I am offended because you imply that there is no problem and try to minimize my experiences. The absence of posting does not indicate that there is no problem. I encountered one situation where apparently conditions were right for severe eyestrain-severe enough to make me instantly nauseous (SICK). It was eyestrain that caused me to do any investigation. I realize that I am sensitive to RBE but I have four LG projectors (HW300T) and what I experienced on the PA70G was unexpected. If the picture weren’t so compelling I would simply have moved on.
When I read flyingsherpa’s observation I felt that I had to reply. He owned a DLP projector and described unusual eyestrain on his PA70G.
Fry’s charges a fifteen percent re-stocking fee. I believe that a prospective buyer should be aware that “SOME OWNERS” have experienced ATYPICAL eyestrain even if they get a perfectly focused projector.
We are friends, in the past, if you look at the interaction between us, it has always been good.
A few posts after your post, then flyingsherpa posted, your second post was to him. OK?
Now, I believe you when you say, the pa70g made you sick, so you have been waiting patiently waiting for more people to complain, and they have NOT been, you posted, then 4 posts after your post flinghserpa posted.
I agree, we all have different reactions to the same event/PJ/hdtv. You are describing your experience, and it was your experience a number of months ago, that made me cancel buying the pa70g! I cancelled it because of what YOU WROTE. Later I saw redneck geeks 41 min review and saw that his PJ didn't look like a "sickness gadget", and bought it. And I have been very happy with it. So, understand where I'm coming from, I do understand where you are coming from. And we are both right. Eye strain could also come from the picture being too bright, and someone has to turn it down some. On my hdtv and other equipment, it helps if I turn down the brightness. Also, you said you didn't get the sickness at 80 inch screen. Most are using around 80-100 inch screen sizes, and the pa70g is geared towards 80 inch screens.
I think you are saying there is something else that is causing the problem for you with the PA70G, it might be the scrobe cycle, or something else, but whatever it is, you are sensitive to it. I don't disagree that you are sensitive to it. But it is not the NORM. And eye strain for me I get from a number of my devices, and I try to take care of my eyes. Maybe if you turned down the brightness on the pa70g to where the 300 is, you wouldn't have a problem. I don't know.
Sorry for the joking around a little, I get like that from time to time, it's not personal. I was like that as a kid, clowning around and getting into trouble. It's my way. It's not evil -humor, just kid type stuff.
