Hello,


I am the former owner of a Davis DL-450 projector, and would like to know how the X1 compares to it on several points.


1/ Rainbow effect

More, less or equally noticeable ?


2/ Screendoor effect

Same question.


3/ 480p/i display

The unofficial X1 FAQ provided me with the answer I was looking for.

The X1 has a mode where it will center on-screen the 480p/i signal and do a 1:1 pixel mapping.

Which is what the Davis does and what I was looking forward to.


I suppose that the X1 blows the DL-450 away in luminosity and contrast, but feel free to add any comment about comparing the two devices !

1. Rainbows are much worse on the X1


2. Screendoor should be about the same


3. The advantage of the X1 is that it does not need an HTPC for great res


I was thinking up upgrading my DL-450, but after working with Davis tuner I managed to increase the contrast and picture quality greatly, it is really worth a try before you upgrade.

As i former Dl450 owner i can say, that the sound coming from the dl450, does the difference. The DL450 is loud, very loud. Tried building a hushbox, but i didn't work and looked stupid.

I don't think that the X1 is a better pj, but it is more silent. I went for the AE300 and i'm a happy guy now.

If you insist on DLP then wait a few month an see if something new comes around

I preformed the DL-450 noise mod, and it made a difference. If you are brave it is something to think about.

Dam .. That could be a showstopper point for me.

I could already notice them on the DL-450.

If it really is much worse on the X1, I may not be able to bear with it. *sigh*
