    Ive currently got a 18,000:1 Epson projector (1800lmns) and am thinking about buying a tw650 as the lumens are significantly higher, however the contrast is 15,000:1.

    Does anyone have a view on how noticeable the contrast difference would be?

    Thanks

    If those are advertised figures rather than measured in a decent video setting, the chances are you aren't getting anything close to those numbers anyway. Are those dynamic contrast figures or native?

    So it's hard to say. They're both probably going to be low in real terms and the differences pretty small if measured. What you may find is the brighter projector has greyer blacks so will look worse in that respect, or depending on how much brighter and the room conditions, it may give the impression of having more contrast due to how our eyes work.

    Why do you need more lumens? Do you have a very big screen or run the pj with ambient light?
