I would like to give this a try and see what it does. One thing I am not sure how to do "Then go in and bump 5 IRE 5 points". How do I do that?

Alan says what to do in post 345. I suggest reading from 337 to 345.

C'mon people I need more feed back. How do these look? Screen shots. Comparisons. Something. I am 3 months away from mine and I need something to vicariously enjoy.

Going from the rs1 to the rs10 I notice a definite jump in performance.
It has more brightness and higher contrast. Those combined with a sharper image and more features make it worth the jump for me.

From seeing a rs2 (well the pioneer clone) yesterday I can feel confident that the rs10 is on par with the rs2 after some tweaks. Its a little less bright when hitting the rs2 30000:1 but if you don't get too greedy you can get it close and have more lumens. Again...that combined with the sharper image and more features make it easily on par with the rs2 in my book.

I would LOVE to hear other opinons from people who have seen all of these units!!

I could be wrong...but I don't think so

Is this RS2 clone in a local showroom?

Congrats on the RS10 purchase, Lee.

Oh well - thanks for the advice - I still don't seem quite smart enought to figure it out. I could set the Gamma to 2.4 easily. I saw the curve for White as Alan mentioned in his message. When I get to the first point on the curve it says Input 5% Output 37. The second point says Input 10% Output 87, etc. You can move along the curve, but the only thing that can be adjusted is the output. Is he saying to increase the Output at the 5% point from 37 to 42?

Jason,
Can you share with us the color settings you settled on when you tested the RS10?

Nope...A buddy of mine snagged one from Tweeter the day before they locked the doors for a decent deal.

I saw a decent demo of a Sony VW60 at the Needham Tweeter weeks ago and it looked pretty good for a Tweeter demo. Decent sized screen, too, at 114". This was the day I found out Tweeter was going belly-up and I went there looking for a bargain on a flat panel.

I'm looking for the note from Jason saying "All the RS20's shipped out last Friday 2nd day air and should be on your doorstep when you get home tonight". I'm glad one of us got what we were looking for.

Jason is awfully quiet. I hope it's because he's working hard processing all our orders.

Are most of the pre-order RS10's already in people's hands or shipping?

In transit, if not landed, I suspect. Mine arrives Thursday, but I won't be home until next Friday to hook it up.

Got mine for almost 2 weeks now but not much time to meddle with it. It would be great if Jason can share the color adjustment setting.

I don't know. You could ask in the RS2 thread or ask Alan directly or just experiment. Anyway, the gamma bump to 2.4 is the gregr tweak and what is supposed to give the RS2 a 3D-look and you already have that done. Notice a difference?

Yes, I did notice an improvement moving the gamma bump to 2.4 compared to the previous setting. As this is my first 1080 projector, I can't comment on how that picture would compare to other 1080 projectors. I was watching Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. The picture and contrast of the first 20 minutes is simply stunning and has an amazing 3D quality with the RS10. It would be hard to imagine a better quality picture with a film like this although it sounds like possibly the RS20 might provide that. I am looking forward to learning more about the other settings on this projector to further tweak things.

I have watched 4 movies so far on the RS10. Kung Fu Panda, Pirates, and Wall-E - all have amazing PQ. Then I watched Ocean's Thirteen. Uggg... I hestitate to bring up the already mentioned color issue but the colors for this movie were awful. It's really hard to know if it was just the movie or possibly the projector as well, as I believe that the movie itself has quite intentional color saturation. I am sure the projector didn't make it any better. This would NOT be the film to show off a system...

Ocean's 13 looked like CRAP on my RS1. It aint even in the same ballpark (or planet) as Kung Fu Panda, Pirates, and Wall-E. Which are three of the best (if not THE best) transfers ever put to disc.

I was working on mounting my prismasonic lens today and noticed 2 small screw holes in the bottom near the lens edge...
Well here is what turned out


Are these holes for something else?? I had the right size screw to make this work...pretty sweet

I got mine a little after yours but just managed to get it out of the box tonight. Sad to have no time. Looking forward to the mandatory holiday vacation at work.
