I spent good time tweaking the projector with my liking. Initially, I was watching only Exodus for testing purpose. It has some noise image here and three. So I just got stuck into that and kept on trying to get rid of it. Thx to
, he cleared many issues for me. He is a great help among others.
Then later I watched Oblivion. Then I watched The Hobbits the five armies. Oblivion was great but it did have a few scenes with some noise. Again Seegs assured me that it was the movie. Today, I watched the Hobbits. Woooowwwww. I don't even know where to begin. This movie looks absolutely spotless. Great image. Absolutely stunning. I thought that Sony 600ES was sharper but not anymore. The image in this movie over and over and over again just kept blowing me away. It is so good that it puts my televisions to a shame. I think only LG Oled can really stand above this projector (based on my experience).
From the beginning, I was very impressed with the contrast of this projector even though I am running it on -5. But I had my doubts about the sharpness. I even felt like I might not like this projector due to its sharpness. Now, my opinion is completely changed after watching Oblivion and Hobbits specially. My only concern with this projectors is that it will not make watching any source that much enjoyable that are not good in quality. Its just so good with good material that bad material will automatically look that bad.
So far, its just Mind blowing.I read some reviews about those playing around with 4K.I wonder how amazing it will look with UHD sources with 4K players. It will surely be a treat watching 4K on it.
For those who are deciding if they should go for Sony 4k(the models equivalent to 600es), I can telj you based on my experience, if the material is good, there is simply no comparison b/w the two. JVC is miles ahead of Sony.
