Did notice that a little Jeff, but bet it's a lot more pronounced on your 14ft screen than my 10.5 footer.
Took advantage of some Best Buy points I had been stacking up and ended up picking up almost 2 dozen BD's this week. Even though it was a dupe that I already had on HDDVD, I ended up getting King Kong and it is another movie that really shows off the Lumis' capabilities. Some scenes are just a torture test for contrast and in fact I'd say it's the first BD that I've seen that might actually exceed the HDDVD version. I'd strongly suggest that other Lumis owners check it out. Apocalypse Now Redux is another fave that just leapt off the screen as well. Hadn't seen this version even though it's one of my favorite movies and was seriously blown away at seeing it for the first time in HD (although there are a few very blurry scenes -- not sure why).
In many, many years of scouring the high end of audio and video I'm astounded at this projector's ability to continuously and pleasantly surprise me with it's capabilities. I cannot recall another piece of audio or video gear other than perhaps the Lamm ML2 amplifiers that have this ability that can only demonstrate itself over time, once the new product glow has worn off to achieve this effect of continuously exceeding expectations. It's very rare in a piece of CE (for me at least) to not become bored or find flaws in some aspect of its reproduction.
