Doggie, where do you get thie "8 of out ten owners complaining" claim from?
Let's start a poll.
What do you think of this wording? Please feel free to suggest changes, I don't want a "leading" poll.
Poll question: "Does your HD25 or 131Xe have a "bad" lens?"
1st draft of wording:
Some owners of these PJ's are unsatisfied with the image, due to unacceptable focus/picture quality throughout the entire image area.
This usually is described as a "lens defect", whereby not all areas of the image are equally in focus i.e. if the center part of the image in perfectly focused, other area(s) are significantly "out of focus".
Please chose from the selections below, but if unsure please ask questions before voting.
Note: It's important that the projector is properly aligned with the image surface i.e. "square" with the screen. If you are at all unsure if your projector was aligned correctly, say so. Nobody will jump down your throat.
Screenshots are always good. You can move the menu around the screen, so take pics (macro mode on most cameras does a decent job of representing the pixel-by-pixel focus) of the menu at each corner, plus the center. See post 879 in the 131Xe thread for ones I took of mine.
Also please post your screen details, throw distance, source material and cabling.
If you've had correspondence with Optoma please post it.
Thanks for participating in this poll!
Sound good Doggie?
