Optoma H78DC3 Projector – Overview
One thing I noticed almost immediately, is that the Optoma H78DC3 produces a visibly sharper image (slighly) than the BenQ PE7700. Whether this is better optics, or due to some other reason, I will not speculate at this time other than to say it is more noticeable on DVD sources than Hi-Def 1080i. I have a side by side here, also from Star Wars – Attack, that you should be able to see the difference (also look a the shots above in the Jedi meeting Chamber).
OK, we’ve beaten Star Wars to death, let’s look at some Hi-Def images, again Optoma H78DC3 home theater projector on the left, and the BenQ PE7700 on the right. On individual shots (not side by sides), the Optoma H78DC3 projector is always first.
The primary differences on the image above and below, relate to contrast. The Optoma H78DC3 on the left looks a bit better. Overall, the Optoma does a better job on “sunny” shots, that is the BenQ PE7700 while overall, excellent for the price, never really gives you a “bright sunny day” look, rather, sunny days appear more hazy.
