I have a SIM HT200 which I have to say I am pretty impressed with but I'm watching far more on the big screen than I ever thought I would, so I am now thinking about an upgrade. So here are the things I'd like to improve upon in order of priority: 1) Light spill around projected image (Halo ?) 2) Image brightness or do I mean contrast ? ( A little on the dim side at the moment) 3) A quieter projector. 4) I only occasionally see rainbows so not really an issue. CRT is out of the question. I feed the projector with a progressive scan signal and virtually all material is 16:9 and I project on to a 7ft Owl matt screen, gain 1.1 I think . Viewing is always in a totally blacked out room. So here are my questions: Q1) Would light spill be less of an issue if I opted for a 16:9 projector ? Q2) Do all DLPs inherently suffer with light spill/halo ? Q3) Would the Sim HT200DMF or the HT300 give me any of the improvements I'm looking for ? The cost of the HT300 frightens me !
