Hope you keep enjoying your GP10 for a long time.....
just wanted to know a few things from you:
How big an image do you get from the projector and from what distance are you using it?
How is the focus across the entire image for the size you are using? any focus issues beyond 100inch, although you did mention that its a little blurry "at" 100inch....?
Is the remote responsive or is there any lag between pressing a button and its corresponding effect?
Is the lens made of glass or plastic, can you tell??
How good is the contrast and image quality according to you?
lots of questions!!!
it would be great if you could make a longer video of the projector in action and share it with us....may be it will clear my doubts in one shot!!
Thanks a lot!!! And congratulations on your new purchase!!!
I have a room with only 2.7m long but I'm still able to get a 102 inch giant screen from 2.5m. This is the only reason why I choose GP10 among of those 500lm LED projectors(k330, Pled 500 and Optima ML500) , definitely the throw ratio is much shorter than the rest.
The focus ring(I don't know whether can it be called as focus ring) is a little bit tight but it doesn't sound bad (Good quality?) . I felt there is a little bit blurry on 100 inch but you still can balance the focus on whole image to get an acceptable sharpness, but only noticeable on text reading such as browsing internet, no problem on Movie. I don't know how does it compare to the rest of competitors such as LG, Acer and Optoma but heard that most of those LED projectors are having focusing issue as well.
Remote is quite responsive, although the navigation effect of the main page is a little bit lagging.
I don't know whether the len is made my glass or plastic, how to differentiate? Will it impact the overall image quality?
The image and quality look very nice in the darken room especially gaming and acceptable with some ambient light interact with it. Just like those 500lm LED projectors but maybe slightly better. Of course my Plasma TV still looks better :P
GP10 doesn't have a lot of tuning on image quality unlike LG and Optoma(heard that optoma and LG have sharpness setting). And until now I can't even find the option to configure auto source searching. But it might be the way to eliminate the HDMI signal drop issue(although I haven't tested HDMI input yet).
Forget about the HDMI audio in to the projector and out to your external speaker, the quality of audio out from this projector is really unacceptable. I'm still dealing with the BenQ tech support to resolve it.
Heard from the distributor said that the K330 are using second grade of DLP chip which is not as good as the DLP chip adopted by GP10, she said GP10 is using first grade of DLP chip, but I highly doubt that where did she get the information from.Edited by beloncfy - 4/9/13 at 8:18am
