BenQ's HDR Tone-Mapping algorithm is actually really good, and makes for a very punchy image.
FYI: i don't own this projector but have the chance to play with it for a bit, along with a TW9400.
As a comparison, Out of the box and on same screen - The Epson gave 40nits @ 100% - after calibration, but the epson 0% is significantly lower and gives around 22000:1 contrast (which i expect can get lower again in a fully dark-treated room)
There are things i like about both units - the epson dialed in easier to near P3 and has a more filmic look to it. Whereas the BenQ is sharper and I like the HDR tone-mapping more. (i think the love child of these 2 units would be called the Sony VW570
The BenQ firmware has only just been applied so i want to take a better look over it as they've done something to CMS as the old values don't look quite right anymore (especially contast setting, which looked good on old FW, but looks blown out now).
Also, after applying the FW all settings go back to Default.
