    I would agree with their assesment of contrast ratio being one of the most important specs as far as picture quality goes.

    I'll say here what I said over in the AVS thread. I shot both the X1 and a Panny 200u LCD on a matte white Da-Lite and a white blackout fabric screen. The 200u image's looked nothing like what they show there for LCD. Something's not right with those images. I remember what the raw, out of the box images looked like on both machines and both the DLP and LCD images were very, very close in PQ. I infact prefered the black level of the LCD over the DLP.

    That article is scary. I had my heart set on a lcd pj, main reason was because of the rainbows. But I'm more concerned with blacklevel and from reading that article it seemed like DLP was better all the way around except for the rainbows.

    Ron's assessment of the Pannys is what really lead me in that direction. But what the article says makes since when it gives reasons as to why DLP out weights LCD. I don't know man, this kind of puts a monkey wrench into my plans.

    And then again Ron's screen shots look beautiful, so I just don't know.

    Obviously there is something wrong with the pictures. The lcd picture from Final Fantasy shows with a blue hue to it whereas the same image from the dlp has a gray hue to it. If both projectors were properly calibrated then the colours would be the same on both samples and if one projector had a better displayed contrast than the other projector then the one image would show better shadow detail than the other one would, end of story.

    This weekend I will try and locate that Final Fantasy scene and take a snap-shot to show how 'off' that LCD pic is. It's sad when things like this come out and they do not accurately represent the image. Heck look at the black levels between their FF pic and mine from Moulin Rouge. Other then calibrating my 200u with AVIA, shooting onto a light gray screen and massively reducing the pic size of Satin, no other alterations have been made to my pic, it represents the true image colors.

    Yeah, I seen that on your site Ron, and the one with the crown on her head is really pretty, it made me think I didn't see that part of the movie, because I didn't remember it looking that good [​IMG]
