Epson Home Cinema 1080UB – Shadow Details 2

First, is the Epson, followed by the same image on the Sony VW60 (Sony’s newest, SXRD 1080p projector (LCoS, like JVC, rather than LCD or DLP). After that, the JVC RS2, RS1, the Mitsubishi HC4900 and HC6000, and, then the lower resolution Epson HC720, and, lastly, the Panasonic PT-AE2000U; probably the Epson’s closest competitor. Look at the details in the background on ther right – at the mountains and what’s below them, as well as the colors that come out in the buildings, and the area in front of the steps

Next on our list, is this second image from Lord of the Rings. The thumbnails below show a “normal” exposure. Click on the thumbnails for larger, overexposed images, and look for details in the shed on the right, the wood in the structure on the right, and the plant growth along the bottom. Just two images this time, the left is the Epson, the right, The Optoma HD8000 , a slightly more expensive DLP projector, but then almost identical to the Optoma HD80, which is less than the Epson. The Optoma HD80 is a “classic” DLP 1080p projector, with very good black levels for a typical DLP projector
