New LG PF1500 LED Projector

Agreed.
It still makes no sense whatsoever that a projector marketed with the exact same name, light output spec and contrast spec should have such major brightness and contrast variations...

New LG PF1500 LED Projector

Nice share; thanks Zombie.

How was brightness after calibration (particularly due to all the decreases of blue)? Still around the 700 lumen mark?






Makes sense. That's a pity since...

BenQ HT1075 Interference Noise?

Aaaah, contrast: the most fickle of all measurements. Important? Sure, but context matters: as you say, it's partially about room conditions.

But other aspects contribute to measuring as well:...

BenQ W1070 : DLP Full HD, 3D Ready with lens-shift for 1000$

BenQ w1070 vs w1075 vs Optoma HD50

You're spot on about that. They're backed by 3LCD/Epson; so they seem to only actually measure DLP projectors. For everything else, they simply use the manufacturer claim.

But it's useful for...

Benq w1070 Supply and Pricing?

Yeah, I leave my player on default 60Hz (despite the 3:2) and don't see RBE on the W1070. Still makes no logical sense ;-)
