It's been a while I did not post in this thread. I am still happy with my Sony HW50. It is a great projector but I miss my VW95 for the quality of his lens and motorize zoom and focus compare to the HW50. I think I may buy a refurb one when AVS will have some in stock. The best option for me will be the upgrade model from the VW95... But It look like it wont be until the end of the year. As for the better 3D in the HW50, it's the only thing that make me keep the projector since the 3D is very good on it. For the RC, in the beginning I was impress by the RC and after a while I found myself distract by how the RC modify the image. I then turn the RC down, and down, and down, and finally off Now I only use the RC for 3D.
One upgrade that I like the most is my new Lumagen Radiance XS-3D. "Influence" by Zombie post in this thread I decide to buy one and try the Chromapure 125 pt auto calibration. The result is awesome ! In less than one hour, the XS and Chromapure do all the work and give you a near perfect calibration. I know I have all the control on the HW50 to do a separate calibration but in the end it's more complicated and time consuming. Also the Lumagen have all kind of options to help you with your image. For exemple, I copy my calibration setting to another memory and from there modify couple of things to make the image better suit for sport viewing. There so many things that can be done with that machine, I am still experiencing...
That's it for now, I will continue to read this thread, it's one of the best around here... Keep the good work.
can you please tell us whats the problem with RC? thank you
