Optoma HD70 Home Theater Projector Review
Here’s another pair – from Lord of the Rings, again, the first has a normal exposure, the second, overexposed to bring out details in the shed and bottom:
The HD70 definitely has rich colors. Now, I realize that TI’s BrilliantColor tends to enhance colors, but I have always been impressed with Optoma’s color handling. Consider these images, first from Starship Troopers (standard DVD):
Sharpness of the HD70 is fairly typical for the under $2000 projectors, although several are just a touch sharper. While its definitely not as sharp as the sharpest (Sanyo’s Z5, in my opinion) I watched hours of content, and never found sharpness to be an issue.
Here is a close up photo from the same Phatom image above, of the star’s necklace. Click to enlarge. Immediately below it, for sharpness comparison, is a similar image from the the Sanyo PLV-Z5, which is visibly sharper.
