WOW!......That's really a nice unit. I got back in town and setup my Q750i without calibration, and have to say it's looks good, but not better the a calibrated SIM2 MICO 50.....however, it would be a keeper if I didn't have the Mico 50.

Could have bought this a few months ago for $600 but it had the wrong lens. I should have bought it and tried to make some money on it.

How does it compare to a 1.0 unity white screen? There appears to be a lot of texture if you really magnify. Is that visible at ~8 feet? You said hot spotting isn't a problem, but does it sparkle like a lot of the RPTVs back in the day did where you see a shimmering effect? If you sit in the middle of the screen, how is the uniformity, do the edges look substantially darker?

The unity screen is texture free. I could see the shimmery on bright scenes, which is always the concern with screens with gains. The uniformity was great from my sitting distance, didn't really pay too much attention to other seating areas to be honest. It was great in my cone. Screen was evenly matched from my seating distance. It was just occasionally it shimmered from very bright scenes. I was about 7-8 feet from the screen and it was a good spot for me.

I will, but my concern is there's no way to determine hours. All I know is it came from a custom installed HTR that was updated with a 4K projector. I set it up to get screen shots to compare to my calibrated Mico 50, and it looks very good. I called my friend who sold it to me, and was told it was used to watch movies for the most part, and major sports events like the super bowl, NBA finals, and world series games. I attached a couple of screen shots to give you guys idea of what it looks like with using preset adjustments.

It states it right above the lens. Mine is a 1.85-2.4, which is the standard lens. My others were the 1.56-1.86 lens, which is the short throw lens. I prefer the short throw lens

It doesn't have throw info. above the lens unless I need to take the face plate off to see it. I think it's long throw, because I had it setup approx. 16' from my screen throwing on a 110 dia. scope screen.

I guess Light output and color degradation will determine it's age. My Mico 50 has a counter.

What? Isn't it rated for like 60,000 hours or something?

I find that incredible that the machine wouldn't track or display the amount of hours on it.

Yes it's rated at 60k. I would love to know how many. I think it's pretty sad that you can't.

Size of screen and throw distance?

Try this:

Scroll on the menu to the lower part till you get a blanc space, it on the remote arrow right, right, left, left, enter.
if you do it with the right timing, should open the service menu.

I don’t know if it will work or not. Got it from a google search.

Edit: Don't bother. There are no blank spaces and it doesn't work when you try it on an item where there is no right or left choice to make. There must be another way.
