Epson HC720 Home Theater Projector: Sharpness

October 5, 2008
This Epson almost shouts out: "look how sharp my image is". I normally point out that even the softest 1080p projector is far beyond the sharpest 720p projector at resolving detail and appearing sharp. With this Epson, that simply is less true.

Sadly, I have a bit of a problem with the the sharpness images for the HC720. This is the first time I've delegated the cropping, resizing, and naming of the images to my daughter, who does a lot of my webwork. In the past, I've used Photoshop for all of that, which she doesn't have yet. She's using a more basic program, and I can tell you that, likely due to the resizing algorithms used, Photoshop retains more of the sharpness of the original. I'll try to replace the DTS and Monitor images below shortly, with ones done in Photoshop. Even so, the Epson does at least as well, as the Panasonic competition.
