Yes there is a huge different in the second video. no match to the oled with it's much better blacks. The black floor on all the LK projectors are really really horrible (just the honest truth).
But I just wanted to show just how bright and great this projector does with 4K HDR, IMO it's just as impressive as my OLED beside the black floor. The contrast is really good and this thing is ULTRA sharp.
So here are my professional thoughts, okay average Joe thoughts
First the things I don't like. It's sorta loud, and I can see it being distracting for some. It's about 5 or six feet from my seating and I can hear it easily.
NO 3D!!! I'm a bit bummed that it doesn't do 3D. Yes it has the button for it on the remote but it doesn't do anything and there's nothing for it in the menus.
I wish there were more settings for tweaking the projector,. It has all your basic setting that you would normally find but not many advanced settings.
Motion isn't that great (sometimes). In some content the panning is a little jerky and there are no settings in the projector to address this.
Finally the blacks. I have been following the LK970/990 threads for months now, I've read every comment and have to be completely honest. The black floor is TERRIBLE. Plain and simple, see second video above.
Okay things I love.
The brightness is incredible!!!!!!! Colors are rich, contrast is excellent, image is extremely sharp! Did I say it's bright? I'm projecting on a Dalite 2.8 HP 159" screen and IT'S A TORCH. It's so bright that I can't watch it in normal mode at night. I'm actually considering selling my screen for a normal 1.1 white screen. It's just as bright as my OLED. I kid you not. It really is like having a 159 inch TV, it's truly unbelievable in that regard and exactly what I wanted.
4K HDR looks INCREDIBLE. I'm using a Nvidia shield for streaming my Plex library and not using any other equipment, so no hdfury vertex/linker needed. Standard HD looks great too and the 4K up conversion works really well. Colors are really good out the box. I haven't done any tweaking
GAMES!!!! OMG I've been playing Forza 7 in 4K HDR 60FPS and my mind is blown. Again it looks like I'm playing on a 159" HDR TV. NO LAG that I can detect. Halo 5, SC6, GOW4, Assassins Creed Origins, Injustice all play and look incredible with no perceived lag.
With all that said I don't have a dedicated theater and If I did I would not buy this projector for it. In a completely black theater I believe there are better options more suited for that environment. Mixed content looks great on this projector but when things get dark things get ugly fast. Blacks are horrendous and it sticks out like a sore thumb guys (see second video).
