Interesting. I wonder if it would beat the VPL-VZ1000ES which is essentially a VW760 in a UST dress?Yes thats correct. The thin black line is the screen frame. The dark gray is the shadow of the screen and the lighter "halo" is the light bleed on a white wall. It's quite noticeable that even my wife asked about it and she usually doesn't notice these things. I've already ordered a replacement to compare.
Other than this issue, the picture quality is phenomenal. Puts my VW885ES to shame. With the CLR screen, it looks just like a huge OLED screen, especially at night.
I bet this puppy is quite a bit cheaper than the 1000 though, so that probably makes it a win in any case.
Those 700 extra lumens must give it some useful extra brightness.
