even if you only game for 10mins at a time, it's a good idea to vary content. playing 40hrs consecutively in 10min intervals is the same as playing 40hrs straight. it's just really rare to see...

fair enough. I guess it gives a bit of a 'torture test' to make sure your tv isn't faulty too. if it can handle running slides for 3days straight, it should be able to handle normal viewing.

the only time I've understood the point of the slides, was when d-nice was using it as a 'pre-requisite' for his calibration settings. it gave a little bit of consistency(maybe) to make the posted...

i'll just ballpark it with the above calculation.

my screen is likely close to 1.0 gain as it appears completely uniform for a full 180*(ok, maybe 179* :p)

for what it's worth, I was getting...

generally the experts go back to black levels. kuro > zt60 > f8500
but the 'general enthusiasts' have often picked the f8500 over them because of it's brightness and ambient light performance.

you mean dig out the old curved screens they used to 'need' before they were lucky enough to get projectors capable of projecting a sharp, uniform image on a flat screen.

I mentioned that earlier and agree with you. we're kind of at that 'chicken/egg' catch right now. nobody wants to make a screen that can't be used by 99% of projectors on the market, and there's not...

that would be good if I 'knew' what the actual gain of my screen was. one is rated at 1.0, and may be that as it's a pretty basic white screen. the other is a grey material rated at .8. I imagine...
