Great projector once you get the settings figured out
on April 26, 2012
I use this projector mainly for watching movies/tv on the "big screen," so it's important for me to have picture quality that compliments this. I spent a lot of time fiddling around with the projector's settings (easily changed by using the included remote), because the unit's provided settings leave something to be desired.
I wanted to post these on Amazon in the hope that it would help others trying to optimize their picture quality. The biggest thing for me was the saturation of the color red. The way the unit comes wired, "red" scenes in movies are ridiculously over-saturated.
Here are my settings for playing non-3d content:
Reference Mode: Movie
Brightness: 48 (the unit seemed way too bright to me. Good for 3d, though)
Color Setting: Red - Saturation: 98 Gain: 118
White Intensity: 4
Gamma: 1 (seemed to capture the most background detail)
Also, you have to mute the audio in "audio settings" if you don't want it coming out of the projector itself (which, connected to my home theater, I don't).
As far as the 3d-ready feature... it works great! I've paired the projector with the Viewsonic Vp3d1 Converter Box and they work together beautifully.
Bottom line: great projector, but you definitely have to fiddle around with it to suit your own needs. I hope this was helpful!!
