just want to make sure since I posted a bunch in that thread I saw some probs but they were not banding
I have seen two scenes that had artifacts, but since then no probs
but I have not seen any banding issues just the two blocking issues
and as I have said the pic is so nice I am willing to live with maybe and a big maybe seen one small issue for the great color and pic this pj gives overall
and I really only noticed this when looking for it
having to go back and replay the first one for my wife and try to point it out should tell you how small a prob it was
conversation was kinda like no honey look here wait I will do it again ok one more time did you see it ?? no OK let me try again OH cool OK you think you saw it
also I think one of the probs was off the Oppo player which has known macro blocking probs with some other components
in this price range everything has its compromise and the compromise is with certain components and certain signals that one might see banding etc..
but again the pic quality is so good that I notice so much more detail and everything else that I would much rather live with the superior pic quality all the time than be looking at muddy blacks all the time or noisy shadows all the time etc....
just watching band of brothers again on episode 6 and I really cant believe how much nicer this is than my plasma and for sure my other sharp dt-400
so maybe the analogy would be to say if shadow detail is not as good in another PJ should one be worried ?? if this is the case then almost all projectors will fall short of this one in the price range
also one thing that DNIe can also make things look funny ?? to me its like any fake extra boost usually has a down side kinda like the brilliant color or whatever they call it on the HD72 and the mits HC3000 looks good on a few bright scenes but the rest of the time causes more probs than its worth
turning that on I noticed that it can make certain bright scenes look a bit fake
so for me it stays off
