Above are a variety of images that can show off sharpness, or lack of same. For comparison purposes I decided to try something a bit different, which is a close up look at the Scrabble coffee mug in Skyfall. As you can tell from the first image, the others are heavily cropped. Rather than show similarly priced projectors I thought I'd show how the HT1075 stacks up against more and more expensive projectors.
After the closeup of the HT1075, next comes BenQ's W7500 which is a bit over double the price. The two are similar, but despite the W7500 image being a good bit darker, I think we can tell that it is just a touch sharper - very close.
The next two images are interesting! Both are from far more expensive projectors that offer pixel shifting. The first of the two is the $4999 JVC RS49/X500R and the second, the $7999 (expected price) of the laser powered Epson Pro Cinema LS10000.
Now the JVC with its e-shift on, appears a touch sharper than the lower cost projectors, while the Epson appears far sharper, but, due to the relatively high level of processing that the Epson was set for, it also is producing a harder image with more grain visible. Still, the Epson's letters and numbers are the only ones that are relatively easy to determine.
Note that both the JVC and Epson will do their best work with their pixel shifting when they are fed 4K content, not standard 1080p. When that happens (forgetting that the BenQ can't accept 4K source material), both the JVC and Epson will be far sharper still. To clarify, the Epson would appear a whole lot sharper doing this same image if it was provided in true 4K content and the JVC as well. Ok, we'll let's stop worrying about $5000+ projectors, sorry for the distraction. Then after a few more general images look at the last two images above. They are from Divergent. All considered the closeup shows very good sharpness and detail in the cloth. Nice!
