Those are uncalibrated, out of the box shots (except for sharpness +3). Normal processing, Mode 1.
The pillars are slightly more obvious in person, but mostly because we watch TV with the lights turn up a bit (my wife likes to read while we watch). I haven't felt a strong need to mask it yet. It doesn't bother me at all for now. Under no-lights, the side bars as just barely more obvious than letterboxing.
We are very happy with the screen size. The 16:9 size is equivalent to about 110" diagonal. This was about the biggest 16:9 we would have done anyway due to ceiling height constraints... I then just added the extra width to get a scope screen.
In retrospect, I wish we had used 2x10's for the riser instead of 2x8's. As it is, its JUST tall enough for an adult in the back row to see the bottom of the screen with the front row not reclined.
As for screen door, I don't notice any... even right up close. I can actually see the weave pattern of the screen material more than any SDE. I really have to be within 2-3 feet to see it well. First row is at about 11 feet, second row is about 17'.
