Really appreciate the inputs.
Just Curious. What screen are you using?

I ordered the same screen and hoping its more than bright enough. And like Amatching said, make sure its not upside down! It rejects light from the top, so if it were to be placed upside down, you would get a very washed out, bad image.

I know it sounds like a dumb comment, but make sure it's right side up. The image would be really dim if it's not.

I would recommend, long term, to fit to the screen by manually moving the projector. I believe if you have smartfit on, there were some levels of the projector that are disabled. It's going to be tedius but worth it in the end.

Just thought I would share. Picked up the unit today and you can definitely hear the high pitch noise. I don't think it's the fa. I don't know where it's coming from

Optoma P1 and XY Pet Screen

Hi there all,
Just found this forum and a great time for it. I should receive my P1 in the next few days and I'm having a screen problem. I had decided on a 120" Elunevision Aurora UST screen, but there are two problems. The first is that delivery seems to be weeks away (some kind of delivery issue) and the second is the price...holy crow it's expensive! So with that I was investigating other screens and saw the XY Pet screen come up a few times and it appears a few of you own it. So...I guess my question is how is the screen? Quality, value for money, and most importantly the image itself? I know the P1 is just trickling out, but any info on XY screens would be very much appreciated.


Thanks!

I like the xy screen. They mislabeld the stickers that shows which side is down. I had invert the screen and now it looks awesome. My only worry is tht the projector is at 15” away instead of 10” for a 100” screen. Is it because of the height. It sitting at a height of about 16” and the bottom of the screen is at about 36” from the floor.

Any updated images under same lighting conditions now that you’ve corrected it? First impressions and thoughts?

Looks great. I noticed you've got the P1 sitting on the floor. How high is the projected image from the floor?

Indeed, the color vibrancy you seem to be getting just off the wall has me feeling good about deciding to postpone any decision on buying a screen for the projector until I have first put hands and on it and tested it out on a bare wall.
