I havent been on the computer since the Martheaplexx is now under construction to accomodate the new PLVZ1 Projector. Unforunately My unit has a stuck blue pixel and is being swapped out tommorrow (when I picked it up I didnt get the chance to check for stuck or dead pixels.) So far I have watched at least 3 minutes of clips from each and every DVD I own. It looks amazing. I have watched two whole movies on it so far. Harry Potter ATCOS and 8 mile. Both Movies I thought were great for Black level. I am very surprised at how well the Z1 performed. One of the best investments I have made so far. I am at a loss for words on how happy I am with this projector. As far as the screen goes. In the past 3 days I had off, I have tried 3 different screens. One Blackout cloth unpainted. Another Blackout cloth painted rustoleum silver. and I will go into detail in a little bit on the one I currently am using. Cut it short by sayin the silver painted Blackout was the best but I am not at all a great painter and could not get an even enough coat. Plus the Blackout cloth had a little texture in some area and was visible during movies. Plain Blackout was good didnt really take notice. It was the first screen I tried and was in awe of the projector and excited that I was a new owner of one. I found this new stuff while picking up some more Blackout to go back to Plain. I didnt get the Blackout. I ended up walking out with something else. Because of the hassle of painting I decided to just ask them aout gray fabrics (Joanne's). We perused through a couple kinds and most of them had to much texture. Then she pulled out some stuff that ha some zip to it. It was this Gray Nylon stuff. Very tight thread and very light. Had a nice sheen to it. Not light charcoal with sparklets but light charcoal with a sheen. I am using this stuff now, and it looks great! Just thought you guys might want to take a look Ill get the model number tomm. $1.69 per yard! I will still explore different materials but for now I am VERY happy with this one. I LOVE THIS THING AND WILL UPDATE PICS ON SITE ONCE EVERYTHING GETS DIALED IN. Couple questions to Z1 owners. This thing runs hot. Anything I should be concerned about? ...... Is it possible for you guys maybe to share some settings?! Screenshots on the way also. Hey Ron hows the projetor coming along? I havent been on much lately (for obvious reasons) to see what was up with your project.
