sounds like a nice unit...

2 questions

1. what is the contrast ratio if you turn off dynamic adjustment. I know I turn off the lamp iris on my projector when I'm playing certain games because it can become quite distracting, though it does work well with movies.

2. what's the brightness?

of course the only important question is: are you happy with it? smile.gif
