Just set up my X35 yesterday and for the most part it looks absolutely fantastic compared to my old VPL-HW10. There are a couple of issues I wondered if someone could shed some light on:
1. In 24p I've noticed that camera pans are incredibly blurry, but not so much at higher frame rates. This is with Clear Motion turned off of course (can't stand the thing), so is this exactly what I should be seeing?
2. I find that WIDE color space is extremely saturated so I've taken to turning the color space to OFF, which looks pleasing to my eyes. However, Black-and-White footage looks very purplish to me unless I set color space to WIDE. Not a problem if I'm watching B&W films, but it's problematic for films in B&W and colour!
3. This is the only real issue I have: In 24p the projector emits a high-frequency ringing noise that is driving me insane. It's constant throughout the use of the projector and wherever I am sitting/standing in the room (or outside the room for that matter!) and it is loud enough that I can hear it constantly regardless of what I'm listening to at whatever volume. Seriously, it's like someone firing a sound tone directly into my eardrums.
I've noticed people have experienced this problem and reported it at earlier points in this thread. Funnily enough most people seem to report the ringing when in 50/60p modes, but in my case it only occurs when outputting at 24fps! Has anyone who has experienced this issue later found the noise to dissipate once the lamp has settled in enough? It really is robbing me of any enjoyment I can possibly have of watching 1080p/24fps footage as I've always been very sensitive to ringing (it's like I have a bad case of tinnitus when watching Blu-rays).
