x35 is right around 80ms iirc, which...

it can be done, but it's like 10x more expensive to get ok results with a projector and the lights on than to get great results with a projector and the lights off.

I think this is why I'm confused by it, it's kind of counter-intuitive that if you have your source and display set to full range, you can only see 16-235 on the pattern. and if you have it at...

I believe there is a setting on the ps3 called something like 'super white' that would give you a 16-255 range.


but as said before, if you want the f8500 to display 0-255 'correctly', then the...

you bet, that tidbit was hidden in my last sentence.


I believe it's actually the samsungs that are 'weird' in this regard. contrast is USUALLY used to set peak luminance, right?
