Vivitek H1080FD Projector Review
Vivitek H9080FD: Bottom Line Sharpness
Better than most. At least as sharp as any 3LCD or LCoS projector we’ve viewed, but not up to the very sharpest of the DLP projectors, though equal or better than many of them. The overall image is crisp and clear, with the default sharpness looking just about right, without any significant oversharpening. Adjust to your tastes, but remember, what some consider a sharper looking image, tends to be oversharpened and actually deliver less fine detail, (in exchange for perhaps edge sharpening that makes it look sharper at the expense of real detail). No question that the Vivitek’s lens is a good one, it rolls off sharpness very little to the corners, and the projector’s evenness of illumination is also very good, which would further support the idea of very good optics.
There is a little light coming out through the lens that lands outside of the screen area. It is relatively slight (far less, for example than with the InFocus IN3). This is not a problem. No real light leaks of note around the projector itself. As to the lens light leak, don’t expect to spot it unless you have a black image on the screen, and your screen wall is fairly light.
