  1. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Hey y’all! I have had a Sony KDL-46XBR9 as my daily driver since it came out. I am finally in the market to get a new tv and I am very interested in going with either the new a90j or the g1 Oled. My only question is how much of a brightness reduction should I expect to have from this old lcd to...
  2. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I notice that Optoma's entire lineup tends to be brighter than peers. Why is that the case? I have an HD27HDR which is getting up there in bulb hours--currently at 1375. I've never been happy with its black level, and can only tolerate it because of a grey screen. My problem in shopping for a...
  3. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I’m seriously looking at an Epson 3800 vs the Benq 3550. Both would be ceiling mounted. From research, and ProjectorCentral, the Epson is at 0 vertical lens shift at the center of the screen, and would require approximately 26” of vertical lens shift for my ceiling application. The Benq is...
  4. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi All - Im brand new to the projector world but I know its time for me to make the switch. I have a large family room area (25.5 feet long by 14.5 feet wide and viewing distance is about 23 feet) and it does have 2 decent size windows that let a decent amount of light in. I currently have a 65"...
  5. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I am a bit confused on how a projector's brightness is calculated or advertised. As a reference, I am checking the image brightness in Projector Central on 3 different projectors. I wonder how the image projected have different brightness levels. Epson HC5040UB 2500 lumens 20ft 43fL Epson...

    Netflix & HDR settings I have 2 TVs, a Sony 900F and the other an LG UM7300. The Sony can hit a good peak brightness, the LG not so much. While HDR content from Netflix looks nice on the Sony 900F, overall HDR brightness is very dim on the LG UM7300. To make things worse, the LG is in a fairly...
  7. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Just wondering, "Has LCD/LED TV technology improved significantly in 4 years?" I purchased a Visio M65-C1 in February 2016. Looking at paper specs it seems like new technology like QLED things have not really improved significantly, like about 25%. I know it is an unfair comparison since...
  8. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    My theater room was built for mounting an NX5 behind the back wall 21 feet from a 135” 16:9 screen with 1.1 gain in a black room. Helpful commenters suggested I explore a ceiling mount closer to the screen for more brightness. I just learned that would cost $1000. Would I be better off...
  9. Display Calibration
    Q: Are they for sale any longer? I checked on Amazon and cannot find any! Is it assumed that LED and newer display technologies "don't need" either basic adjustment or calibration?
  10. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I need to purchase a 75" TV for my garage which acts as a workout room (I use it daily watching movies while working out) as well as entertainment for my teenage son who is bringing friends over (playing video games, watching TV while playing ping pong, working out, etc). I am in Northern CA so...
  11. Display Calibration
    I've calibrated all my displays to 300 cd/m² for years. I've tried getting used to a 120 cd/m² display, but after using multiple bright devices throughout the day (iPhone X, PS Vita, Nintendo Switch) it just looks dull and boring. I don't have a dark room either. If I buy an OLED I'll be...

  13. AVS Forum® Articles
    Recent advances in TV technology have resulted in flat panel displays that offer extraordinary contrast and brightness. The latest TVs excel at creating captivating imagery, even in rooms with ambient light—which is how most people watch TV. Under these conditions, no display can offer...
  14. OLED Technology and Flat Panels General
    I've just returned from an extensive briefing about the 2017 LG OLED TVs , including the opportunity to evaluate the flagship W7 for myself. In preparation for the event, I posted an article asking AVS Forum members what they want to know about the W7 . I'm working on my review of its...
  15. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    Hi, I'm having an installer help me set up a home theater. And, I am in love with the reviews of the JVC DLA-X700R. My installer initially had advised against it because the projector is not that bright (1300 lumens). It will be installed in a basement area that can be easily made completely...
  16. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Can someone please help me understand why a 1600 lumens (HD65) projector calculates at almost the same brightness (ft Lambert) as a 3500 lumens (HD25-lv) given the exact same placement. Does the resolution somehow effect the brightness of the projector? I was planning on upgrading my trusty...
  17. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi! First timer here, I want to get a cheap Epson for my living room because of my fear of rainbows. However, what i find really strange is that the EH-TW570 (maximum resolution of 720p) and the EH-TW5200 (1080p) are priced almost exactly the same in my country. As far as i can see the trade...
  18. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Sony VPL-40-es at Best Buy Magnolia I have had several older projectors (dating back to early 90!) including one from around 2000 that was rated at 2000 lumens. It was not very bright but was a very old bulb with high hours. I replaced it and it was not noticably better and in fact the whole...
  19. Display Calibration
    Hi all I am trying to calibrate my TV using the AVS HD 709 disk, but on basic patterns chapter 1 I never see bar 2-17 blink. The test says to adjust brightness until bar/line 16 does not flash, and bar/line 17 barely flashes. No matter how high or low I set my brightness and backlight I am...
