Maybe some of you who have seen this thing in action can help me with a dilemma.
I have a bad set up for contrast. Miami, FL apartment - white ceiling, light walls, sliding doors next to the screen. Our lifestyle doesn't have us viewing much in the daytime, and at night its easy remove any ambient light.
A while back I picked up an Epson 8350 B-stock which I have never been quite satisfied with. I had a Panasonic AX200u that I loved and the Epson was really a minor upgrade. I have been wanting to step up to the next level of PQ for a while, and really gain a bump in contrast. Is the fact that I have a terrible room going to negate the benefits of this projector completely?
With all of the lights out, if I put my hand in front of a black section of the screen, there is a huge difference in black level that the projector is giving me and what is possible with the ambient light, so I think there is some room for progress.
