind me of just how well the x1 can perform with sdtv though. i'm going to connect some quality source material tomorrow and see what results i can achieve.
with the high power i can easily notice the viewing cone when moving around. thankfully with the graywolf it was barely noticeable. however, the cone may be the same its just that the high power is so bright in the cone that its easier to tell. i will edit this tomorrow and provide a better more concise summary once i have had time to tinker with settings.
