The texture has started to bug me, my wife said something, unprovoked by me too. I don't notice any uniformity issues. It does perform well with lights on, which is nice when people are over...

Ok, lots of photos added, please ignore the multiple drywall repairs in progress. Some photos are with lights on, and then with lights off. I'm not a pro at this or else I'd organize and label them...

I haven't watched enough to comment. What I can say is that at my seat, which is about 12' away, I like the overall look. Haven't been bothered by the texture at all. The biggest problem is that...

Thanks everyone for all the advice. Any thoughts on the later images, I know they aren't great pics, but does it seem like this is a good course of action.

So the main reason I'm trying this is my projector is in a walk out basement and gets hammered with (4) windows on the adjacent wall. Since I painted last night and went to work today, I really...

Thanks, I do think I was a bit too aggressive putting 3 coats on in 4 hours, ha.

So I did perform one vertical pass at a time, and then after about 3, I gently rolled back over the previous 2-3...

So I had my first go at it last night. I seem to be struggling with how unforgiving this paint is. I've had my projector just on the plain wall for over a month. Never once did any minor defects...

So I've decided to max out my sub budget and go for one of the new HSU models. I was leaning towards the MK5, I guess mainly to keep the purchase under $1,000 because I always have bad buyers...

Thanks everyone for all the help. I'm down to two, the MK5 or the VTF15H-MK2. Yes, they both blow the budget, but I don't want to be second guessing myself, and even after reaching out to HSU, they...

You bring up a good point. I do have younger kids, so I do need to be somewhat careful. I am fortunate that this is the basement and they are upstairs. I never thought about extra performance...

I'm starting to agree with you. I feel I either go for the MK4 and save some money or spend the money and get something like the MK5, and buy once, cry once as they say. My SB2000 was bought used...

Ok, spent the evening reading more about Hsu, and the mk4. I'd say I'm now down to that or the pb2000. Is the pb2000 worth the extra $100?

Will either be sufficient for the 35x16x8 room, with a...

I hadn't given much thought to the HSU, but just a brief look and it seems the VTF3 MK4 is not too far off from the PB2000. Is that correct? Is $700 shipped a good deal for those? What did they...
