    After weeks of trying to contact Optoma and the retailer who I bought the H30 from, I have still been unable to source the 16:9 lens mask for the H30.

    One was promised but has never turned up.

    Allegedly this lens mask is meant to improve the already good contrast on this projector by masking the 150 lines of resolution from the turned off pixels (4:3 to 16:9).

    It has been suggested within the massive H30 thread that it may make a difference.

    Are there H30 owners out there who could advise??

    Maybe I should just give up and enjoy the projector although I can't help thinking that the mask may be another worthwhile tweak to squeeze the maximum potential from this projector.

    The mask is definitely a worthwhile upgrade, especially if you have any light surfaces above and below the screen or are using a 4x3 screen and showing 16:9 material.

    Apparently they are out of stock at Optoma at the moment, but expected within 2 weeks. They are £10 + vat and £7.50 carriage.

    Def worth having if using a 16:9 screen (according to them).

    Rgds,

    Cheers Shaun for that price I think it's worth giving it a try.
