Mitsubishi HC6800 Projector Review
Mitsubishi HC6800 Black Levels & Shadow Detail
While I often agonize whether a new home theater projector meets my subjective definition of being an “ultra-high contrast” projector, that isn’t a problem here. The HC6800′s blacks are just not that good. Mitsubishi offers up their not nearly as bright HC7000 for those craving that better black level performance.
If I had to pick a couple of projectors most similar to the HC6800 in terms of blacks, Epson’s Home Cinema 8100 comes to mind, as does the the good old Sanyo PLV-Z700, although I’d give the Mits a slight advantage, more so compared to the Z700. Although – or because, the black levels just aren’t all that black, the dark shadow detail stands out nicely.
