Mitsubishi HC3800 Black Levels & Shadow Detail

As you can see, above, the Mitsubishi HC3800 beats both the Optoma HD20, and the more expensive Samsung SP-A600 in terms of black levels, but comes up short against the BenQ W6000. The Mitsubishi seems to have the best black levels of any under $2000 DLP projector, and should give most (not all) of the lower cost 3LCD projectors a run for the money, as well.

Immediately below (first two images), are from Space Cowboys, the first image normally and 2nd one, overexposed so you can see the blacks as dark grays and see how overexposed the satellite is.

For reference, below that, are the same basic images on the more expensive W6000 for comparison. Then using the side-by-side, of the BenQ vs. the Epson 6500UB, you can interpolate how much better the Epson (the reigning black level champ under $3500) is, compared to the $1400 HC3800 projector.
