I agree. Several years back when I had an RS2 and I went from a 1.1 gain screen to the Dalite HP screen (2.8 gain) colors popped more and the picture looked a bit sharper. Extra brightness really can make a difference.
In dark scenes my RS4910 is definetely a bit darker than my RS45 was and I too always felt satisfied for the most part with the 45. I had my RS45 until a month ago and I did the same comparison between the HW50 and the RS45 having both projectors on and blocking the lens. The bridge scene in the first Spider-Man movie is my demo of choice to compare black levels. Switching between the two the Sony looked a little gray in comparison. Even though I can't do an A/B with...
I agree that fan noise is important but to most it's not going to be equally as important as picture quality. As far as noise is concerned your environment is going to dictate the importance of that as well. I had the HW50 and it is definitely more quiet than my RS4910 but now that the HW50 has been gone for a few weeks it's not that noticeable in my environment when watching a movie.
I generally agree with most of what is in the review but each category can't be weighted equally like already mentioned. Some factors like picture quality should be weighted more than issues like fan noise, menus, etc.
Glasses like the Xpand 105s say they are "Full HD 3D" capable. I thought the instructions also said they could be used ith "Full HD 3D" capable devices.So for the JVCs do you have 2 options? (1) Glasses that work with the Bit Cauldron emitters (estar, Optoma, Curte Palme) or (2) the JVC emitter (JVC, Xpand, other)Is that correct?
I agree. I would think the device should always listen on a specific port and the PJREQ command shouldn't be necessary. None of my other devices require anything like this. Even if the PJREQ command didn't close the Menu, in my situation I would have to resend another PJREQ command to reestablish communication after powering off my iPad. This sounds like poor programming logic IMO.
