The first thing that I noticed was the absolute sharpness/clarity. It was like my old screen needed a prescription for glasses and my new screen is the glasses. In terms of screen texture, I looked really hard for it and the only time I could discern any texture was during very bright scenes, like sky scenes with clouds, but it was only noticeable if I was looking for it.The next thing I noticed was the improved HDR brightness. My screen has about 600 hours on the bulb and has definitely dipped down in terms of brightness. But with the Cima, it's like I have a brand new bulb and HDR really pops now. Based on what I saw, I think this unit is definitely closer to 1.2 or 1.3 in terms of gain vs the 1.1 gain reported, but that is totally a good thing. The third thing I noticed was how deep black levels are with this screen. I had good black levels before, but with the Cima, they are at a whole new level. In addition to great black levels (and great contrast for that matter), colors really pop on this thing as well. Honestly, it feels like I got a whole new projector this screen is so good. I expected it to be an upgrade, but I didn't expect it to be this much of an impact. I think this screen is easily worth twice or three times what it costs, it really is that good and that's no exaggeration. I wasn't realizing my projector's potential without it. That much is clear to me now.
I’m thinking of upgrading from my Silver Ticket 120” white to something better. Is the Cima Neve that much better? Now that I’ve upgraded my projector to a JVC x790 - I’ve got the itch!
