Due to an unfortunate turn of events, I'm unable to get the NEC LT240 from the States like I'd intended. So instead I'm going to go for a Sanyo Z1. Anyway, it should be here tomorrow or Thursday, so I havea few questions. How many Z1 owners out there have used a Z1 with a grey screen? For instance the Draper High Contrast Grey. Is the Z1 bright enough to still produce a nice image with a grey screen? Also, what kind of filters have people been using? I noticed on that rather fantastic French site that, using ColorFacts for calibration, it was determined that the CC30R would be ideal. How does this look? Does it make sense to combine the filter and grey screen, or will that make the image too dim? It may be worth noting that I plan to project onto an 8-foot (wide) screen, though I do have good light control in my room. Cheers, Dunc P.S. - Apologies if these questions have been answered a bajillion times already, but I haven't been following Z1 threads (as I thought I was getting an LT240), and it's quite hard to search for past Z1 threads as the search engine requires words of at least 3 characters!
