Made my own masking the other day, i used roll up / roll down curtain hanger ( manually ) using 8"H felt cloth for my 115" in PJ screen ( for the upper black border only and i change the x/y height to eliminate the lower black).

And use the excess felt cloth for the screen wall. Now, the PQ and contrast is much better w/ less reflections from side walls. Soon will be the ceiling near the screen :P

I'm also projecting on my textured wall until my blackout liner arrives Wednesday and I build a screen.



First, I noticed what I've come to learning is called "chromatic aberration", and seen some people cite it as normal at this price range, and even specifically shown it on a W1070. Is this something that would be virtually impossible to avoid and I should expect in any replacement?




Thirdly, I discovered black, white, and green clipping. This pic was taken when it was getting quite bright out so you can hardly see the blue but it's there. The green is a solid bright green - no steps of shade at all. I've seen only a couple people ask about black and white clipping that got vague responses about it possibly being the source, but earlier in this thread, I found a couple people talking about it. One said it was normal with this projector, I guess, and the other was reporting they they actually had no clipping (BenQ W1070 : DLP Full HD, 3D Ready with lens-shift for 1000$). I read elsewhere that this might be an Nvidia issue to which there might be some registry edit that could circumvent their glitchy controls. My source is my Windows 7 PC through a GTX 650 ti. Nobody else mentioned color clipping like my green, which further makes me wonder if my projector has a special problem beyond normal.



Lastly, I'm not sure if my walls are not level in my apartment or not, but the top of the projected image seems straight, and the right side seems pretty parallel to the right wall, but obviously the left side isn't. I put a level on the table I have the projector on and it reads level. Adjusting the angle and moving side to side always brings me to this position, so I guess it's square with the wall as can be...

So, does this all seem within typical/acceptable quality, or should I return for a replacement within the 30 day window from NeweggFlash? I'm new to projectors so I thought I could use opinions from an experienced community. Thanks.
Is your screen really that pink on white scenes? I'm coming from a Samsung 60F5300 plasma that has a pink tint problem, so I would hate to buy this and get the same thing, lol.

What are you using to scale the 2:35.1 material down on the screen?

its the xTreamer Sidewinder 3 (NMT PLAYER). if ur using HTPC, some players also have this features, i think it was MPC (?). the nice thing about this features is ur ideal screen image will be retained at ur preferred eye level distance.
