Are all the objects in the movie perfectly shaped? (round is perfectly round.)
I think ack_bk and anthony fremont must be closer to the solution.
This is a puzzlement.

Sorry for the slightly late reply.
The white part is 48" from top to bottom and 88" from left to right.
As you can see there's a huge black bar on the right hand side, that's all my free white space.
Also I don't know whether you can tell in that photo but the image is very slightly wonky, in reality it's VERY wonky but I have a coaster under one of the back legs (the projector isn't mounted yet).
I'm confused then, don't know whether it's the screen or the PJ.
But I'll have to get a replacement from Amazon, after messing about with it a bit more I've just noticed on the left of the image is a 2-3" black bar down the side so it's looking like it's the PJ.
~ Paul Vail • 8 days ago − ⚑ An excellent review as always. I missed much discussion on the 2x color wheel and how this may impact those with RBE issues (myself included). The W1070 from what I've heard is a 6x RGB/RGB color wheel, while this model is a 2x RYGCWB color wheel. The inclusion of a white segment in the color wheel typically increases brightness, but leaves no way to color balance whatsoever when that light is added to the mix. This may be a serious contributing factor to the inaccuracies in color which are described in the review. As well, it is something I would consider a 'negative' about the projector which people should be made aware of. I think there are more than a few people who really want to see the W1070 vs. HD131Xe head-to-head shootout take place, but it seems like it really remains almost a toss-up as they are both excellent projectors with just minor differences. Certainly side-by-side people can see, or have pointed out, those differences, but for entry level home theater use, most people won't know they have anything less than a stunning projector. △ ▽ • Reply • Share › Avatar ProjectorReviews.com > Paul Vail • 2 days ago Good points one and all Paul, And I can't believe I didn't mention the RBE, because I am rainbow sensitive, and was definitely bothered by them far, far more than the W1070, or the W1500 that I'm finishing up right now. Well, I usually say at least once in every review, that first time buyers almost always say whatever projector they bought far exceeded expectations. That said, for those who expect to get "the bug" for hard core home theater, I'd have to recommend the W1070. -art
The above was cut and pasted from "Projector Reviews" with the reply by the respected "Art" himself...
Now here is my dilemma...I briefly owned the W1070 but returned it for 2 reasons...the first was that I found it was too noisy given that (in my room) the placement put it basically just above my head...and second because (in my room) the black levels just weren't good enough.
The black level thing I have now researched and believe (obvious in hindsight) to have been 80% down to projecting onto a white wall in an all white painted room. Light control (external) was 100% but light bouncing off the screen wall off all the other walls literally lit the whole room up like it was the middle of the day. I think I can fix this with a grey screen and a few well placed blackout drapes to "absorb the light" bouncing back off the screen.
So finally to my question...is the HD131xe better than the W1070 for blacks (really better) because this may tip me this way...if its marginal (after correct set up) then I think the colour advantage (which I suspect are slight after dialing down the BC on the optoma) of the W1070 will swing it...because it did look awesome in its colour rendition...
So the deal breaker is if RBE is worse on optoma because I could see it on W1070 but it was very subtle and only when I moved my eyes ...any worse though and I would have a problem with it. W1070 is a 3X speed RGBRGB wheel so 6X equivalent...
Would love someone who has seen both to dissect the above and give me a pointer on these areas.
Many thanks - and a very merry Christmas to one and all!!!
Ah you're a life saver, thank you! Resetting the image has corrected it, can't believe I didn't think of that myself.
