Have you guys been happy with this projector? Can any of you lend some light on your calibration settings?
I compared it (again) to the Epson 9700UB and there was still no comparison.
The black levels are slightly better on the 9700, but there is no comparison against the Epson with brightness and clarity of the image. The Sony can match the brightness on the Epson, but it tends to wash out the image (a good comparison is turning on a light). If you decrease the brightness on the Sony it produces a good image , but then you lose the pop of the image and detailed artifacts when comparing directly to the Epson.
For instance I turned on the Black Knight and at the beginning of the movie when the two clowns are in the room and break out the glass the black on their shirts tend to completely gray out and blends together with the black bars. The Epson at this stage produces a lot of detail in their shirts which the Sony is completing lacking.
I tried matching the calibration settings from these two sites:
I am seriously considering the Sony for my next projector.. I too have a Optoma HD72 and think the picture is pretty good for a 720p entry model.
Is the Sony really that much better? I have a 106 inch Dragonfly high contrast fixed screen that I would be using with it along with a blu-ray player. Its a lot of money for me but everything I have read about the Sony makes me want to get one.
