    I've noticed that a lot of the manufatures have settled back into the old ways of specmanship and have gone for measuring their contrast ratios in the FULL ON/ FULL OFF mode. This looks nice on the brochure but not not a lot of help when comparing it aginst other kit.

    Contast needs to be measured on a properly set up image with all the greyscale showing.


    Unless you want to use your projector as a light bulb :)

    Is this why I say a DLP in HCC with a quoted Contrast Ratio or 3000:1 or something?

    That would be a massive leap frog of CRT and I was almost impressed, until I realised it was an obvious 'un truth' about 2 nano-seconds later!

    Anyway, all these specs mean nothing, it's the pictures that count.

    I have a really nice 100 watt halogen bulb, conrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 going cheap! Picture quality is a bit naff though!
