Ensemble HD 1080 Shadow Detail Performance

The Epson does well, you can see the faint white lines (cords), that run vertically. The first image is Epson, below that the new Mitsubishi HC5500, a direct competitor, and below it the legendary JVC RS1 (which I own). The JVC when released last year pretty much set the standard for black levels and shadow detail in the under $10,000 projector category.
