Quote:InCali, does Cory have any information on whether they will ever address the single user save problem and that menu that disappears way too fast without any activity? Also a signal in and out information function would be nice instead of that 1 second blip that you have to be quick to catch. I guess it is obvious I have been using my Epson for TV viewing lately. That has a proper menu and I could go on and on. Oh well, I suppose we ought to be glad what got what we got out of Acer so far. The picture still rocks and the 3D is killer. Avengers looked really good the other night.
Quote:I am not sure what your friend is talking about as far as screen color and wall color. Of course there is a relationship but screen gain is screen gain regardless of wall color. No matter the screen color, the gain or light reflected back is what you have to work with and the difference being in the darkest blacks and and whitest whites it can display. There is a lot more to this than what I can explain here but the best way to illustrate what your friend is talking about is to turn on the lights and look at the image being washed out. Reflected light from white walls will also have a deleterious effect with the only difference between that being the reflective properties of the screen. So a grey screen may be for some, I do not think I would be happy with it especially for 3D. That is just my opinion and I have not tried a grey screen. I am using a 120" 1.1 gain matte white screen and cannot imagine I would be happy with any image less bright than I have now for 3D viewing. Of course there are high performance grey screens but I am simply too cheap for that so I went room treatment route for better light control.
Let me see if I can sum this up. Whatever the screen color, the gain is pretty much what you can expect to see viewing content. Any screen that reflects less ambient light will reflect less projected light as a general rule. With the 9500 I believe you need all the gain you can get for 3D. There are good high performance grey screens but they can be pricey and even with them you always want to get good room light control for optimum viewing. Your mileage may vary but keep in mind lumens will fall off over the life of the bulb as I am sure you know so some reading in the screen section may be in order for you because there are people a lot smarter than I am about this over there. Those same people will probably tell you that the number one issue affecting the image quality is ambient light control or at least it is right at the top of the list. If I am wrong I am sure others will chime in here.
