Following up on my story (I recently returned a W2700 July Rev because of a very regular split screen issue).
I watched two films in Blu Ray with my PlayStation 4 yesterday, with :
- Silence mode ON
- Brilliant color ON
- A non-Pro PS4
As per my information, the projector was set on 1080p 24p and the pixel shift was (supposedly?) not activated as I put the silent mode on. Sadly, I again had the splitscreen issue with this new model. It was, however, much more discreet and I didn't even notice it appearing. It was after a few seconds / minutes I saw that the screen was again cut in two, but it was sometimes even hard to distinguish, see image below :
On some images, especially bright plain images, it was easier to see like here.
It's a bit annoying for a projector that costs £1400, more than double what I paid the W1070 at the time. I understand (more and more everyday) how 4K is more complex with all its refinements thrown in (HDR variants, Dolby vision, etc), but despite all the wonderful qualities of the W2700, this is a bit frustrating. The only option my shop offered at the time was to replace it with an Optoma HD51, but I don't want the first chipset generation. I don't know what to do, except waiting for a software fix or new projectors coming up... The device is guaranteed for 6 years, so at least my mind is at peace.
