I was hoping to check in with those of you who have chosen the Tiburon. It seemed from this thread that everyone was pleased, but then I was reading Accu Cal's screen report (can't link - sorry) that many seem to hold in high regard and was a little surprised with the findings on the Tiburon. I had originally planned on getting the SI Black Diamond because of the ambient light capabilities and (especially) the zero edge design, but after seeing it in person it seems - unfortunately - that I am one of those people who notice the shimmering. It did not jump out at me, but my room's light control is not terrible and I refuse to pay 4 grand for something that might grow to drive me insane.
The Tiburon seemed like a good compromise with its slight ambient light capabilities, price, and lack of shimmer. Before I read the previously mentioned report, the only downside for me was the lack of a zero edge type frame. I wish I could get the aesthetics of the small frame, but will gladly give that up for a better picture.
So I guess all of that breaks down to this: have you Tiburon owners remained pleased with your image and have you noticed a lot/any sparkles? I can deal with a small amount. If this screen does in fact have the shimmering qualities mentioned at the levels given in the report, I will likely just go with a Da-lite UTB Contour (don't know what screen materials yet) to get the thin bezel look and pocket the savings.
I will have either an Epson 5030ub or Sony HW40ES, 110 inch screen, around 13ft throw (not installed yet, could be increased if necessary), and 14ft main viewing distance. I really appreciate your impression and/or advice.
