I have not seen a LK952, but I have seen 3 LK970 in 3 different rooms and with their ~1000:1 contrast just look terrible and washed out grey in any sort of dark scene compared to even an Epson which has ~5000:1 contrast.

Picture is bright and sharp on eco mode. Space scenes appear black and are not distracting. I watched scenes from Tron Legacy, Edge of Tomorrow, Star Trek Into the Darkness, and The Dark Knight rises. I much prefer this projector over the JVC X790R.

It looks superb when paired with my Dark Energy Pulsar screen. Now I wondering if I will get any discernible improvements in picture quality if I go with the LK 970? Any brighter, better contrast, etc? One drawback is the fans are loud in both eco and normal mode. I'm wondering if the LK 970's housing is any quieter? After five years of upgrading through multiple projectors from different technologies, this laster dlp is definitely my favorite thus far. Won't be able to rest until I know what the LK970 looks like when paired with a good alr screen!

Have you posted pictures of your room?
