I'm actively trying to find a new projector and I would like some recommendations on what disc or discs to take with me to test the various projectors I look at.

Suggestions?

V for Vendetta. It has so many dark scenes. This could help you see how well the PJ handles shadow details and overall contrast and black levels.

Get a real test disk such as Disney WOW or the Spears and Munsil #2 disk if testing 3d.
Both have contrast, brightness, gray scale, real life images, and more.

Thank you both for your suggestions.

I've thought about getting that WOW disc just to calibrate my current projector so I think that is what I will go for.
