Close up of a computer monitor, from Space Cowboys (Blu-ray), left is X10, right is BenQ W5000. Both are very sharp!

Bottom Line Sharpness: Excellent, I'm most impressed with the sharpness, and just a little jealous.

InFocus X10 Projector: Performance, HDTV and Sports

The InFocus X10 is an extremely strong performer on HDTV and Sports. (When I talk HDTV, I'm normally referring to typical TV show content, not movie watching).

Since The InFocus's strengths include color accuracy, sharpness and brightness, and those are the key items for HDTV and sports, the X10 has to be considered excellent. Black level performance really doesn't play any significant role when watching the Olympics or a football game, and the same is pretty much true for your favorite sitcom or news broadcast.

While a couple of other similarly priced projectors can muster a few more lumens than the InFocus, none have significantly more, not enough, I think to make a difference in terms of buying decision. Certainly the Epson has an extra few hundred lumens, but the InFocus is brighter than the rest of the field, in brightest mode. Those not as bright include: The Mitsubishi HC5500, Sanyo PLV-Z2000, Panasonic PT-AE2000U and Optoma HD80 and HD803. Only the BenQ W5000, perhaps the InFocus X10's most similar competition, is about a tie, in brightness!

Bottom Line: InFocus X10 on HDTV and Sports

The X10 is a great choice, for HDTV, and Sports viewing, if it works in your room. It's got the horsepower to fight a fair amount of ambient light, better than all but a couple of other under $4000 1080p home theater projectors.
