A fellow member asked me to calibrate the 750 in their HT so as a thanks I got to borrow it for a while. With my relatively new blacked out room, I've been sensitive to iris activity on any of the...

I've had the Runco LED stacked with the Planar, they look strikingly similar with a D65/R709 calibration. I've also had the CineLED here as well, Optoma HD91 LED and another LED I haven't discussed...

Does the 1500 look any brighter in person than the PF85? it's hard to tell from the video.

it's very likely a plastic lens at this price point. it doesn't have to be a bad thing as long as it has relatively even focus uniformity.

The little plastic lens on the QUMI does a very good job...

The X700 contrast advantage comes in when manually clamped down which isn't likely on this sized screen. I've had the 500/700 in an A/B stack. wide open, good luck figuring out which projector is...

Why isn't the Epson a consideration? it sounds like TV and Sports were the first 2 items listed so it may get a lot of use. the 9600 could be a reasonable price point for this setup.

Did you finally get calibration software? If so, make sure and check all saturation levels @ 100/75/50/25. I'll be look at this closely to see if it matches Cine4home's findings.

it's possible it would have suffered the same fate as other 3D DLP's like the Optoma HD91 which was too dim in 3D mode. They claimed 1000 lumens but it was really 600-650 and dropped to 450 in 3D...
