OK, an update on my replacement unit REVISION
, manufactured in June
- it comes with the latest 1.0.1 firmware out of the box.
Good news: CAs are much
better controlled compared to my previous unit.
There is still a bit too much of them than I would have liked, especially when compared to UHD300X, but when keeping in mind the disaster which 01-100 unit was - let's consider the problem solved.
In terms of resolution / sharpness, the lens is still rather soft and seems to even a bit worse than in 01-100 and definitively miles behind UHD300X still - at least there are improvement in terms of CAs though... (ignore slight color difference, different camera used):
The projector is aslo even quieter than the first one, I can't really hear XPR pixel shifting engine (silent mode makes almost no difference) or iris at all - only soothing hum of the air moved by the fan.
So you might think that possibly I am happy with the improvements and maybe even keen to keep this new unit, right?
This could be very well the case if not one khem... 'slight issue':
Entire left side of the screen has this weird rainbow artifact, this seems to be coming from the lens or some other part of optical path (does not change when playing with image options / modes)....
Seriously, BenQ really need to get a grip when it comes to QC, this is just ridiculous.
Third time's a charm?
