OK, just asking, did you change between dynamic and regular mode just to see?
We try to make subjective observations mean more by verifiable content. There has never been a PJ manufactured near this price range that can exceed 4000:1 at those brightness levels.
If it were true, it'd be in the same category as DLP's costing $10,000+ (except this would still be brighter), and some of those slightly even over $5k ones are .95 and DC 4. There are some LED's with higher on/off, but talking UHP lamp based DLPs. The version of dark chip is one of only numerous things that affect DLP contrast, just adding DC 3 gives a bump, but not a huge one, the lens coating and light containing elements in the lens and coated mirrors matter more.
No Benq DLP has done over 2000:1 to 2,500:1 NATIVE on/off over 1000 lumens that I have ever seen.
Yes there have been some whacky measurements showing such, but other people that measured with reference level meters did not find the same result.
So call me a skeptic, and I'm sure this PJ is a nice one, but let's come back to earth
If this PJ can do 4,500:1 on/off, I will buy it just for the high DLP on/off, heck that's getting near Marantz levels.Edited by coderguy - 1/3/13 at 11:12am
