Well I got my BenQ 8700+, and I thought I would start a thread in which I will give my impression of it over the next couple of weeks and post some screenshots form the DLP and from the CRT for comparison. Only set it up quickly as I think I may have a touch of flu coming on and lost interest quite quickly. First impressions, nice colours straight out the box, nice and quiet compared with my old Plus DLP, and a similar sound to the crt, a low whirr rather than a whine. Not as bright as I thought it would be, the CRT is just as bright. used avia to set the sharpness, black level and contrast, and also adjusted the user RGB levels slightly to get rid of a slight red push. Put in Vertical limit Superbit and watched a couple of scenes, the outside shots first , stunning colours, nice and sharp and lots of punch to the image, but , it does look digital. Overall very impressive though and well chuffed. Then I skipped to the bit were they are in a cave or whatever it is, this is a dark scene with lots of detail, and this is a bit of a problem for the DLP, on the CRT you can feel how dark it is and you can see all teh details in the background, the dlp however looks a little washed out, if you knock the black level down to how I knopw it should be you then loose all the detail in the image. I will try and tweak it over the next couple of days and see if I can squeeze more out of this projector, and when I do I will take some screen shots, it would not be fair to do it yet as it is a long way behind the crt at the moment. On am image quality scale I would rate the following projectors I have seen Bacrco cine 8 onyx as a 9 (not got a 10, will leave that open for a G90 or cine 9) Nec XG as a 7.5 barco 808s 7 Sharp 12k dlp as a 6 BenQ8700+ as a 5 sony 1271 crt 5 AE500 as a 3 AE100 as a 1 Please dont annyone take offence as these are all watchable projectors. Will post updates when I get round to watching it some more. edit: forgot to say that I have not seen any rainbows and it has not given me a headache like alot of dlp units do.
