Above is the re-entry scene from space cowboys, the enlarged versions are intentionally overexposed. Left is the Home Cinema 705HD, center, the PT-AX200U, right is the Optoma HD65.

Next is the casino image at night from Bond’s Casino Royale.

When comparing, the Home Cinema 705HD to the competition, look at the detail in the roof (tiles), and in the assorted trees and plants. The images below are from the same projector and slightly overexposed. Click on the images and the larger versions showing the different projectors will appear. Those are far more overexposed, to allow a closer inspection of shadow details.

Below is a heavily overexposed scene from Lord of the Rings. The overexposure lets you see all the details in the shed on the right, the structure on the left, and the plants and ground along the lower right. The blacks might not be very black, but there is plenty of detail. It’s not uncommon for projectors with lesser black level performance to do particularly well on dark shadow detail, since the darkest shadow areas appear lighter, and therefore are easier to see.
