What device are you using to feed the projector when you are not wowed by the picture? The reason I ask is that many devices have a setting called 'Black Level' (Maybe called something else) in their menu. Sometimes it has settings of Normal and Enhanced or 0 and 7.5 etc.
If you dont have that setting right it could give you a washed out picture with reduced contrast which calibration can't always overcome. If it has such a setting, try the other setting and do a quick readjustment of the brightness and contrast just to see how it looks.
It also exists in the projector in the Advanced Menu but I think its default is Auto so it can match various source's settings and adjust to suit.
