Like many I’ve watched certain scenes multiple times and have a pretty good eye for what I am looking for.
The NX7 is a better projector in every way over the X790 other then contrast. If I was upgrading from an older projector and had the choice to purchase either projector I’d pick the NX7 every time.
Thanks for explaining that.
The main reason for my post in the other thread, was to report what I was seeing, given the often rare situation where direct apples-to-apples comparisons were feasible. And to be honest, I was pretty anxious beforehand, knowing how my stomach would just sink if I ended up being disappointed by what I saw. I was hoping for, half-expecting, a reasonable amount of improvement, not just some subtle change where I have to convince myself that something is better. But this was clearly not the case.
And that's why I just watched that same GOTG2 scene the next morning, just on my RS400, the same as usual, and it once again looked just fine, as it has for the last several years. Not as much 'pop' as I get with my Sony 900E, but that would be no surprise.
But then when I turned on the NX7, the RS400 just seemed pale and lifeless in comparison. I'm very much a student of human perception, and find this stuff fascinating in its own right!
Anyway, not trying to convince anybody to do or not do anything, just trying to provide some hopefully non-hyperbolic, rational, reasoned observations, to assist people in their decision making.
