Viewsonic PX800HD with a BCP120 Screen
I have investigated this combination for months, and was never able to find anyone that had posted, reviewed, or commented on the combination of these viewsonic products.
So after months of investigating individual reviews on the PX800HD itself, the BCP screen itself and DNP Supernova STW screen that it really is, I finally decided to put the combination together myself.
I have attached a couple of pictures for those who have been waiting for this combination as well. Ref: both pictures were taken in ECO bulb mode and the standard color setting.
This is the 4th projector I've owned, and some quick points of interest about this projector:
Excellent color depth
Light level when combined with the BCP (DNP) screen is good to moderate ambient light as long as the content is not to dark (ie, good for TV (sitcom type) shows, not necessarily movies)
Squareness (a UST measure I just made up) is much better than I thought it would be. No keystone like adjustments were necessary.
Brightness uniformity, unnoticeable error.
Light Halo effect. There is substantial haloing around the screen. I was able to defeat it by building the entertainment system you see in the picture and using flat black to kill it. If you do not do this in a dark setting you will see a light ring around your screen and up to the ceiling.
Fan does not run a cool down cycle on the bulb when shut off. My first projector (year 2002) did this and I went through bulbs like popcorn....... hope that's not the case hear
All in all (for the price) excellent projector, and an excellent combination with this screen. I think the BCP100 would actually be a perfect match as the 120" screen stretches the lumen output a bit to far for true ambient light viewing. But I'm coming from a 135" screen and was not willing to reduce anymore.
