InFocus X10 – DLP 1080p Home Theater Projector Review

InFocus X10 Projector: Highlights

  • Very bright projector in “best mode”, it can handle larger screens
  • Black level performance is OK, but then that’s why they have more expensive models
  • Very good out of the box color – barely needs any calibration beyond significantly reducing the default contrast setting
  • ISF certified, with ISF Day/Night modes available for professional calibrators
  • Two screen triggers for working with motorized and masking screens
  • Limited placement flexibilty (but typical for DLP projectors)
  • Unlike the other 1080p projectors from InFocus, this one is available from authorized on-line dealers
  • One of the lowest cost new 1080p projectors

In one sense I was disapoointed with the InFocus X10. I’ve still got the Darkchip4 IN83 here, and I’ve been watching it quite a bit. I (unreasonably) figured the X10 would be close to the IN83, and, of course, (especially with two other models in the middle), it wasn’t. That doesn’t, however detract from the X10′s actual performance, which is, considering everything, including price, very good.

The X10 is a larger home theater projector, designed primarily for ceiling mounting, but a small tiltable table stand is also included. It has an iris, but like other InFocus projectors, it is manual, not dynamic. Stop it down and the image gets less bright, but contrast improves slightly. The projector uses the same remote control as other 1080p projectors in the lineup. Like vitually all DLP projectors, it is a bit noisy in terms of audible noise, at least compared to most 3LCD projectors.
