After 140+ hours on my PJ, I took off the ND2 filter and the picture is fantastic. I have a good, glass ND2 filter and it helped with the brightness, initially - - which did hurt my eyes - - but I believe the projector has now settled down.
In conjunction with the Darbee Darblet - - my BenQ W1080ST on a 100" 1.3 gain screen really rocks. Incredibly uber sharp picture with vivid colors.
We watched the movie "Mud" yesterday and even though it might not be to some folks liking, the scenery and pace of the movie on the big screen is fantastic. The river, the trees, the boats and the night scenes are all very vivid.
There is nothing like the "big screen" experience to immerse yourself into a movie. Even though I have a 65" Samsung ES8000 - - which I do watch for sports, news and TV shows - - you cannot beat your own Home Theater "big screen" setup.
Especially for movies (letterbox) - - the BenQ really shines.
