A funny little thing about brightness.
I had the 92" ST130 ( gain about 1.1 because off microperf ) screen with my old Marquee 8000 ( a CRT projector ....you know !?
) and I belive I was looking at about 1-3 Ft L and did find it okay
( I have a "true" batcave ) - and when I had the 1000ES home for test - I had about 40 -50 Ft L on the same screen - yes it was bright
........did I find it too bright ? hell NO , it was very beautyful and extreme addictive
I think Mark has found a perfect solution - a superb 2D screen ( Snomatte 100 ) with a projector with loots off light calibrated and then for the 3D - down come the HP hero and save the (day) light
For my own part, I will go for the CP2 screen ( and a HP screen for the 3D ) and sadly downgrade the picture ( and windows effect ) a little, because I need a AT screen in my setup and find the CP2 ( 0.95 gain) to be the best compromise ( the famous and very fine En4K has to low a gain for my taste/ size etc. .....begining to like it bright
JustMike, are you still happy with yours ?
BTW. My ST130 never "disappeared" 100%, because off the microperf and a little shiny effect in big white areas
