  • I'm glad I wasn't the only one to go through hell trying to get my screen to completely line up and removing the ripples. I swear I took the whole thing apart 4 or 5 times before it was finally completely flat. I ended up with a 120" GrandView ALR and a LG HU85LA. It was a pain to set up, but I'm really happy with the results.

  • I absolutely love your HUlabel platform. Great content. Everything you guys talk about and how in depth you go about the product is what I love. However, please stop talking about how "I'm the boss" and "I pay you" in your videos. Those type of comments don't happen all the time, but they happen enough. The channel is absolutely awesome! However, I totally cringe when the arrogant and conceded comments are said. Just my humble opinion, I still love the show... big fat thumbs up.

  • 4,000 lumens 😳 geeze thats nearly as bright as the projectors we have at work. We have halogen lamp Panasonic at 4500 lumens, 5500 lumens and 10,000 lumens. Our lenses were designed to set back 20 feet from the 12 foot wide screen. And they were bright enough to see in a moderately lit ballroom. Taking into account the inverse square law; 4000 lumens approximately 4 feet from the screen; that would be insanely bright for a medium sized living room. The problem with projector companies is that there is no standard way to measure the output lumens that they advertise on the box. Some companies measure at operating distance and others measure right up against the lens. Epson is a great brand. But there are $100 no name / brand projectors on amazon that advertise 2000 lumens, but have a telephoto lens so by the time you pull the project back far enough to fill a 12 foot screen, it looks like 200 lumens.

Its awesome in the dark but during the day it sucks, it should have a day mode and a night mode, to change the contrasts and bright.

  • I gamed on a projector for years, it was amazing on the Xbox 360 and PS3, especially with Move games like Killzone 2 or anything that used a gun like Time Crisis 4. I had it at 105 inches and it was an incredible experience, especially at the time. I prefer my 65 in C9 OLED or a VR headset, but it would still be cool to have a giant screen again. If you just want to watch movies or even play some games, you can get projectors DIRT CHEAP now. Although the experience is not the best when you don’t pay for it, but in my experience kids love it. They can’t tell the difference. Or if you just want a cheap home theatre to wow your friends.
