and all other HW10 owners,
Just want to share my "bright corner" experience with my HW10.
I've bought it at the end of June approximately.
When I set all up at home I immediately noticed bright corners (top left and low right). At start up on black screen they look very bright - top left is bigger. After 5-10 minutes low right becomes absolutely non-irritating but the top left stays visibly brighter then other image. I use low lamp Auto Iris 1, Recommended and other settings close to factory ones. When I watch the scenes that are almost dark, e.g. few images in the middle on a dark screen Auto Iris disguises top left corner very good! But during the mid-dark scenes in 2:35 AR top left side of black bar looks annoyingly brighter and when i have to look at the left part of the screen to follow the movie, well, it bothers me a bit.
A week after purchase I've returned to dealer's and checked two more HW10s. I was shocked. First had all four corners bright-lit at start-up and the second had a situation opposite to mine top right and low left corners being brighter. I decided to swap mine with "4 corners lit" becase when it all symmetrical - my eye's much less annoyed
but after uniforminy checking I found out that the color uniformity is visibly worse than mine.
At that time I still had my Panasonic AE2000 with very good uniformity with all colors, but... it was dust-blob addicted
I was sick and tired of disassembling it and blowing dust out. Plus HW10 picture quality was a big improvement over AE2000.
So, I've decided to keep my new HW10 and got rid of AE2000.
P.s. I haven't checked the pictures freakazoidman provided yet, will do it at home later and reply tomorrow about comparison with my case.
BTW, VPL-HW15 is already out - may be situation with "bright corners" got better?
