Looks more like ~650x650 to me.

In any case, I'm sitting about 6 feet away from a 92" screen at 1080p, and I can almost make out pixels. So I'll stick to 1080p for now.

Where'd that come from?. If that's true, I wonder what else may have been improved.

You're right, there's really no comparison. A properly calibrated 9" gun crt projector will absolutely demolish the picopro for image quality. Heck, my old 7" gun 1080i rear projection did as well. ...

What don't you entirely agree with? If 2 projectors are calibrated and one of them has much higher native contrast, it will do better with shadow detail. Sure a poorly calibrated projector can crush...

I don't understand the hype around this.

Accuscreens Fail!

I bought an accuscreens fixed frame 92" off costco, supposedly in cinegray.
The material is light blue in color and doesn't fit the frame :mad:

Too good to be true indeed.
