“Best mode” refers to a calibrated mode that focuses on reproducing a picture as accurate to the source material as possible. I takes into consideration many different aspects of the picture – color balance, color saturation, skin tone, brightness, contrast, gamma adjustment, etc.
“Brightest mode” is usually a calibrated mode that focuses more on light output rather than accurate image reproduction.
There is often lots of talk about “best mode” vs “brightest mode”, and they both are useful, so I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on their uses/impact on gaming.
I just returned a few days ago from my month long adventure overseas (sorry for the extended absence) and I thought I’d get back into things with a bit about input lag. As you know, it’s a fairly important “spec”for gaming – and it is definitely going to be a standard measurement for upcoming game reviews.
Ideally, input lag is zero (like we saw in the recently reviewed Optoma GT720), but most projectors will have some measurable amount of input lag.
So how much is too much? Read the rest of this entry »
Because it’s impossible to address every single game individually, I have decided to group some of the most popular genres into categories. These categories were primarily based on how similarly I believe they perform in a projector environment. Keep in mind, this is simply a “guide”. Some games may fit in between or into multiple categories or into none at all. Read the rest of this entry »
