For some reason I have a hard believing Rec. 2020 will ever happen in the consumer world. I honestly don't believe we're going to get anything better than what commercial theaters get. This means we...

There are a couple of materials out there that aren't half bad, but I think the retro-reflective high power material from Da-Lite gives you a LOT of gain with a livable amount of negative aspects...

It's been a long time since I've had a PD8150 head to head with a JVC. What's interesting is that I don't recall things looking this close between the two. I honestly think that because the image is...

Before any type of electronic convergence correction is applied. For the fine convergence system, integers of 5 are the worst case scenario as far as scaling artifacts go. The closer to numbers that...

It really depends on what projector it is. If it's anything 720p don't expect more than a couple hundred dollars unless it's 3-chip DLP from Sim2. I've seen a few Sim2 CXE 720p models go for about...

I might be tempted to buy a meter add-on, we'll see. After reading Cine4home's review of the Sim2 Lumis 3D-S (their top of the line 3-chip DLP just under the SuperLumis) I noticed something odd. They...

I hope Sony takes note of our naming scheme for these devices. I'm sure they'll love the monikers "brick" and "puck". :D

I think another rule-of-thumb is the screen shouldn't take up more than 75% of your screen wall.

I wouldn't go as far to say that. I think you see people use the the acronym 'HP' because so many people use it. It's the go-to screen material if you want a high gain experience. The reasoning...

Yeah, both the PD8150 and Q750i, for example, get basically the same ANSI and dynamic on/off even though one uses LED dimming and the other uses a physical DI. Both implement dynamic gamma to the...

High Power refers to a specific material from Da-Lite. If you mean high gain, then yes, that's the case. There are some higher gain materials out there that are angular reflective. But the High Power...

They were, but like I said, the 1100ES is the same projector with some updated processing and the price went up $2000, not down.

Why didn't the 1100ES price go down when the 600ES was released then? In fact, it went up $2000. It's the same projector as the 1000ES with a different motherboard.

I never said it couldn't be. I just don't think the PD8150 is bright enough to have one installed and still be "usable" on normal sized screens. You'd be forced to use a small screen or something...

Most likely not. The 600ES will stay as a part of their line-up just like the 1100ES will and has. They may not offer a cheaper model this year, we'll see. But if that's the case, I highly doubt the...

It's not a dumb question. It seems like every manufacturer places them in a different spot. On the X500, it's on a sticker right beneath the 3D Sync port which is located on the back of the unit.

That's what I thought. Yeah, there aren't any out there. Instead of blocking a static amount of light from a lamp, the LEDs simply dim dynamically so there is less light to begin with. If you look at...
