I say if - there are folk who are blind to all kinds of image issues. My theory on this is that their brains are wired in such a way that they can't easily look past the content on the screen. My wife is one such person - for almost any issue to do with PQ I can pretty much guarantee that I can't get her to see what I'm talking about.
Interesting, I spend a lot of free time looking at video especially testing new builds of MadVR and maybe it is my setup but I do not see sparkles. Maybe once in 40 hours of viewing I will see something but I will take that with the advantage of brightness for HDR etc and Experiencing the movie vs worrying if it is too dark etc. I have had a lot of screens and see a lot of video from other projectors and my ST130 is the best I have had. But too each their own, that is why they make so many. Everyone should test them out instead of hear-say.
