After reading through basically this entire thread (might have skipped the last 20 pages) I've decided that this'll be my first PJ.
I'm contemplating buying a deal with the projector, ceiling mount and screen for a decent price.. well considering everything is way overpriced here.
The deal also gets me 15% off calibration by one of the most experienced calibrators in the country, which is pretty tempting.
I have a few questions though..
Some info about the room:
3.49 m long (11' 4")
2.55 m wide ( 8' 4" - the usable part of the wall)
Distance from the PJ to screen is about 2.7 m (8' 10"), and I've settled for a 92" screen.
I won't be able to buy it for a couple of months, but I doubt I'll be lucky enough to get one with FW 1.06 (or newer).
If I get mine calibrated, and I end up with a unit with FW 1.04, won't the calibrated settings be saved? Also, what are your
thoughts on calibration in general, is it worth it? If I end up getting it calibrated, it'll be with an emphasis on getting as good
a black level as possible, which leads me to my next question:
My living room currently looks like this(little has changed in the past two years):
My ceiling is white, and the walls are more of a white-beige, and as you can see by the windows I'll need to buy some new blinds
in order to have any light control. I realise a brightly coloured ceiling and walls will affect the overall IQ and black levels in particular.
I'll mostly use the PJ at night, and new blinds will ensure the room being shielded from outside light sources. Will the walls and ceiling
completely ruin the picture for me?
I'm also a bit uncertain about which screen type (white or grey) I should go for. From what I understand the W1070 is a very bright PJ and
a grey screen could possibly amend some of the IQ loss I'll experience due to the walls/ceiling, but will it affect 3D negatively?
