ok, 104 hours on the 9000, and time to check hours again. I decided to pick an iso-tech 1337 meter from RS electronics. these are well regarded and thought not sure re my meter thought best to pick up something a bit more decent like this.
anyways measurements below, shown as LAMP POWER & Color mode(EDGE : CENTRE)
in fc so need to multiply these by screen gain which in my case is x 1.1 to get readings in FL
ECO & THX, (18 : 22.5)
NORM & THX, (22.5 : 27.5)
NORM & Living room, (51 : 63)
ECO & Living room, (37 : 47)
NORM & Dynamic, (70 : 87)
ECO & Dynamic, (53 : 65)
ECO & Natural, (18 : 23)
NORM & Natural, (23 : 29)
ECO & Cinema, (18, 22.5)
NORM & Cinema, (23.5, 29)
so in the case of mode am using. ECO & THX with my 1.1 screen gain factored in am looking at 19.8 FL at edge and 24.75 FL at centre.
note screen is 92" 16:9 and throw is 4.5m
anyways hopefully gives someone some real world output measurements.
also to note have seen no noticeable or measurable drop off in brightness as yet with 100 hours on the clock. will measure again at 250 hours and then 300 and so on track how it goes and to gauge when start to see some drop off
