I quit reading your stuff a long time ago like many others I know.
Again, thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas.
I am not commenting on the 5000ES am I? And I would expect the difference between the 5000 and the 995 to be negligible because they are the same chips, lens and processing board. One is just brighter than the other, so what differences were you really expecting??
My comment still stands, that people that are thinking about buying a 995 with a screen that is over 10' wide that is not high gain may want to be sure they have enough light output. My screen is 11 feet wide and I am getting a PEAK white at mid throw or less of about 24 fL. Does HDR look good? Yes, because I have a tone map that compensates. But what does a guy that is buying a 12' or wider perf screen have?? High to mid teens?? So again, my comment is VERY valid and not a bash on the projector at all.
I could really care less about you reading my reviews, or if others don't like them, that is your prerogative. My entire point in this thread was to inform buyers and owners so they don't make a bad choice in screen size with this projector. Had absolutely ZERO to do with the quality of the image. I've read too many times your over bloated sense of generalities of "it's great!" "it's awesome" "try this picture mode that looks fantastic though I have absolutely no idea why but that's okay because I think it looks great and so do my friends!!!!". Some people obviously appreciate that. I would rather make sure that instead of random subjective superlatives that if I see someone post something that may be misleading in implementation, I make sure that some FACTS get out there. "more than enough light output for a 12-14 ft wide screen" is misleading. This projector has more than enough for that size screen for SDR playback, but HDR would be capped off in the mid to low teens for fLs unless you are talking about a high gain screen (which most don't have at that size, most use perf or weave designs with less than a 1 gain).
I could honestly care less for your opinions on anything Joe, especially projectors. And I could honestly care less about how you feel about my subjective comments on anything. But you're also someone that does ZERO objective analysis of ANYTHING. You don't even have the first inkling on how to do an objective review or measurement. So until you can actually measure something, don't start throwing stones at me for trying to HELP prospective buyers/owners of this projector with measured information. If you actually knew anything about this stuff, you'd have understood immediately that I wasn't trying to slam this projector at all. But here we are, par for the course again.
