I agree with you on the contrast, which is why I'm looking forward to taking an Epson for a spin on my next projector upgrade. But the brightness uniformity? I can't see any fault with it - movies look pretty amazing on it. It's about 13 feet from my screen which is a 138" curved 2.35:1 AT screen. It's plenty bright and the image is pin sharp. DLP is not awful by any stretch, but when you compare it to the Epson, for example, you can definitely see the lack of black levels, contrast, etc.
