This will be a short impression of the 500 after attending two showings at IFA. For reference I own the Sony 95 (which is my 14th projector) and I’m projecting on a 2.35:1 HP 133” screen. In terms of looks, the 500 does look like the 1000 smaller brother. They have the same design, same height and width but the 500 is a lot shorter, nevertheless the 95 has a more sleek look to it, though it’s a matter of taste obviously. Sony was showing 2 clips in native 4K and a short...
Ric, Let me get this straight. Are u saying that the “Glasses Brightness” control on the Sony menu (I think it goes from 1 to max) actually effects the Monster glasses? If so, then that's very strange as this does not have any effect on my Optoma glasses/Sony 30ES combo. The Optoma glasses only respond to changes made in the emitter and NOT the brightness settings in the Sony. I do however find the “Depth control” in the Sony menu useable to get better results in...
Ric, Thanx very much for a great review. Which numbers are u using for the Monsters to achieve very little ghosting? I wonder why people are not using the exact numbers? Perhaps the type of screen used has also an effect on final settings. BTW I'm using 1076 with 73. Projecting on a 130" HP screen Thanx Ran
thrang, Can u please explain why u choose to do this: "Low 1 (service menu adjustments: 90% greyscale gain R 124, G 126, B 132 - 20% Bias R 124, G 123, B 130)" Rather then using one of the custom col temp and adjusting Gain and Bias from the user Menu? Thanx Ran
hey Guys, I wonder if anyone has an idea on a strange problem I’m seeing. For some reason the Gamma Option in the menu has disappeared. I can’t see this option anymore. I have entered this option just 3 days ago and played with the different presets and settled on Gamma 3, but now for some reason, this has just disappeared from the menu. It’s probably has to do with the signal my projector is receiving from my Tvix media streamer, but strangely I have not played...
Just to further comment on this problem. After seeing the HW30 and the 95, I would actually pick the 30 vs the 95 due to this sporadic problem of bright corners. I think that the 95 will have little to none advantage in terms of PQ over the 30 when it comes to bright scenes and 3D watching. The 95 will be superior to the 30 when it comes to dark and/or mixed scenes due to its higher native contrast, BUT if both units will have bright corners or if u are unlucky and...
Yes, the Mits 9000 I had at home was the worst I have ever seen in regards to bright corners. If I remember correctly the Mits is based on Sony's SXRD. On the other hand I have a friend with the 9000 that on his unit this problem is not that significant. I remember speaking with Mr.Bill Cushman back in the days of the Ruby and he told me that this is just "Luck Of The Draw". I found it odd at the time coming from a Sharp 12K DLP but as years pass it seems very much...
I was actually referring to Casino Royal and the chase on foot scene, it looks very very good on the 95 and the 30. However, I saw a clear problem on the unit they had at IFA (95) and the 30 I had at home in terms of bright corners which are visible during fade to black scenes and in some dark scenes cause the picture to be slightly washed out. Just put LOTR right at the beginning when there is total black and u can only hear Cate Blanchett speak and tell me...
Ric, Being "that friend", and following our conversation it's important to say that the 95 as the HW30 shine when it comes to bright scenes a la chase scene in Casino Royal. Looking at the scene one can admire Sony's brightness, sharpness, natural colors and handling movement which are all superb. The problem I saw at IFA with the 95 was during fade to black in which u can tell it suffered from 4 bright corners just as my Ruby did at the time. I saw the problem again...
Darin, I had a close look at the HW30 last night at my house. Looked at it for 4-5 hours. The Sony excels when it comes to bright scenes a la chase scene in Casino Royal, but once things get darker I could see and "feel" the bright corners. The unit I had suffered from 4 bright corners. I saw the same thing on the 95 at IFA. It's really a shame that Sony can't overcome this problem. Ran
