have you ever seen "The Naked Guy" episode of "How I Met Your Mother"? You don't need a dark room, just use this guys strategy. 'Works two out of three times!'

Never seen anybody as excited about a white rectangle as you Mark. \:\) Enjoy!


As with most good things in life, it is much better with the lights off!



If this weren't so damn shaky (for low light ) you could see my "Precious". But for this, I guess it just shows that your view is consumed with 1080p.

...and some music


I'll try to get some better screen shots, but that does not show much so don't wait by your screen...Mark.

Well, in case anyone is still checking this thread, I'll report in: Simply put, F'n love'n the projector. I'm guessing there is minimal difference between the big hitters in this low price range, but damn the size and clarity is impressive. The picture is so clear, even at 118" from 15 ft, that I was able to move the sitting position closer and make some room for a second row when crowds show up.

Hoping to get some color tweaking and saving done this weekend, but Normal is damn fine for sports, and Cinema 1, (created by some Hollywood guru) is very good for softer film-like images. Cinema 3 is actually a tad better for that razor sharp HD feel.

Anyway, looks great, sounds better without the TV and stand in the room, and so far no problems with the screen or the PJ. Next I paint the walls red all the way up, and the ceiling a 50% red. Then we sell tickets!

Well, I owe everyone watching this an update on one specific point: motion blur. My old 50" Samsung RPTV never had problems with motion blur, that I noticed. But I had some initial fears about motion blur on sports with the Panny 3000. I dismissed them later, but my worst fear has come true: footballs moving fast don't look right. I have not wanted to test this issue on reruns as I don't know the quality. But last night on Monday Night Football (on a Thursday) I saw the dreaded motion blur on long passes. I need to try it with the various frame correction modes tonight as the Saints play, but damn that smarts. I really didn't think this was an issue.

Not a deal killer, still a brilliant picture, but would prefer the picture window did not remind me it was fact every time the ball went more than 20 yards.

FWIW, when I first got my DLP, I saw rainbows. I don't anymore... as a matter of fact, I stopped seeing them after a few weeks.

I don't have any explanation for it, other than maybe my eyes kind of got used to it. I'm sure that the DLP didn't break in, and I'm sure that my eyes didn't get broken in. I think somewhere along the lines, my brain stopped looking for it or something. That was almost five years ago.

Before you get too bummed, give it a bit of time and see what happens. It might just be that you were looking so hard to see it.

And don't let it ruin football for you by watching too closely.

It's not like the Saints have a shot anyways!

Thanks for the update I was wondering about that myself since football is the only U.S. sport I watch anymore.

I’m still holding off on making a purchase partly to see if anything interesting is announced at CEDIA but also since I’m waiting to see when the Sherwood Newcastle N R-972 shows up here on the Axiom site.
