I have 16 hrs now on mine and about half of that was test patterns!
This is the first time in my life I have ever had a 1080p display, with a one to one pixel mapping option, and a 1080p source (Sony BDPS350 bluray) to test stuff with. By stuff I mean intermediate cables, switch boxes, scalers, component video vs. HDMI, distribution amps, AVR built-in component switches, etc. Finding reviews on this stuff (I trust) is impossible and I'm so thankful I can now do it myself. It may be time to invest in a colorimeter, too.
Quick review: Very quiet, even in shut down mode. No light leakage. Power zoom and focus work better than anticipated (using +/- buttons for such things can be aggravating but they've implemented it pretty well, almost as good as rotary knobs).
No discrete power or input IR commands
. No red/green/blue dead or hot pixels. No noticeable vertical banding but that is very program material related so too early to tell. Smooth screen still works great. 7 HD inputs on the back but no direct IR commands to get to them, you have to go in a circle to get to the one you want. Ugh!
Black level is good but I wouldn't say great. Maybe great as LCD's go but LCD's are terrible at this so what can I say? With the dynamic iris on an all black screen is quite dark but what good is that? I'm using a 1.78 AR homemade BOC screen but I may be converting to gray or probably Dazian Celtic blah-blah acoustically transparent which I bought but never used with my old projector.
Using "cinema one, color temp +1" things are still too red so I have to bump down the saturation some or one gets that "LCD red" look. I've calibrated by eye using SD Avia, Sony bluray movie secret test patterns, DVE HD Basics, HD HQV Benchmark, and "dead pixel buddy" from my computer.
What good is the built-in "waveform monitor" that "self adjusts" yet can't actually view the image it is throwing? That's a silly gimmick, right?
1-100 I give it an 87. If an ISF dude fixes the colors I'd bump that to 93. If a gray screen or filter fixes the blacks I'd give it better marks but that's sort of "cheating".
P.S. I don't give HQV test scores because some of them are subjective, especially the noise evaluation parts, so I don't consider that hard science. I can say that the PTAE3000U passes most of the jaggie/film/video resolution tests on that disc through HDMI at least, component is borderline in passing the 1080i resolution tests but that may be my bluray machine, not the projector.
