Did some more testing with the UHD51 today (note: it's the Euro 51, not the US 51A, but I think they're the same base). I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but the projector doesn't seem to be saving my image settings. Keep having to set brightness to eco, cause it keeps defaulting to bright when I turn it on.
Tried some 1080p sources today, and compared to the W1070 (going off of memory, since the W1070 is in the box now), the picture looks a lot better. Much clearer image, and I'm getting more depth to the image than I did with the W1070, with the same source.
Funnily enough, I did not notice the artifacts I described for the 4k image with House of Cards streaming yesterday. and I had yet to change settings (other than brightness), so not sure if the issue I saw was with 4k only sources.
Running a 0.8 gain screen (Euroscreen Greylight), same as I had with the W1070.
mentioned, I'm using the exact same mount as with the W1070, didn't need to move it, as it aligned well with the screen straight up. Can also mention I had to use a modest amount of lens shift with the W1070, but the UHD51 aligned well with almost no lensshift at all. I don't have actual numbers, but I could unpack the W1070 and check how far I'd turned the lensshift if there's interest.
I didn't recieve the UHD Blu-rays as expected today, so no testing with those yet, new arrival date is on monday.
