You have no idea the calibrated lumens of this projector, yet you've already castigated the unit without fact. You're "guessing" (at best) that it will be 400. Upon what is that guess based? Your crystal ball?IF
it is discovered that the unit only puts out 400 lumens when calibrated, AT THAT POINT
you would be able to make such a statement. My projector, for example, is rated only 1000 lumens, and "as everybody here knows"
, it puts out about 800 calibrated. Somewhat less than the maximum possible, but certainly not 75% less. Not all lumen claims are as disproportionate as the Panasonic you thoughtfully chose as your example.
To make a statement such as yours without knowing the calibrated lumens of the projector in question is irresponsible. It may only achieve 400 lumens but it may also achieve 1000 or more - you have no idea, which means you're talking out of your arse at this point. Such statements are not helpful to forum members - on the contrary, they are harmful.
Why not try to properly educate the forum members instead of making grandstanding statements with no basis in fact?
The right thing to do would be for you to apologize to the forum members for misleading them by wording your statement as you did, and issue a reformed statement indicating "if this projector only does 400 lumens when calibrated like that horrendous Panasonic, THEN it will be to dim and it will suck" etc. Based on the bluster of your previous statement, I'm not holding my breath. However, if people want to read an accurate rendition of what you meant to say, my quote is far closer.
Whether you find this rude is frankly not my concern.
