I wish there was more consistency in the screenshots. It seems like there are too many variables that change to have opinions of your own.
I've been researching my first projector purpose and guess a bit bitter that it is almost impossible to check out some in person projectors before buying them. It seems like buying a car without taking it for a test drive... doesn't make sense.
I've been looking forward to the AE2000U reviews (and thinking seriously about making the purchase when possible), but the comparison between the HC6000 and the AE1000U on the LOTR screenshots makes the AE1000U look pretty bad in comparison. The AE1000U image is not only softer, but also darker in general, with less shadow detail visible.
It makes me wonder:
1. Were the projectors were calibrated to the same "measure" for lack of a better word?
2. Were the lighting conditions and camera settings (exposure time) identical?
3. Is it just me, or is there a white line around the black figure in the HC6000 image? Is this an upscaling artifact?
