I use it to bring the brightness down. On my 100" screen with a likely .9 gain screen it is very bright and a ND filter brings it into range. Blacks do get darker but also the eyes are not as strained.
Thanks - I have a 100" Screen but really feel no eye strain, whatsoever, with a 1.3 gain, SmartEco, Cinema and Brightness between 45 & 47. Maybe it's the SmartEco that minimizes the brightness or potential eye fatigure? I'm also used to a bright LCD/LED 65" set - so maybe my eyes are used to that type of light.
All I know is that it's hard to go back to a smaller screen once you've stepped up to the wonderful world of projectors.
