The 60Hz is not just for gaming, as it's been noted above it's also required for some streaming services/boxes.
The literature says that the more zoom is used (closer to the screen) a projector uses the less sharp it will be. But it's probably not applicable to the projectors mentioned here. Maybe with lower end models.
Agreed and good point yes it's only the 4000 series that has the limitation
Neither of the projectors seem to have a problem with lens quality. Both have proven now to me that they can resolve a 150" screen and they both handedly max out their zooms and can still resolve just fine.
I'm still on the 3LCD boat personally.
Now that I have both mounted on the same screen, I'm seeing that even though the Optoma's lumen output beats the epson on paper, in real life the whole talk about people's colors getting washed out is starting to make sense.
During the day, the Optoma just isn't quite as bright as the Epson and the colors can't pump the lumen output. Contrast is good but the picture looks like my Epson on Eco mode even though the Optoma is going as hard as it can go
At night, then I find out how much work the Optoma had to do to match the Epson during the day.
I watched Star Wars - Rise of Skywalker and I was so disappointed
Several scenes to note and maybe someone can help me tune my 50x colors
1. 50x's yellow looks like mustard. What in the F**k? The red looked like wine but I figured out how to tune that up and blue a bit too. Even the title of the movie came out tinted too orange in spectra
2. The contrast sucks. Why does my contrast suck so hard? I can't even get a 2006 monster ISF DVD to show me the black contrast X so I can ISF tune this machine? The Epson tuned to this just fine and it actually helped. I know it's not a modern disk but wow it should pass something from 2006 with flying colors. Darks are washed out and so are whites from the very get go
3. The HDR I don't think is real and Red/Blue just didn't pop. There were scenes with R2D2, 3PO, where their lights look like red and blue jolly ranchers on the Epson. Looks like red or blue from a low contrast TV on the Optoma. Where is the color punch?
It ruined Lando for me too which I was most upset about. On the Epson, you can see his age and wisdom spots and his light skinned complexion came out perfectly. It made the moment where he showed up memorable.. The Optoma had him come out like Trump wearing orange paint. His skin was stained by the mustard yellow which I still can't understand why that specific color is so much off compared to the Epson.
I feel like if I can fix the yellow I might improve the PQ quite a bit
I'm on a white wall too that I painted with high gain satin paint myself so I'm not getting interference? Same wall now for both machines but one has a weird Yellow. Will try to get a side by side since I have them both up now.
