Some of you may have read my thoughts on the X1 during the free "evaluation" period. I saw the screen door effect, and I quickly gave up on FP altogether. After I slept on the idea that FP was "evil" (because of the SDE) I decided to give it just one more try. This time, I put the white sheet on a different wall, and sat even further away than I did the first time. I was sitting exactly 16 feet away from a 115" (16x9 Screen). The results were absolutely MIND BLOWING! I am a true believer in FP now. I can still see screen door effect from 16 feet away, but only when a movie shows white. Any sort of white (ie. clouds, flash-lights, etc.) Other than the SDE which I can see about 10% of the time now, I am truly in love with this projector. I also have an issue with the black colors though, but more on that a little bit later. I have a question though. I hooked up my DVD player via S-Video because I don't have that adapter that it requires in order to hook it up via Component. The picture quality was simply astounding. JAW-DROPPING! It looked just like a theatrical experience. Now here is where it gets really weird. I popped in a VHS tape and started watching VHS and it too, looked A M A Z I N G! I don't understand how this could be. At 125" (4:3 mode) VHS should have looked awful! Is there something wrong with the projector, or is there something wrong with my HDTV? I have a Mits 65" Widescreen HDTV. Sony NS700P DVD player hooked up through Component cables. Have watched hundreds of DVDs and VHS on it, and here is what I have noticed. VHS looks "alright." No where near as good as it looks on the X1. DVD looks simply jaw-dropping on some DVDs while on others it looks completely unwatchable. For example, "Charlie's Angels 2," "Willard," "2 Fast 2 Furious," & the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" all looked HORRIBLE on my TV. Absolutely horrendous. While other titles look amazing (ie. Matrix Reloaded.) Viewing those titles on the FP (115" Widescreen) they looked incredible. FAR better than what they looked on my HDTV. Even the worst "unwatchable DVD" which was "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" looked stunning on the FP. Here is the question: Is the X1 FP actually covering up important detail like compression artifacts, mosquito noise, ect. because it is not an HD projector, or is there something major wrong with my HDTV? With my TV, I notice all sorts of problems with certain DVDs. I can easily see compression artifacts, etc, which I can not see AT ALL on the projector. Maybe the projector is hiding all of these artifacts or my TV is actually introducing them on it's own. Maybe these artifacts are not even there to begin with. Using the X1, even the WORST titles looked "reference" quality however, I want to purchase a different one, and I need your guys' help. I want a projector that will give me roughly the same size image that I was viewing with the X1. I want AT LEAST 115" Widescreen but would "prefer" 150" Widescreen. I also want a projector with a better "black" level because most of the blacks looked "gray" on the X1. I also want the projector to have closer pixels (isn't that what causes the "screen door effect?") Does DLP (Like the X1) have pixels that "die" like LCD FP do? Which "type" of projector is better/best for my needs? Oh, and I would "prefer" to have a short-throw projector, but it's not 100% necessary. I had to put the X1 SOOOOOO far away in order for it to create an image that size. If I wanted a larger image (ie. 150") I simply would run out of room before it actually projected an image that size since my room does not allow it. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
