BTW, I am finding Kevin's suggested Sharpness = Detail = 0 and MPC = 3 settings to be generally very good on most material. That said on some grainy films (Like Hang em High in spots) had me reaching for the remote to turn down (and ultimately turn off) MPC at least for some noisy scenes.
I too have a couple corners brighter than the others but if look at the 2nd pic from the service menu it's imperceptible (IMO).
Also to some of the earlier comments and concerns with regards to convergence, keep this in mind... most who voice their opinion/concerns on this forum are the one's having the problem. Case in point if you review the RS50 thread from last year there were a few of us (including me!), doing the loudest shouting. This year I've been pretty quiet so what does that tell you (no wise cracks from the elders!).
My convergence this year is near perfect
FWIW to some of the "prospects"... every projector has its flaws, including this years version... it's just to me they are overshadowed by the improvements and new features which are fantastic
Lastly in terms of 3D ghosting I think I am on to something
as I was watching the ND vs. FSU game on ESPN3D (which looked pretty bad)... when I found the worst ghosting scene I could find and paused my DTV DVR I found by tuning in my Parallux setting by one click either way I could see the ghosting align itself much better to the image through the glasses! The game was almost enjoyable after I did this. I wonder if this has something to do with various screen sizes?? It may be moot on BD players (like my Oppo which already has a screen size setting in the menu), so I'll have to do some more testing, (by all means Jon or Gotch or anyone else, please play around as well and share your thoughts here), but I thought I would at least share my hopeful finding.
So far Geoff I am having a hard time moving off of MPC=3 now because I feel like I'm back home in DLP-LAND!
