I broke down and purchased a refurbished 6040 last week:
My sources are an Xbox One X and a Shield TV 2015. I have exactly one 4k BR (GOTG2) to play with, plus Prime, Netflix etc. Projecting to a 110" screen w/ 7.2.4 Atmos HT.
Like most of you, I agonized over the lack of [email protected]
HDR, 4:2:0 vs 4:2:2 etc. Being new to the 4k scene, I wasn't aware of the dark journey I was soon to embark on. I should note that I am a retired engineer by trade and as such, I am quite comfortable with computers, electronics and "Honey, the sink is clogged.." scenarios.
Oh, it started out small...reading a few, no make that hundreds of posts in this threads to the point I now need more carrot juice. Then it moved to small tweaks, a little more contrast here, a touch of color here...well you get the idea.
But I is wasn't enough, like a junkie I needed more. Here, I found the "pushers" I needed to satisfy the demon cravings (Harper, oledurt..I looking at you)...
It became sure madness, I tell you...I started to became obsessed on what the projector info screen told me. I would cry out in my sleep "Nooo, it can't be SDR, I want HDR at 60.."
Finally, after an intervention from family members (OK, my wife and the neighbor's dog), it became clear that I needed help. "Hello, my name is..." comes to mind
(sigh) I guess finding the sweet spot on this projector, is like chasing for treasure on Oak Island..(Yes, there is something promised here but it's elusive...).
On my way to recovery, I have become aware a few truths:
- The refurb price for this PJ nice to get into the 4K arena. I should be happy with this.
- The Epson settings out of the box are just fine.
- To reach enlightenment, I must look deep into my soul (and my wallet).
- 4K is really dead..Long live 8K....(Code Blue !!! Relapse in progress...)
