You should be concerned with the colour.
Please measure and try and calibrate brilliant colour mode!!
You cannot pat BenQ on the back for something that needs to be fixed. It looks incredible to you, sure, but its not near accurate at all (measurements will immediately show you why) and should be solved with some kind of fix, which I 100% believe they are capable of.
If you keep telling them they did such an incredible job they will never fix it and then who wins? Acknowledge the real situation, the Brilliant Colour mode is not accurate but if you dont use it you lose 50% of the lumen output. With Brilliant Colour on you lost 30-50% of the colour volume required for the lumen output it is making.
Please look at the red square for all these charts. That's luminance. I gather this is directly related to colour volume if deficient?
Blue is the only colour which is fine, can guess why
Please measure it and see! Also Dave, I am the only one who has done this so far, I would actually love it if you could please corroborate with my data, like I said, I am not a professional, but this is the only display and only mode ive run into where its impossible to calibrate because of lack of luminance. So other people confirming that its a real thing would be good. I am 99% sure it is though. But more than one set of data will cement the situation.
I am really sorry to be a buzz kill, but for any projector costing over $5000 (or even half that) this should not happen. Fix one or both of those problems and its excellent start. Imagine how amazing it would really be if it could actually hit the proper colour volume for the lumens. Right now it seems to be up to 50% deficient.
