Yeah will have a play with dynamic today if I get the chance. My Zidoo will do SDR to LLDV so is definitely a work around if needed. I had a little play on Xbox 4K SDR and it was on the threshold of being a bit bright. So we'll see. This screen didn't like being painted and has already developed problems so no harm in painting it GS3 for now. Gaming was really good too btw. I don't have a 2.1 amp so limited to 4K60 but the response seemed very quick.
Watched the latest Doctor strange last night. By far the best streaming I have watched on a PJ in my room. I know Disney plus don't usually have particularly high bit rates, but this looked really good with the HDfury LLDV hack into this PJ. I am happy as is, if Dynamic improves on what it is now then it really will be amazing. Such a clean looking picture overall, edge to edge sharpness and the laser dimming was not noticeable at all. The pixel shifting does seem improved on this, it definitely looks a bit smoother than the 9400. Hard to describe more solid and less digital.
Whilst 75% laser certainly isn't as loud as High on the TW9400 or X7900 it is still noticeable though and there is a pitch which is most likely eshift rather than fan noise which seems to fluctuate and draws attention to itself. Will see whether I get used to it or think of ways to make it quieter. I’m sat right underneath which didn’t help. Just thought I would mention in case anyone gets one and expects silence.
The main advantage of dynamic is the full fade to black which you don't get in any other mode but it may not be able to be as accurately calibrated as natural or cinema.
For the Xbox, you could try plugging it directly into the projector and then use the eArc capability to send the audio back to your AVR so you get 120hz support.
I haven't really noticed any e-shift noise - on the TW9400 this could sometimes be quite noticeable at 50/60hz. I find fan noise is also much better than the TW9400 - 50% laser fan is almost silent and 75% is quite quiet (not enough to bother me or even be noticeable except during very quiet scenes) - projector is ceiling mounted just behind me.
I used the DVS HDR test pattern version 2 to check the HDR Chipping, I noted that LS12000 could display around 1400 nit contents at HDR set as 8 (default?).
So I am now using 1400 nit in MAX luminance [nits] setting of Vertex2, will watch more clips and report the outcome later.
I find 1000 nits works well with Epson HDR projectors (both the TW9400 and LS12000) with HDR slider 4-6 depending on laser power setting and screen size (for dynamic mode try HDR slider 1 with scene adaptive gamma at 14)
if your projector has been calibrated, you should set appropriately for what it's been calibrated to which should give the best results.
