Also, I HIGHLY recommend a HP screen with just about any projector. This Sony is very bright on my 2.8 gain 159" HP. So bright that I watch everything with the lamp set to low (except for 3d of course) and it's still plenty bright. 3d is also very bright on my HP. I find the glasses set to 3 gives the best mix for brightness and blacks. Glasses set to 4 is a very bright on my HP but blacks and contrast take a hit.
what about the 3d performance, depth and popouts, ghosting, crosstalk flickers etc?
my second question do you use HP screen in living room, because i heard for a dedicated ht/ cave the best solution is 1.1 gain white screen (all walls and ceiling dark). i thought hp screen is not very suitable for a cave
thank you and kind regards
