    2019 projector releases ?

    On the other end of the spectrum, the BenQ W2700 will arrive in February. Improvements over the W1700 include more glass/elements lens with 10% vertical lens shift, 96% DCI P3 (lumens rating drops to 2000 vs the W1700), better dynamic contrast (20/30k:1) and auto tone mapping! Pretty feature packed for a projector with an intended RRP of $2499!

    DD? LG has supported Dolby Vision - one of the original supporters, in fact. Don't you mean Samsung which is fiercely in the HDR10+ camp (created by them to boot).
  3. Didn't even have this on my radar. Might be two of the best M Night movies - not counting Sixth Sense, maybe even.

    A friend of mine who got the C7 ahead of me was reading the installation guide and the guide was very particular about how the panel was to be handled while being assembled. Even how the hand gripped the front plastic panel was highlighted. OLED panels are thin and delicate - they are just attached to the plastic panel (glass on models E and up), so strong pressure from fingers while lifting and balancing can damage the OLED panel itself.

    I got a work mate to help me. He lifted the panel on the stand and I held it steady while he screwed it in. Ps I saw an unboxing video and they laid the panel on the table and screwed in the stand. [emoji33][emoji33]

    Don't know about the Sony. Never seen them on anything else before. Not even on my Loewe but those were shipped on a freaking pallet so unlikely they could be tilted to anything. I am looking at unboxing LG C7 unboxing videos on youtube and none of them show or mention these sensors so it must be unique to LG in Australia. Has no one else seen this here in Australia?

    My C7 from JB came in a small private courier van but was upright and the delivery guy asked me to check the “tilt sensors” attached to the box to confirm that it had not been laid on one side or angled incorrectly.

    I ended up with both I find the ZD9 perfect for what I use it for - daily TV watching which may have burn in issues on OLED due to the station logos and Netflix Dolby Vision And HDR is stunning too. Also great for some dim lit HDR scenes. The C7 is great for everything else. I even game on it.

    OLED colors pop because the black floor is so low. But in actual HDR performance it is half of what a FALD display like the ZD9 can deliver.

    The last shootout I saw in the US didn’t have the Philips but had the Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Sony (with Master Series FALD And OLED) The Sony was the winner by a smidge. I think the Sony video processing is worth the premium if you watch a lot of HD and lower res stuff. I might be swayed towards the LG OLED if only because it has display led Dolby Vision

    This is a prototype so I don’t know how much of this is in the final production unit. It’s supposed to offer 6000 lumens and in HDR mode, the lamp goes to a dynamic dimming mode. I did notice some pumping when I was watching Black Panther (Oakland apartment with bright white subtitles) but otherwise didn’t notice it. I could only set it up temporarily on a pedestal and watched an entire movie with the projector just over my head and the lens was just above my head! What noise!?

    I remember thinking Man of Steel was worth watching again - when I watched it in the cinema. But when I got the UHD BluRay, it was such a dark movie that I never got around to watching it. We had the disc as a demo disc in the store and honestly, I always hid the disc because of there was a disc that made people question HDR and UHD, it would be this movie [emoji23] But after I got the LK990 PVT unit, and it’s wowed me so much with its handling of HDR, I figured I’d give it a go. Even with the setting sun on Krypton creating a dark and dull image normally, there was enough shadow detail. And when the laser gun bursts and explosions occur, there’s just a lot of pop on that image. Yummy. Think I might stay at work a little longer today. [emoji33][emoji51]

    In a darker room and a large screen (150" effective 16:9) - I was pretty impressed how decent the black levels was on the LK990. And the HDR effects in some of the scenes like the jungle shootout in the second scene of Black Panther was pretty much as good as a super large LCD screen.

    In more related news, Benq rep informs me that the new LK990 is arriving in December. Preorders are open. I’ve got the prototype here - set up till Friday. Guess there wasn’t that much to change from the LK970 except to add HDR compatibility. Have to say 5000 lumens is a lot of brightness. Even projecting a 16:9 150” ish display. And we now finally get compatibility with HDR/BT2020 signals. Black levels are better than the other DLPs and in the dark room, not as distracting as I would have imagined. I suspect a grey screen would make this projector look nigh perfect.

    I know. But that’s an indication that the display is or isn’t displaying BT2020 mode when playing SDR/BT2020 conversion.
