Look to the roof tiles, and the trees on the left. The Infocus X10 does a great job in the shadow details, with the roof tiles very visible when watching the movie, whereas many projectors loose a lot more detail.

Ok one last comparison. Below is the SD-DVD image from Lord of the Rings. In both cases, they are seriously overexposed so you can see the details in the shed on the right, the wood structure on the left, and the plants along the bottom.In this case, the first image is the X10, then below, the Mitsubishi HC5500 and more expensive InFocus IN82

Wow! Truly excellent! Like its biggest brother, it’s just fantastic on shadow details. Actually it is even easier to spot the darkest of details than with the IN83, let alone anything else we’ve tested. Seems that, these days, projectors with so-so black levels tend to have especially great shadow detail resolving ability. This may be due to everything being a little brighter. Still, the details are there – in spades!
