I am pretty happy with my new RS4810 but have one question. The unit I have has uniformly bright corners. I do not notice them when viewing most content, only on black or mostly black screens. The only time I have noticed it while watching content is when there is an intro or credits that are white in the middle of the screen. I do not seem to notice on dark screens with other stuff going on. Using the search function here only showed a few examples and the ones posted looked worse than what I have.
My concern is that I wonder if the bright corners reduce the contrast that I could be getting on the screen if they were not present.
Has anyone else thought this through?
AVS is willing to try to work with their supplier to exchange this unit if I can get some good documentation pictures to them but my camera and camera skills don't seem to be up to the task in my opinion. I think I can live with this (and some focus uniformity problems I have) if it isn't a really big problem. My calibrator has recommended I exchange it (of course he wants the best unit to work with), but I don't know if I want to hassle with it. He has not seen the pj in person, only going off of my description.
If the bright corners significantly reduce contrast I would probably go thru the hassle of exchanging it. If it is only an annoyance, I want to just let it go and enjoy the projector.
thanks for any and all opinions.
