  1. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I have a pitch black room but it's not treated meaning white walls and ceiling. Budget is not an issue but I don't want to overspend as I've been told I wouldn't get the full benefits with something like JVC. If I get the Epson, will I be able to see the difference (in terms of contrast /...
  2. Ultra Short Throw (UST) Projectors
    I was considering getting an Epson 6050ub until I learned that the nice contrast and black levels from these devices won't be noticeable unless you have a theater room with black walls and ceilings. I have a pitch-black room to myself but can't change the walls or floor/ceiling. I was wondering...
  3. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    This is my first post ever on the forum and I am definitely still in the learning phase for home theatre, but here goes. So, I bought a 60 inch 8g Kuro (LX608a) less than a year ago. It’s beautiful, it’s great. However, through endless research into “reset guides”, “voltage tweaks” and...
  4. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    This is in no way going to be a proper review as I don't have the time to write a thorough analysis, just an information dump and overall impressions. Here is a very good review of the NZ8 by Steve Withers that covers most of what I won't cover. I'll focus on detailed measurements and my own...
  5. OLED Technology and Flat Panels General
    So I just placed my order for an OLED65B7V through an LG program I have through work so I thought I'd start THE thread. Having read the Forbes review of the W7 and seen the difference in price on the Sony A1 I can't imagine the Sony will be good enough to make it worth paying the extra, so it's...
  6. Screens
    So about a year ago I purchased a projector screen from XY projector screens on alibaba.com and was relatively happy with the quality of the screen(at that point I was more worried about it lying flat because my last projector screen had ripples). The problem is the screen I told them I wanted...
  7. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hey, I'm new to the projector community. I got my first home and bought an Optoma uhd50x for the basement. The basement has no ambient light leaking into it due to blackout curtains I installed on the basement window, but it does have a white ceiling and very light brown walls. I ordered a...
  8. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I am looking at potentially buying the new Samsung LSP9T UST and a Grandview 120” ALR screen. I have a 65 inch LG OLED in another room, but I would like a secondary bigger screen. I know the black levels and contrast of the UST will not be close to the OLED, but it is really difficult to...
  9. 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...
  10. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    With the same configuration in a projector, would changing the Light source affect it's ability to spur out better Blacks or better contrast? say the HT3550, having a Lamp, LED or Laser source with the same Lumens affect it's color tonal output? I've read a few reviews showing laser type pj's...
  11. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    First of all, I apologize if this is not the correct subforum for this topic. I spent several minutes looking at all the sections and did not see a more suitable place. Recently, I got a new VA monitor. On websites and applications contrast is fantastic. But when playing video (YouTube...
  12. Display Calibration
    Beginner: Differences in contrast, dE between MobileForge & AVS & pattern sizes Hi, first time posting, long time reader. This year I did a deep dive into color profiling for monitors, printers, and scanners for a photography project and in the process acquired an i1Display Pro and i1Studio...

  14. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I am upgrading from the Sony HW50ES to the VW285ES. At first I was very excited and had no hesitation at all about the upgrade to the new 4k projector. However, after researching the 285 thread thoroughly I see several little issues that the 285 possesses that have me concerned and I would...
  15. High Dynamic Range (HDR) & Wide Color Gamut (WCG)
    I've been looking for an answer to this everywhere, but have not found anything concrete, and have just been left scratching my head. What are the best general rules to setting the contrast settings for HDR content? Should contrast be cranked all the way to 100? A little lower? It seems like...
  16. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    ou you watch TV with the lights on or with sun coming through the windows? Most people do. If so, TVs that offer superior bright room contrast—like the latest LED-lit LCD HDR models—often look best in that setting. Click the link to read more: Do It With the Lights On!

    I have a choice to mount this 14 ft from the screen or 19 ft. (I have limited options) I want the screen to be 140" diagonal. will settle for 120, but want 140 The room will have very low ambient light, but still - some low ambient light. Seating (from eyes) to screen is 12 feet. I prefer to...

  19. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    (1st post ever. Moderators, please move to the appropriate thread if a specialized one exists.) I'm trying to calibrate my 60 inch H7150 panel for movie playback using the Spears And Munsil disc, but I'm stumped at the very first step of trying to dial in the contrast setting. The test picture...
  20. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hello, I was wondering what some good options are for a projector that has a high contrast ratio but not necessarily high lumen output. There are definitely some decent projectors under 1000 that have fair contrast and a ton of brightness compared to a few years ago but I haven't been able to...
