Well it looks white but it does not look sharp. For example, the - bar on the letter T supposed to be 2 white pixels wide. But when i'm trying to focus the picture the - bar becomes either washed out a little bit or becomes 3 pixels wide. So the picure is never sharp.
From a distance (3.5m from 120inch) this looks sharp but it's not. It's like blinking with your eyes every time to look if it's sharp.

I'm using a PC as a source. So that might explain it. But when feeding a 4k signal (is that the same when setting the resolution on the pc to 4k?) the picure becomes very blurry. I hardly can read the clock in the bottom right corner.
But when playing the "costa rica 4k" on youtube it does look great. But when playing 4k movies it just looks not sharp enough for some reason.
Also, upscaling 1080p with the image enhancement does not seem to do much. As this projector is native 1080p with upscaling to 4k, 1080p movies should be no problem.
Maybe i'm very sensative to these kind of projectors.

I'm not an owner of this projector (current one is the Sharp XV-Z30000) but I am considering it.
Thank you for the info.
Yes you can and also tried this extensively. But this has some very mixed results. What happens is the following:
When aligning you can align two or three colors. The green is fixed. So you can align the red on the green. The blue on the green. Or the red and the blue at the same time.
But, the line being displayed is not 1 or 2 pixels wide. It looks washed out. When i'm mis aligning the red for example it's a clear red line of 1 pixel wide. But when I align the red pixel line back on the green line the color becomes washed out. Like the red is comming out on the top of the green line but also on the bottom.
So no matter how much I align, the line always becomes washed out.
This unit seems better then the last one though. But unfortunatly this one also has a dead pixel...
Will try some more testing today. Never noticed this on my old Benq w1070. That one just looked very sharp.
P.s. some other projectors i'm looking at are the benq w5700 (but it's 500 euro more then the Epson so that's prob a no go.) and the optoma UHD65 which is 200 euro's more then the Epson (2200 euro). Prob will go for the Optoma.
