InFocus IN83 Darkchip4 Home Theater Projector Review: Image Quality 8

The InFocus, simply does it all well, no, rather it seems to do everything spectacularly (except for merely being extremely good at black levels). There is a point where a slight improvement in black levels (often referred to as the “Holy Grail” of home theater projectors), is less important that superiority in other areas. And that is exactly where the InFocus IN83 sits, among the competition when it comes to overall picture quality. A few more images for your consideration (I took them, so you might as well look at them.)

InFocus IN83 Projector: Overall Image Quality

The Infocus IN83 is a tough one to beat when it comes to overall image quality. I’ve already raved about skin tones, impressed you with extremely good (but a few are better) black levels, and first class shadow detail.

InFocus IN83 Projector: Bottom Line

Outstanding! The InFocus rivals the best projectors at shadow detail, and at overall color handling it’s the best yet. Sporting extra sharpness, and twice the brightness compared to our Best in Class (under $10,000) champ, the JVC RS2, will have the InFocus IN83 definitely winning over many fans of the RS2. And that’s despite the RS2’s “better than everyone elses” black levels.
