You'll have to post the statement "in entirety" for review, because there are / have been too many times that a partially posted comment was/ is taken wholly out of context.
The "only" reasons I can imagine for you saying I made any such statement is because of a "substantial off axis" comparison...or a improper PJ positioning, which would be the only reasons for my saying such. And if so, by purposefully neglecting to mention such, the entire statement becomes misleading.
Without the actual quote being published, please do not attribute comments to me. Statements attributed to someone via memory alone cannot be held up as being accurate.
So just to be fair, "I" took the time and effort to go back and review my postings of June and found that on 6-20-17, on your Thread tied to specifically promoting your "Easy Ambient Light Rejecting Screen Paint" over the DEA screen, I posted thus:
It is totally impossible for myself, someone who has years of experience judging both perceived image quality (via photos) and actual image quality (via in-person observation) to believe, let alone accept that what is shown above would allow anyone to determine the image on the left ...which is NOT the DEA...unless a significantly under-powered PJ placed in a inappropriate manner is being used... represents the better image. Sadly...that just might be the case.
....which as a matter of fact turned out to be exactly what was happening. Your posted example was weighted in favor of your painted example, and specifically intended to lessen the performance of the DEA. You posted the examples without labels, and solicited opinions from readers as to which they preferred. I weighed in with my judgement, but qualified my choice with my suspicions that the examp0les as shown were being offered in a biased way...and when you stated you PJ's position as being one that was specifically not favorable to DEA, those suspicions were confirmed.
It seemed strange then, though not so much now in retrospect, that you'd match up two screen surfaces that have such a differing Throw/PJ positioning characteristics....and such vastly different costs. I can certainly see why though, as your paints have never showed promise as far as White brightness & Color vibrancy before that time, so only when shown compared to something performing at a lessor level (ie: at a disadvantage) would they seem better than they are.
Not as strange was the comparison between a >$800+ Laminated Screen and a sub-$50.00 paint, because the intent was to bolster the impression that any such larger expenditure was essentially unnecessary.
So...I encourage any / all who care to do so to go HERE
and read my post in entirety. You might even want to read the posts by all concerned, going back and forward a page....if for no other reason but to put the comments you seeing here in proper perspective.
