I'm having a hard time deciding between the two and appreciate any input you may have.
I'll be installing the projector in a brightly lit room with windows on the side of the projector - this is not ideal I understand. I do most viewing in the night (thankfully I'm in Seattle and it gets dark early most of the year). I also have a plasma TV behind the screen for day use also. I also typically like to have some lights on during the night viewing.
The HD25e seems to be slightly less bright than the 25-LV but a cheaper to buy and maintain - I'm not sure the extra lumens would be worthwhile in my viewing conditions.
1. Is the HD25e close enough in terms of brightness to the HD-25LV that it shouldn't matter in the viewing conditions I mention?
2. Is the HD-25LV brightness configurable - would I be able to dim in down and up as required - the concern would be that it is overly bright @ night viewing.
3. Would the HD25e be quieter than the HD-25LV - It seems both of them are very comparable.
Thanks for your help in this!
