I'm not a native English speaker so there might be lost in translation, but my question was very simple. Have you seen Z1 picture by yourself or your argument is totally based on opinions or numbers posted here.
Other thread is about how to calibrate Z1 in HDR and I'm not seeking any argument.
Oz is one of the first if not THE FIRST in Australia to own one. And he's had a lot of projectors through his room.
I know you've had no issues with yours either being one of the first in the world to own it - in Japan.
I am guessing the guys who are happy with the Z1 are somehow placing the projector in a sweet spot and using the settings that somehow makes the deficiencies less noticeable.
