i rather spend that money on a slightly more expensive sony bulb.
Sony lamps are the lower cost lamps here in the US.

I'm sure with some types of input material, this feature must do something to improve, but another review I've seen, noted the slight pumping (opening and closing) of the iris during motion, could be easily detected with the 55. To the reviewers eyes anyway.


Even with Sony (and other) brands of Broadcast Cameras, Auto Iris is something that good Technical Directors would never consider using on quality Studio and Outside Broadcasts. It never has to date and I think never will replace the experienced hands of the operator controlling the cameras as they move around and are subjected to varying light and flare conditions which are always apparent.
No need for the Iris. Just using the Projectorreviews.com settings will produce excellent results. I didn't care much about 3D either, but the wife and I have enjoyed a couple of 3D Blurays so far.

And since this thing finally allowed me to post again, I need to vent. Since the new (old) software was put in place, nine times out of ten when I reply or post, I get a "text needs to be more than two characters long" error, and my post is rejected.

I have had zero response from AVS, no matter who or how I try to contact. Except for Craig Peer who I bought my 55ES from, who had a suggestion that didn't work. I must say, the total lack of response from AVS was very discouraging. It takes a lot of digging just to find someone to contact.

See ya. Dave

Some advice please from others here who have a longer experience with the HW40ES & HW55ES.


I haven't found a final resting place as far as mounting the "55" yet, as have only had it for a few days and am yet to decide on it's final resting place?


Using it table top at present, I have slightly centred the image on the screen by adjusting the "Vertical" & "Horizontal" Thumbwheels at the top of the projector.


I was surprised to find that these adjustments do not have a centre detent or mid position and have several turns available on the control, thus multi-turn pots.


Thus..........I'm wondering if it is possible that these controls could actually be mis-adjusted and set "too far" in one direction and therefore not have the "Light Path" passing through the optimum centre section of the lens?


Have watched a couple more movies and am very happy with the picture displayed from this Sony, with out of the box settings.
Just a couple of tweeks on my ol' Pioneer BDP-LX52 Blu-ray Player so-far.

I think the trick is to place the projector so it's dead level and pointing straight at the centre of your screen. The adjust lend shift until the image is correctly placed.


You now have the shift wheels in the correct mid position.


I agree though, it'd be better/easier to have some sort of indicator.

I posted this is the hw50es thread but wanted to ask here too since projectors are very similar and this is a more active thread

---

anyone have any recommended settings for gaming? and do yall run reality creation on or off for gaming?

I use a ps4, xbox one, and pc and I feel like the picture is lacking...like it's kinda grainy or fuzzy and i feel like I can't get the best color reproduction out for games. I've had my projector for almost a year now with about 400hrs on the lamp. Looks AMAZING on movies though but I feel like it's potential for gaming could be better and I know it's my settings.

thanks!

I have sony 55es and screen I chose was SI pure white zero edge screen. I am so happy with my purchase. I was in the fence deciding stewart greyhawk vs studio tek and finally went with SI due to their cool design, technology and I have a dedicated light controlled media room.

So wanted brightness more and did not want to take chances with a grey screen that is more suitable with non-light controlled environment.

I did saw a demo of greyhawk with jvc x35 in a dedicated media room. And I did not like the brightness at all. This could be due to the projector x35 and the combination of grey screen.

SI company and my dealer recommended me pure white and I am happy with my purchase. It does reflect light on my light tan painted walls. I am planning to paint my media room with dark chocolate color so that should reduce reflections.

Good luck!
