Depending on how much you know about calibration this might not make total sense but these results aren't that bad.
In the first graph you would prefer to have the red, green and blue lines be flat and right on top of each other.
In the next you would prefer the blue line to be straight/flat at exactly 6500. Higher will look blue....lower will look red/warm.
The third chart shows gamma response. This is a very good result and mimics BT.1886 and is partially responsible for the good shadow detail. This is with the iris OFF....I turn it off for calibration and then back on when I am done.
The last chart shows color response. Technically you want the little colored dots within the nearby square boxes but this is also a good result for an entry level projector when I didn't touch the CMS (Color Management System).
Wow thanks for the graphs, they seem On par/better than the ones on projectiondream. I have'nt bought my calibration tools yet (xmas and all). But that's much better than I would have excepted from a Display a this price point, consistency and all, they actually look like they care
Good for us!.
There's that slight blue push you're seeing but appart from that your unit seem really good. My first one was definitely green, but that unit had something going on for sure as it was dead after 4 hours judged DOA by Epson. Sure there's room for improvement. But I can see why it would be a plug and play choice for many. Even if you can buy calibration tools (for the price of one Calibration) and learn pretty easily on the web.
The main concern of the 2040 that keeps coming back is CR compared to DLP's but I'm pretty sure calibration and the right screen, while not making it higher, can help preserve as much as can be from the source,(see how I chose my word. Yeah I've been reading a couple of threads these last few days/weeks
). It'll never be a JVC but loss of CR can be controlled. (that is true for all PJ)

I did compare 2040 to calibrated BenQ w1070 side by side the other day and I must say that 2040 is the winner in every level. Better and sharper image, w1070 had a little warmer and deeper colors though but I'm sure that 2040 can increast that also with a calibration. Almost likewise black levels, 2040 a little better in some scenes and w1070 a little better in others. But 2040 had more sharp and details in dark scenes. There I thought that w1070 would be alot better so I will stick with 2040.
I loved everything with it, but wished a little better black level. But now when compared I won't let it go, this is a great unit to a little price and a new lamp for almost nothing.

I was thinking of buying the w1070 based on all the good reviews posted on here but then epson went crazy and released the 2040 and put it at 525USD (699cad) for cybermonday here in canada. Where the W1070 still is almost a canadian grand. Epson sure kicked Benq in the groin on that one. So for 300 buck LESS I picked up the newer LCD model not knowing if we're RBE sensitive.
I have read that most of us in the under 1k are either poor"ish" or cheap. I'm not poor and and I dont think my friend would say I'm cheap, but I work hard and a lot of hours for the money I have, as most of you do, so I like to have the best BANG for BUCK I can. If that make me cheap then so be it. I have to say that, at the price I paid It's hard to argue with the 2040. Seriously appart from the vivitek 1186 there nothing EVER in that price range (500 usd).
I'm quite pleased so far with the epson and can't help myself thinking that there must be a huge amount of biased infos on here (yes I know there is!!! Even if you won't admit it, It's almost as bad as Apple Vs Pc, seriously grow up people.) I have to say also that some of you are honest enough to give credit when it's due and I applaud thee.
I Still Will buy A BENQ either w1070 or 2050/3050 to judge it by myself (yes I'm stupid that way) and will keep the winner it'll be in the HT for the next couple of years. Then if we figure we like it enough (front projection), it'll be replaced by a much more expensive one (WAF and all
BTW. I already know that I like it enough

I do get that thing with FI. I turned it off, as I was starting to doubt my eyes. Let me know if you figure it out.
BTW. Regarding Black levels, I'm at my In-Laws for the holidays and my father in-law has a philips LCD (yes I said LCD) with superb contrast and black levels (for a LCD) but the overall picture is unwatchable.
