    I have a sceptical friend who doesn't believe that modern LCD projectors are bright enough to use in any room condition other than total darkness. Anyone know of a link to pictues of projectors running under various lighting levels to provie my friend wrong?


    Thanks

    I don't have any pictures, but I watch sports with the lights on with my Sony HS-10. Movies are certainly better in the dark.

    Jason,

    The HS-10 is actually the projector I'm thinking of buying, which skeptical friends think will be too dim. Of course they haven't looked at an LCD projector in years, but that's besides the point. How far do you have your HS-10 from the wall, and what type of screen are you using?

    Thanks Patrick

    Patrick,

    My throw distance is 13.5 - 14 feet, and I'm projecting onto a 92"x52" (106" diag) DaLite High Contrast Matte White 1.1 gain screen. As long as the sun doesn't shine on the screen, it's fine for TV. I watch TV with the lights on and Cinema Black on. For movies, the darker the room can be the happier you'll be.

    HTH,
    Jason
