Mike provided these additional notes, after calibrating the BenQ W1200 projector:
There’s no reason to do a Quick Cal of the brightest mode (User 1) as User 2 has pretty good grayscale with its default settings while delivering only 70 lumens less than User 1.
If you look at the CIE chart, primary colors are pretty good, but the secondary colors are not. Cyan and yellow are too green and magenta is too blue. Adjusting Tint just makes it worse, so calibration using the CMS is necessary for good color. Of course, most people who buy a projector in this price range are not going to have it calibrated.
