I bought my 695es used with 140 hours on the bulb and have now put another 300 hours on it. All I can say is I love the picture this thing puts out! The sharpness, contrast, black levels and wide array of color are just impeccable. I do find myself tweaking settings a bit between films, but nothing too complicated. I bounce back and forth between a gamma of 2.2 and 2.4, adjust the reality creation settings depending on the movie and sometimes tweak the contrast enhancement, though mostly set it to high. Otherwise, I have been sticking to a contrast of 85, brightness of 52, color of D65 (though sometimes I use custom3, which is a bit brighter), lamp on high, smooth gradation set to medium, clear white Off, and the dynamic iris set to full and 90. This is for 4K material, which is what I watch about 95% of the time.
