Optoma HD71 Home Theater Projector Review

Optoma HD71 Shadow Details

Shadow details, like black levels were very good, but not spectacular. Again, in a projector this bright, the extra brightness, tends to make up for that. With a brighter overall image, you are going to see more shadow detail. When I say that the HD71 is “not spectacular”, I’m talking about compared to how well other 720p projectors do, when not factoring in brightness. Thus, a less bright projector may do better shadow details on a much smaller scene, but if you put both on the same screen, the brighter HD71 will most likely allow the eye to see as much or more detail. (I hope that makes sense.)

Here are a few of our standard “shadow detail” images, starting with this night scene of Gondor, from Lord of the Rings.
