Do you notice better blacks in light controlled conditions with the HCCV? I got mine (not up yet) to improve blacks, but not to help with ambient light ( I have complete controll). Same size screen as you with LT150. The samples from Da-Lite seemed to show a marked improvement in the blacks and so thats why I went with it. Your PJ has a lower CR than mine ( on paper at least) so I would suspect that the HCCV would be a big help with percieved blacks.
Thanks for the feedback. I will post a review of the HCCV when I get a chance to view it. Should be up in 2 weeks. I hope I didnt get the wrong screen. If it doesnt meet expectations then I guess Ill get to see if Da-Lite stands behind their product and lets me exchange it for a CV. Those samples they give are just too small to make an informed decision.
You mentioned the color shift. Seems to be two sides of that fence. Some here claim there isnt a shift and some claim there is. I have no technical or real world experiance in this field to draw on so I just take it all with a grain of salt. You mentioned that you in fact do notice a shift and that you adjusted your color settings to account for it. Question is did this correct the issue or is there still a problem?
My review will be an A/B of the HCCV vs my $40 DIY screen using blackout cloth (I think it is).
