Is a little eye strain normal after viewing a projector for the first time.
Uh, not fo me it was not...? What p/j did you get?
at first you may get eyestrain due to the size of it, and if the projector is very bright, watching it in the dark room may cause eyestrain with very bright movies, or movies with lots of white or high contrast scenes.
Did you buy a single-chip DLP projector by any chance? Some people experience eye strain and/or headaches due to the color wheel that makes single-chip projection possible.
Brian, as covered elsewhere, I'd only like to add that if your sim is too bright, you can use a ND filter to lower the brightness, and also improve the blacks at the same time.
I just wanted to get as many opinions as possible on this.
My biggest concern with purchasing a DLP was possible eye strain and headaches. I didn't experience this problem when I auditioned the Sim2 HT300e but there was some ambient light in the room at the time.
As far as lower brightness, I honestly feel the picture could actually use a little more punch
I have yet to pick out a screen for this projector (using blackout cloth stretched over 1 x 4's). I am wondering what screen will best match this particular projector.
Are you using a HTPC or a scaler? If you're using a low-refresh rate for the projector input you can get strain and headaches from that.
No I don't have a HTPC or scaler.
I have been looking into HTPC's, scaler and digital noise eliminating systems like the Mosquito from Algolith.
1st on my purchase list is a screen to best match this projector.
My eye strain seems to be going away more each day.
I watched 9 hours of HD football yesterday and today I have just a tiny bit of strain in one eye.
