Curious what owners of the HT1000 recommend for the NEC HT1000. Would the Pearlescent be too reflective for this projector? I have an HT which is completely light controlled.


Thanks for suggestions.

As blacks don't need much help on this projector, I chose a 1.5 gain Video Spectra screen from Dalite. It is electric and can be stopped at any aspect ratio, eliminating the need for masking. It extends to 4:3. I like the punchy picture. Grey screens, for me, and you may feel differently, seem to take away a certain amount of three dimensionality (did I just make up a word?). That and my wife really didn't like any of the grey screens we previewed with different LCD and DLP projectors. I suppose we like our white to be white. When you stop down the contrast to 3000:1 you're getting a really vivid, dynamic and 3D picture.


Well that's my reasoning. I urge you to preview different materiels or go visit some setups in your area and see what suits you and your family.

Thanks for your answer Glenn. I see that the gain on the Video Spectra is the same as the Pearlescent. Any idea how these materials compare in other respects?

I am wondering... does the higher contrast of your screen eliminate the blanking area of the projection that is slightly visable on a higherb gain screen?

Hi Ralph,


The Video Spectra fabric is backed and used in non-tensioned screens. The Pearlesent is used in tensioned screens. In my application the thick screen materiel allows me to turn on lights in the room behind the screen giving me a nice backlit effect which heightens the perception of contrast.

I'm very interested in purchasing thi pj I want to use a 92" diagonal HD format.

I know that this pj is native 4:3. I want to be able to watch 4:3 material in the middle of the screen with black bar on the sides is this possible? or my only choice is to get a 4:3 screen.

I want a big movie teat her not a big tv.

You can either buy a 16x9 or a 4x3 screen. The question is what will you be watching more, TV or movies and not what your projector is.


If your system is mostly for dvd / hd viewing, then get yourself a 16x9 screen. If you are going to watch a majority of tv viewing, get yourself a 4x3 screen

Hi,

I'm considering upgrading form a LT150 to the HT1000.

I'm currently using a Da Lite Hi power 16:9 screen in a table top mounting set-up. Have someone teamed up the HT1000 with the hi-power?

regards,

Josesol
