Very much so, it definitely pulls you in more than being in front of a TV. One of the key elements of immersion is to have your peripheral vision completely filled with the screen. This is what the...

I have found it depends on seating distance. The trick is to sit far enough back that you can see the entire screen without needing to move your eyes or head. I'm running 135" on an Epson 8350 at 14'...

In my case, I had a wall right behind the couch and used a glass shelf to hold it slightly below the top of the screen. It was an ideal location, my Epson 8500UB was 13FT from the screen. With 1800...

I would stick with 16:9, yes most BD movies will come on 2:35:1 but it really isn't that big a deal to have horizontal black lines. Some people do 2:35:1 and run both formats with a projector that...

That makes sense, the low gain is removing the color "pop" effect of a white screen. I also had the same feeling the first time I fired up on the greyscreen that something wasn't right but you can't...

Great, glad to hear you like it! A few waves are normal and shouldn't be noticeable when playing movies. If they are, you may want to contact Elite Customer Service.
