Steve I am using a Beamax grey screen, should this affect the settings at all?


Steve Withers

Well Danny those settings are for the the unit I was reviewing in my home cinema and on my screen, so I can't make any guarantees. In addition, each bulb is different and obviously they change as they age, so all I can suggest is that you give them a try and see what you think. If you don't like the results you can always go back to one of the presets.
When you reviewing the HW55ES Steve?

When you do you will notice how hard it is to dial the sharpness

Nice to see you have added a scoring on lens quality now as well!


Steve Withers

Should be soon Lee.
