Желаю вам удачной конвергенции .
I wish you successful convergence .
I've been lurking for 3 weeks on this thread waiting for my 8350 to arrive, replacing a very well used Powerlite 10+ (don't laugh, it was not that bad!) Needless to say I'm very impressed with the new picture, although the blacks are a little less than what I expected..but it's not calibrated yet.
My questions: the PJ was very quiet UNTIL I set up both my BR and DCT to output 1080p/i respectively..the projector then got much louder (although still pretty quiet..) Why is that? I sure liked the noise level before (I had them set for 480 before....lol)
Watched Alice In Wonderland on it last night...very cool...but it I think I would benefit from outputting at 1080p @ 24hz, as movement seems blurry-ish..but I am running component to the PJ, is this possible?
Any tips right of the bat would be great. I'm going to try calibrating with Disney WOW this weekend..
Thanks for reading, and the great forum!
On the new Blu Ray of The Incredibles you can find a new THX optimizer, with new contrast and brightness calibration tools. After using these, I confirmed that Super White is useless, unless you want to limit the range of your new Epson PJ (not recommended). Also expand your HDMI range to Expanded for the full range of tones from super bright, whiter than white to super dark, darker than black. Then, calibrate. I'm finding that post calibration, I have an amazing picture that rivals the gold standard set by plasmas. Notice I said "rivals" not "equals, as nothing equals the dark blacks of a high end plasma, but to these eyes, you would have to spend double to get close and for me, it is not worth it. Watched Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps recently and was blown away. Also, I saw Thor in the theaters recently and looked at how grey many dark areas were in dark scenes. I think the reason for this is the reflected ambient light coming from the screen itself. With this PJ, when the screen goes totally dark and you have Iris set to On, you almost get near perfect darkness. This also assumes next to zero ambient light in a tightly controlled dark room. Not a deal breaker given all the other qualities of this PJ.
