    I wouldn't pay to much attention to severnoaks i think they must have fell out with themescene as they tried to put me off as well said they sounded like lawnmowers :rotfl:
    Anyway to confuse u a bit more had a demo of Screenplay 5700 [DLP] a Hitachi PJ- TX10 and a Sony HS20 [Ithink] i did not see any rainbows with screenplay although i was not blown away by picture either, blacks were not great and a little bit smearing on fast moving scenes. The guy said it had been properly calibrated so u decide !
    The Hitachi was a nice little m/c a bit plasticky though, could see panel structure but still not bad for the price. Watched lotr on it.
    The guy then said he would set up the sony, unplugged Hitachi stuck it on carpet then pulled the sony onto coffee table. Plugged it in used test patern to align and away it went [what a peice of pi.. to set up] The picture [lotr] was lovely the best :clap: no panel structure great blacks and colour...I want one :devil:
    Get more than one demo before u buy and good luck...

    Im using a 4805 with a DRH screen with no problems at all, just try to make sure you block out as much light in the room as possible.

    Grey screens work well if you have ambient light in the room, or if you want to improve the black level. If you don't have issues with either of those, then a white screen should be fine.

    LOL i can understand u saying that they fell out with Themescene because as s0on as i said the name the dude was like " none in sorry, but i have this 4805 which is far better". . . commission talk i say :smashin:

    yea i think i will demo both tho thats for sure! its just the screen i think im going to have a real problem with but i will get them to maybe demo on a couple of screens also, if they can that is!

    But on another note. . . thanks for the replys dude, much needed :thumbsup:
