i been reading something about panasonic having convergence problems? ....and quality issues with the sony ?
i like contrast/film look
rainbow effect makes me nauseous.
Of the two, the Panasonic offers more all around performance for value....and dependability.
I've read a lot about the Sony having both issues you mentioned...but very little about the Panasonic having convergence problems. However I would be remiss if I did not relate that a couple years ago I received one that did have a Panel "WAY"
out of position. But it was replaced within 3 days by Projector People and it's replacement, along with about 10 others since, have had no issues whatsoever.
Projector People is a great place to do business with. Contact Kirk Ritari @ ext. 2002
and tell him you want the Panny 4K Package that MississippiMan (Maurice) uses and he'll give you a special price on both the latters. (inc. Chief RPA 181 mount and Peerless ACC570 Ceiling Plate...)
screen - diy 110-120 AT spandex ... i am a little confused - do i get the miliskin matte silver on black ... white on silver ?
thank you for any help
Milliskin all the way.
White on Black will give you the better Black Levels
White over Silver will give you a slightly higher gain level...very acceptable Blacks. (...most used combo...)
White on White is highly advisable if 3D is to be absolutely as bright as possible.
Silver over White will produce the deepest Blacks of all, and the most perceived Contrast. Great to use if your optimally mounting the PJ (close throw)
Mount the Panny at 12'-8" for maximum effect with it's Lumen output. You did not mention anything about C.H.I. 2.39:1 / 16:9 so it is assumed that 16:9 is your primary interest. Go 120" diagonal (...the Throw recommendation above is based on that premise...)
