Ok, I have the Lumagen Mini 3D for about 3 weeks now. It's a great piece of hardware and I really enjoy the aspect ratio management, which was the main reason of buying it, in the first place.
I hired a professional to calibrate the Benq with the help of the Lumagen few days ago.
I think there must have been an error somewhere, because when I play videos from my Oppo, I think there is a red tint.
For instance, when I press the info button of the Oppo the letters don't look white to me, but SLIGHTLY red.
This makes the faces look a little bit more red, than what I was used to (Benq was calibrated from the same professional before without the lumagen). I'll call him to come back to see if something strange has happened in the process.
Other than that, there is an obvious change in contrast. The picture (other than the issue with the red tint, which for sure is fixable) is way better in terms of contrast! The image looks stunning, comparing my previous calibration.
I also, use the enhancements of the Lumagen, which I don't know if they help in perceiving a better picture, but I think I prefer them over Darbee.
Also, in some movies the Adaptive Contrast at 1 is nice, but not a set-and-forget setting like Darbee or the other enhancements.
I'll definitely recommend a Lumagen, which really pushes the limits of BenQ. I would really like to create a mechanism to make the ceiling black during movie watch as the next step!
