    Hello

    Recently had a demo of the Domino 20. Great machine, want to buy.

    The only problem is that it left me with a headache.

    Do you get used to this or is it a case of once a headache allways a headache?

    Cheers
    Andy

    I also find single chip dlps a bit uncomfortable to watch (rainbows and headaches). Things have got better: the virtuoso is way easier to watch than a sharp 9000 ( nearly made me puke) for example. I also have some issues with CRT and plasma so I strongly suspect its either LCD or DILA for me regardless. You may find you can get used to dlps as a few people on here have discovered.

    When I firts demoed a DLP machine I ended up with really bad eye strain and a headache.
    However, a few weeks ago, I had a week long loan of the DLP based Sharp Z91E and I had no adverse effects like head or eye ache/strain and I really put some mileage on the bulb.

    Maybe just the demo set up?

    Hope this helps.

    Cap:)

    I had eye strain too after a Domino 20 dem. No matter how good a PJ it is, I have decided to leave it as I can't risk having problems with it in the future.

    BTW the dem was done using a Stewart screen with 1.3 gain so the gain might have been a bit high for this PJ.

    A very good thing about the D-ILA projectors is that you get pretty much 0 flicker on them due to the way the LCD layer in their panels works. It's well demonstrated by viewing through a Tv camera of some sort, like you get when seeing other PC monitors etc on Tv, and they flicker like mad, which doesn't happen with D-ILA.

    I need to see a domino 30 before I totally go off dlp ( 20 is too low res for what i want). The sim HT200 (bog standard one) I saw a couple of years back was nearly livable with : saying that the virtuoso was more livable with.

    same deal as when you first get a 32" TV from anything smaller methinks... you will adjust to it in time.
