Ya I know... I was just yanking Nick's chain. I don't keep a balance on my credit cards and pay them off every month. Even though I really want a new projector, I'm not terribly excited over dropping another 5K, or any amount on another one right now and then going through the irritating process of trying to sell the old one. The one I have shoots a pretty amazing picture when I stop nit picking it apart. No worries about me spending money on wine Chess, I went nuts this past fall and my cellar is overfilled. I have bottles all over the damn place, 940 last count.

But Nick really does NEED a new projector and it's fun helping others spend money. smile

Oh I could SPEND the money, as long as I don't want any flooring in the basement... laugh

Pffft, flooring?

Flooring is way overrated Nick.

You have flooring Nick, just lay some nice stain on that subfloor, I am sure no one will notice the difference..

Yesterday I tried out the AE4000 rather than the AE7000 for playing Skyrim. Without even A/B comparing there was a huge difference. The Image on the AE7000 was much more colourful, detailed and had better shadow detail. Some of the shadow detail difference could be made up for by bumping up the in-game brightness setting to max for the AE 4000, but that only just brought it on par with the AE 7000.

One drawback I noticed for the AE7000 is that in “normal” picture mode even with the lamp in eco mode the picture is actually too bright and started to fatigue my eyes after playing for about 6 hours. I tried other modes but for some reason normal just looks the best. So I might end up moving the AE7000 back to the back wall rather than right behind my seats where it is now.

I know I was slacking. Usually I’ll game for 16+ hours but I had other stuff to do earlier in the day.
