Someone should tell Arrow to stop measuring contrast above 1.5% ADL. Apparently anything above 1.5% doesn't matter at all and he's just wasting his time.

That's what's called our perception... our perception of the world isn't the same as any objective truth... and you obviously don't even understand that.. perhaps back to kindergarten for some basic science lessons?

oh, hows that giant grizzly that attacked you feel like? Exactly like that teddy bear you have?

No, I would say it is relevant from 15% and down, but the importance increases as you go from 15% to 0%

Exactly! I think the same marketing department that did those Tide commercials is marketing for coolgeeks screen.....and he believes it!

Ok, I'm done having fun with coolgeek. Sorry I sunk to his level for a moment, but that was too much fun.

Of course I was being sarcastic. But even if contrast only matters below 15% that still favors the Sonys on a lot of material. I certainly notice darker blacks and better pop on my Sony than my JVC on many bright and mixed scenes (certainly not all, since the way a scene is mastered is hugely important).

If they were both calibrated, then the differences are small. As I have always said, the good projectors look a lot more alike than they do different. It is usually only until you get to the very low ADL scenes that you can see any difference.

How cool, one of my posts is being misrepresented.

For the record coolgeek, I found the JVCs produced the best images for the overall content we saw and with material I am more familiar with appeared better balanced. If I recall correctly the JVCs color volume capabilities are more robust than the Sonys as well, or the very least one of them. We did some back and forth comparisons and the Sonys were bright but lacked the color depth of the JVCs. Now without the direct comparisons the color differences are not dramatic enough to declare the Sony(s) are grossly inadequate but to my novice to projectors eyes I prefer color, shadow detail, black levels, and native contrast over sheer light output.
-I believe to recall that the auto-iris was disabled for all the projectors and assuming so the raw black level reproduction abilities of the JVCs were very evident.

If there had been more time it would have been interesting to see how the Sonys performed with external tone mapping processed by a player instead of the Sony's raw tone mapping abilities.


Again as it stands I felt the JVCs provided a nice balance in performance and the Sonys produce a nice image as well, factoring out certain issues that were present during the shootout, and those that have made that purchase still have good projectors.


At least in my opinion as someone who does not own a projector nor will not in the near future; so I give zero figs about any given brand and price is not a factor since I am not in the market.



Politics is like a corral, no matter where you are you'll always be shoveling it.

Contrast differences in bright scenes are certainly less obvious than contrast differences in dark scenes, so overall low ADL contrast is more important. If I could only have one projector it would be a JVC. There, that should make the experts here happy.

The leader is always decided by the owner, everyone picks what is best in there mind but it does not make it so for the next guy.....Chevy VS Ford for example......
