No, I'm not a lens expert by any stretch of the imagination. The good thing here is that it's rather rare that a projector manufacturer that's selling a projector in the under $15000 price tell us...

First of all, I am a liberal, but this isn't the time or place for that. If you were given the choice between two lens options for your projector and the end quality of one lens was the same (equal...

You have to remember that some people are all about brands. It's the reason why people buy certain products. They want other people to see that they own brand-x. To the owner it makes them feel...

If almost half your use is for gaming, go with the HW55ES. This will give you the best compromise between gaming and movie viewing, both of which will look excellent on the Sony. The limited native...

I choked up a little of my coffee when I read this. Right now I have a Marantz VP-15S1 and a JVC DLA-X500. The Marantz has a custom made Konica Minolta lens designed specifically for the light engine...

Most of the time manufacturers do not give out this information in its entirety. Sometimes nothing but throw is given. My point here is that most of the time all the information isn't given so it's...

The names are generally good, but we'll never know the quality of the lens. Just because it's a Zeiss, Leica, or Nikon lens does not mean it's always going to be better than a lens from another...

Ignorance is bliss, that's for sure. :)

Take out your bulb and clean the port glass with some lint free wipes. It's really as simple as that. Just make sure the cleaning solution you use is meant for optics. 99% Isopropyl Alcohol is good...

You're right. Temperamental is a poor choice of words. Though I don't believe either of us referred to the ST100 or ST130 as an "ambient light rejecting screen". We just said the ST130 would do...

Check my edited post. The ST130 is a good option. Or even the new Firehawk G4 looks promising. Compared to what they charge for a BD screen I don't think there's a huge difference in pricing....

Let's put it this way. If you didn't have to deal with any ambient light and your room was treated well for reflections, placing something like a Stewart ST100 screen next to the Black Diamond would...

If HDMI port 2 works with the same exact signal it most likely means there's a physical issue with the port, aka it's broken.

Like I said, there's no right or wrong just recommendations built around normal human visual acuity. In the end it comes down to personal preference. The recommended distances are to get you started.

I misunderstood you. I thought you were trying to say that both things were necessary. I think your approach is the right one to take. I'd rather sit farther back and use that as my low pass filter.
